    Synopsis


    The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
    Whilst Sinbad (Kerwin Mathews) is on his way to Baghdad, transporting the Princess Parisa (Kathryn Grant), who is to become his bride and secure peace between her kingdom and his, the ship encounters the isle of Colossa. Sinbad and his men are attacked by a gigantic, bestial one-eyed Cyclops, and are saved only when the mysterious magician Sokurah (Torin Thatcher) appears and uses a magic lamp to protect Sinbad's men. But in the process of escaping harm, Sokurah loses the lamp to the Cyclops. He desperately wants to retrieve it and tries to persuade Sinbad to put about and return to Colossa -- but the captain won't jeopardize the safety of the princess or the success of his mission, and the Caliph of Baghdad (Alec Mango) feels the same way, even after Sokurah amazes the court by conjuring up a snake-woman. It is only when the princess is shrunk by an evil spell, the breaking of which requires the shell from the egg of the giant Roc -- which resides on Colossa -- that Sokurah can get his expedition mounted, with Sinbad in command. With a crew made up of a handful of his bravest men and some of the most desperate convicts in the Caliph's prison, he has to contend with potential mutiny at every turn, and the men are driven almost to madness before they even reach Colossa. Once there, they find terrors as great as the Cyclops and the treachery of the magician, but Parisa -- in her tiny state -- also discovers the beautiful world inside the lamp, and the lonely boy genie (Richard Eyer) who inhabits it. They strike the bargain that, when Sinbad's bravery is added to the equation, will bring their quest to an end. If, that is, they can all survive the dangers that Sokurah puts in their path. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

      The Blu-ray is definitely a step up in picture and sound quality from the DVD. This movie was a big hit when it was released in 1958 and I remember seeing it at the drive-in theater when I was 10 years old. I thought it was wonderful and it was my favorite movie at that time. The movie has it all, a handsome adventurer, a beautiful princess, a genie in the lamp, an evil magician, and lots of fantastic monsters by Ray Harryhausen. I watched the movie in its entirety when I received the Blu-ray and my opinion of the movie has not changed. It is still a fantastic adventure 58 years after its release.

      The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

      The 7th Voyage of Sinbad is my all time favorite. Advanturous Story yet fills with part romance genre. I like everything about it, from the plot, settings, charaters and to the costumes. Even though the plot is simple and the usual Hero saves the Day and his Love type. However, It is still one of the greatest Sinbad movie ever made. Only misfortune would the graphic and special effects. A bit of too unrealist Overall, It is a wonderful and worth recommending to anyone who is into old time island treasure advanture fantasy.
