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.
