(1963, Don Chaffey) In quest of the fabled Golden Fleece, Jason and the men of the Argo battle a Bronze Colossus, airborne Harpies, and a squad of sword-wielding skeletons, underscored by Bernard Herrmann’s percussive dissonance. Approx. 104 min. DCP restoration.

“Harryhausen’s inventions are pleasingly imaginative, not least the army of waspishly pugnacious, sword-wielding skeletons which pop out of the ground when the Hydra’s teeth are sown. Great fun, with a Bernard Herrmann score to boot.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)
(1958, Nathan Juran) Kerwin Mathew’s Sinbad takes on an evil sorcerer’s monster team, including the high-flying Giant Roc, the visually-challenged Cyclops and a sword-wielding skeleton. Approx. 88 min. DCP restoration.
“Harryhausen's knockout special effects include a cyclops, dragon, and dueling skeleton, all expertly and realistically manipulated, employing techniques learned and developed from his mentor, the late, great Willis H. ‘King Kong’ O’Brien… Bernard Herrmann’s typically effective score tops off the whole adventure.”
