The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad is a 1958 Technicolor heroic fantasy adventure film from Columbia Pictures, produced by Charles H. Schneer, directed by Nathan H. Juran, that stars Kerwin MathewsTorin ThatcherKathryn GrantRichard Eyer, and Alec Mango

This was the first of three Sinbad feature films from Columbia, the later two from the ’70s being The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973) and Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger(1977). All three Sinbad films were conceptualized by Ray Harryhausen using Dynamation, the full color widescreen stop-motion animation technique that he created.

While similarly named, the film does not follow the storyline of the tale “The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad the Sailor” but instead has more in common with the Third and Fifth voyages of Sinbad.

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad was selected in 2008 for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
