  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad is a 1958 Harryhausen Movie featuring Kerwin Mathews as Sinbad the Sailor, but starring Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion monsters.

This was the first feature film using stop-motion animation effects to be completely shot in color.

It was nominated for the 1959 Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation.

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad provides examples of:

  • Bald of Evil: The sorcerer.
  • Cyclops: There is a cyclops that looks like a giant one-eyed satyr with a horn on its head. A second one also in that film is easy to spot--it has two horns.
  • Chekhov's Gun: The giant crossbow.
  • Dem Bones: Sinbad fights an animated skeleton, prefiguring the army of animated skeletons in Jason and the Argonauts.
  • Eye Scream: The first cyclops is defeated when Sinbad shoves a fiery torch onto its eyeball, blinding it, and then leading it off a nearby cliff.
  • Freeing the Genie: Near the end of the movie Sinbad throws the lamp into a river of lava, which frees the genie inside as was prophesied.
  • Giant Flyer: The roc.
  • Incredible Shrinking Man: The magician shrinks Princess Parisa as part of his plan to get the magic lamp.
  • Large Ham: Sokura: "My spirit races ahead of time itself!"
    • Most of the pirates count as well: "THE WIND SCREAMS LIKE TEN-THOUSAND FIENDS!"
  • Siege Engines: Near the end Sinbad's sailors use a giant ballista to kill a dragon.
  • Snake People: The evil magician temporarily combines a woman and a snake to create a four-armed woman with a snake's tail.
