Saaay.. Isn't that Jane Seymour?? by Loneanimator Saaay.. Isn't that Jane Seymour?? by Loneanimator
Skinny dipping in Hyperborea is interrupted by Ray Harryhausen's giant caveman Trog (in "Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger").

This was such a bad movie, except for all the hot babes and cool monsters like Trog and a huge walrus ... OK I guess it was a really good movie.

It's probably a bad movie with many good moments.

 Actually no, Jane Seymour's the screamer - the one we're all (well, the one approximately half of us are) looking at is Miss Taryn Power, who appears shown to her fullest advantage (with the exception of a HAIRY GREAT THING who is, admittedly, expressing only what the rest of the Red-Blooded World is feeling at this point in the movie).

 .:blush:. I hope the ladies themselves would take being described as the Greatest Visual Spectacle in a Harryhausen Fantasy Movie as a compliment and not an insufferable Liberty?

Jane Seymour was cute, but Taryn Power was sensual :)

Apparently Taryn Power had no qualms about stripping down, while Seymour thought that it was a bit embarrassing. So she had the entire production team mount the camera where it was supposed to be, and the hunker down behind the rock she and Power was sun bathing on, operating it from their hiding place. As one of them said "while the whole world observed her undressed on the cinema screen" :)

 In all fairness Ms. Seymour didn't have to look the whole world in the eye after they'd got an eyeful!:D (Big Grin)

It so interesting to see her play such a sex symbol in this movie...and then think of her now. Like she still looks amazing today...but it's hard not to think of Dr. Quinn when I see her.

She's kind of an innocent sex symbol in this movie, but so are all Harryhausen heroines I think.

I'm liking this apparent pattern of Harryhausen tributes.  Judging by your comments here, it seems like 7th Voyage might not be too far off.  I would predict a depiction of a fight between the second cyclops and Sokurah's dragon in such an entry, but I'll hold out a bit of hope that it ends up being the bizarre and unique snake woman that Sadi becomes for a spell. 
Either way, this one here is strikingly close to the source material; excellent work on Trog~

Hey; we like what we like, and that's perfectly fine. My favorite among the Sinbad movies is probably 7th Voyage (no surprise), because of the raw energy of it, and the fact that everything works in it. Then, on a sliding scale, my preferences go in order with the sequels. I guess I missed the mythological creatures in The Eye of the Tiger, but Harryhausen always wanted to bring together the fairy tale world of Sinbad with the prehistoric. I do, however, think that Patrick Wayne did a better job at being Sinbad than the general opinion allows (roundhouse kicks and all!)

I liked Eye of the Tiger because I felt it had more substance to it; there was more going on in that movie and it didn't always feel like it was just slogging along at times, there was less meaningless filler in this film than in the first and second ones. And, I think it had more of Harryhausen's works in it than most of his films (seriously, there's the baboon, the demons/ghouls, the Golden Minoton, the giant bee, the giant walrus, the Troglodyte, AND the Smilodon, all animated by Ray himself!). I also liked Patrick Wayne because, like John Philip Law in the previous film, he actually LOOKS the part in that way-back-when he could probably pass himself off as having some middle-eastern ancestry, or that both actors had dark beards! I don't know, you be the judge of that!

My second favorite would have to be the first one. If it weren't for Eye of the Tiger, then 7th Voyage would be my favorite. It's straight forward, has some good scenes and Harryhausen work, including one of my favorite creature fight scenes that he's done (my all-time favorite will be the Ymir vs the elephant, and the second would be the Troglodyte vs the Smilodon, third is Gwangi fighting both the Styracosaurus AND the elephant because I liked Gwangi more than the original King Kong, and the one between the Cyclops and dragon is a close fourth). The skeleton duel was also good, but it pales before the skeleton ARMY fight scene in Jason and the Argonauts.

Golden Voyage I haven't seen in a good long while, probably because when I saw it I always thought it was kind of "meh". I don't know why, it just never clicked with me, even though it also has good Harryhausen work, a compelling story about a disfigured man trying to regain his glory as a sheik and enlists Sinbad's help to reach the Fountain of Youth before the sorcerer Koura can reach it. Pretty sure I got some details wrong, but that's the gist of it I think. It's got what I like and yet it just came off as kind of meh for me. I think what got me most was the creature fight scene, and I think this is the start of a pattern here; the two creatures, a centaur/cyclops and a griffin, both representing evil and good respectively, fight to the death and the centaur kills the griffin, albeit with the help of Koura. That really got to me and I think because I really liked the griffin and was rooting for it as a kid, and to see it literally get strangled to death kind of left an imprint on me. And I get the reason why; it's so Sinbad could slay the monster himself. We see this in the following film Eye of the Tiger, where the Smilodon kills the Troglodyte, yet Sinbad kills the Smilodon. And in a lot of B-movies that have creatures fighting each other, it's always the one that's on the side of good (or at least NOT on the side of evil) that has to lose, all so the hero can slay that movie's Jabberwoky (with MOST of the exception going to Japanese tokusatsu/anime, and media inspired by those two art forms), and as a guy who grew up watching Godzilla movies, to me, it's like watching Godzilla fight a monster and LOSE said fight all so the JSDF could win, and before you say anything, no "Godzilla vs Destroyah" DOES NOT count because at the end of it, Godzilla had him on the ropes and Destroyah was retreating, therefore he LOST, and the JSDF only defeated a dying flying corpse. But I digress. All in all, it's the film that introduced me to this trope and it left me a little bit jaded from then onwards.

So which ones were your favorites again?

The Harryhausen Sinbad movies are Hollywood fantasies of a brand that would be impossible to make in the PC climate of today. American and British actors speaking with Middle-Eastern accents?? Unthinkable! I don't waste any time analyzing such stuff. They're honest adventure movies, not out to offend anyone.

It's hard to pick any specific favorite Harryhausen battle. Monster vs monster would probably have to be cyclops vs dragon, just because it's so iconic. Man vs monster is Tumak vs allosaurus (One Million Years BC) because it's so dynamic; lots of energetic action and fantastic sound effects.

Golden Voyage is far from a perfect movie, though it's perhaps the prettiest-looking of all the Harryhausen Sinbads. I also felt bad about killing off the griffin in that way. As a representative for the forces of good, it seemed a fairly feeble guardian of the fountain, and the centaur is also a pretty awkward monster villain. But I think the cast is super strong, the sets are gorgeous, and it's a pretty solid fantasy movie. It certainly doesn't make any excuses for its content, but steams ahead with full confidence.
