Ray Harryhausen's first Dynamation effort in Arabian Nights territory. His knockout special effects include a cyclops, dragon, and duelling skeleton (forerunner of the battling skeletons sequence in Jason and the Argonauts), all expertly and realistically manipulated, employing techniques learned and developed from his mentor, the late, great Willis H King Kong O'Brien. Torin Thatcher's evil magician (a part he repeated for the less enthralling Jack the Giant Killer, also for Juran, three years later) more than compensates for Kerwin Mathews' rather wet Sinbad, while Bernard Herrmann's typically effective score tops off the whole adventure.
