THE 7th VOYAGE OF SINBAD
By far the most "classic" of the three, this spectacular piece of cinematic adventure may very well be Ray Harryhausen's masterpiece. Legendary sailor Sinbad (Kerwin Matthews, in his signature role) is on the verge of marriage to Princess.....uh, I forget (a beautiful Kathryn Grant), and uniting their two countries. But not before the evil magician Sokurah (Torin Thatcher, in an extremely amusing performance) can shrink the princess to a doll's size in order to get Sinbad to return him to the Island of Colossa. There, Sinbad battles a giant Rok, a fire-spewing dragon, and (my personal favorite), the Cyclops...all brilliantly achieved by the greatest FX pioneer of all time, Ray Harryhausen. Oh, and there is the classic duel with the skeleton. Now I constantly hear people say, "Oh, like in 'Jason & the Argonauts'?", and it drives me crazy! Though the battle was far more elaborate and, well, better in that film, this is the original, people, the one that started it all! Indeed, this type of fight would appear again, and again, and again in subsequent Harryhausen films, ever improving (which really showed the true ingenuity of the man). "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" is most likely, THE fantasy-adventure classic of all time, though some people say the same for the original "The Thief of Baghdad". But, I haven't seen that film, so I couldn't say. Plus, it doesn't have special-effects wizard Ray Harryhausen behind the camera to provide dazzling creatures right out of a dreamworld! A rousing, witty score by Bernard Herman, too!
Rating: 5/5
THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD
My favorite of all three films, even if it doesn't really deserve the title "classic" as much as "7th Voyage" did.

Ray Harryhausen's primal importance in the realm of science fiction and special effects goes without saying. These are marvelous adventure films, truly entertainment for the whole family.
As a musician, however, I must point out that one of these films, The 7th Voyagoe of Sinbad, contains what is without question the single most important piece of music every written for a film- and that is, of course, Bernard Herrmann's score.
Herrmann, who is by now well known to most people as one of the prime movers in the realm of adventure and science fiction musical scores, wrote one of his best for this film.
Back in 1958, as an eleven year old, I remember seeing this film at the old Roxy Theater in NYC. I was entranced by it, but most of all by the music. It had such an impact on me that it decided the direction my life would take, that is, as a composer. If music could have such a terrific and powerful effect on people, then I wanted to take my fledgling efforts "all the way." This lead me to NYCs High School of Music and Art and, eventually, to a Bachelor's, a Master's and a Doctoral degree in composition from Juilliard. I have never regretted that decision, nor forgot the impact of that moment.
I've been able to share this with my own children. There are few films so relatively pure in their fantasy. Enjoy, but listen, too.

A good trio of films which will take older audiences back to the days of Saturday afternoon matinees and the younger folks can have a taste of the work of one of Hollywood's greats -- Ray Harryhausen.
The stories are the typical hack and slash, rogue magician, rescue the damsel or get the jewel kind of fare which we're all very familiar with. The imaginative effects of Mr. Harryhausen and Mr. Hermann's musical score are what make these films stand out from others such as, say, Sons of Hercules.
In my own personal opinion, the best of the films is the second -- The Golden Voyage. There is much mystisism and adventure which will delight even the most jaded of fans -- and the plot is a bit more involved.
As to the set -- well, DVD is most always perferable over VHS if for no other reason than it will outlast tape. Especially if you have kids who like watching this sort of film again and again. The films are a bit 'pricey' considering their age and all -- and the set doesn't offer you much in the way of a savings. Still, These are classics and can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
By the way, if these three films capture your interest, check out the '60s version of 'Jason and the Argonauts'. Same type of storey -- different main character.
If you're not sure whether these are your type of entertainment, rent one of them (again, I'm partial to 'The Golden Voyage'). If you enjoy that, you'll enjoy the others.

This set collects all three of the Ray Harryhausen/Charles H. Schneer Sinbad films on DVD, for better or worse. The cast and crew may have changed over the years, but one thing remained constant, that being a genuine sense of fun and excitement inherent within all three films, assisted by Ray Harryhausen's dedication to his craft of bringing to life fantastic, mythical and imaginative creatures through his process of Dynamation. All in all a highly enjoyable set at a decent price.

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)

Co-written by Ken Kolb ("The Wild Wild West") and Ray Harryhausen, and directed by Nathan Juran (The Brain from Planet Arous, 20 Million Miles to Earth, Attack of the 50 Foot Woman), the film stars Kerwin Mathews (The 3 Worlds of Gulliver, Octaman) and Kathryn Grant (The Night the World Exploded, Operation Mad Ball), who would later be known as Kathryn Crosby, after her marriage to Bing `Der Bingle' Crosby. Also appearing is Richard Eyer (The Invisible Boy), Torin Thatcher (The Crimson Pirate, Jack the Giant Killer), Alec Mango (The Strange World of Planet X), Harold Kasket (Moulin Rouge - the original, not the popular remake), and Alfred Brown (Crack in the World).

Sinbad (Mathews) must rescue the fair Princess Parisa (Grant) from the spell of an evil magician named Sokurah (Thatcher), who looks a lot like Albert Finney playing Daddy Oliver Warbucks in the 1982 film Annie. Along the way he encounters a giant Cyclops (perhaps more than one), a snake woman, an overgrown, two-headed, eagle-like bird and her two-headed offspring, a sword fighting skeleton, a ginormous fire-breathing dragon, and a genie named Baronni (Eyer).

The anamorphic widescreen (1.85:1) looks sharp and clean, and the Dolby Digital 2.
