Kerwin Matthews is Sinbad. He and his men discover an island inhabited by a race of cyclops. On the island they meet an man being chased by one. His name is Sokurah, and thus starts a great little adventure film.
Sokurah is an evil magician an when he was on the island he lost a lamp which enabled him to summon a genie. He wants the lamp back, so he takes drastic measures to get Sinbad to go back to the island. He shrinks the woman Sinbad loves to six inches in height an tells of a formula to make her normal, and part of that formula can only be found on the island.
Back on the island Sinbad fights Cyclops, a two headed bird called a Roc and a huge dragon that is Sokurah's pet. This film is non stop action and fun with all of the effects being handled by Harryhausen. There is even a skeleton who sword fights with Sinbad, an this scene was redone on a much larger scale for "Jason And The Argonauts".
Ray Harryhausen was a genius at stop motion animation, an to this day all of his stuff looks much better than any CGI garbage thrown in my face.
The rest of the cast includes Richard Eyre as the Genie, Kathryn Grant as the Princess, Torin Thatcher as Sokurah and Alec Mango as the Caliph. Grand entertainment for one and all, and not to be missed.
