Bernard Herrmann Weekend!
United States | 1958 | Nathan H. Juran
Ray Harryhausen did the stop-motion animation for this exciting and exotic adventure fantasy that is on the National Film Registry and has a perfect 100% “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes.com. The film follows the heroic exploits of Sinbad the Sailor, who, while transporting his future bride to Baghdad, is attacked by a giant Cyclops, then runs afoul of a powerful magician. This was Bernard Herrmann’s first (and favorite) of four scores he wrote for Harryhausen movies.
88 min. 35mm.
