Synopsis

Triple bill of fantasy adventure films. In 'The 7th Voyage of Sinbad' (1958) when his beloved Princess Parisa (Kathryn Grant) is turned into a miniature by an evil magician, Sinbad (Kerwin Mathews) undertakes a quest to the island of Colossus to break the spell. En route he must battle various mythological monsters including the Cyclops, a sword-wielding skeleton, a two-headed bird and a dragon. In 'The Golden Voyage of Sinbad' (1973) in order to restore the deposed Vizier (Douglas Wilmer) to his throne, Sinbad (John Phillip Law) sets sail for the island of Lemuria on a quest for the Golden Crown. Obstacles in his path include villainous magician Koura (Tom Baker) and a host of monsters including centaurs, griffins and living statues. Finally, in 'Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger' (1977) Sinbad (Patrick Wayne) sets sail for more adventures when he comes to the assistance of Princess Farah (Jane Seymour), whose brother has been transformed into an ape by their wicked stepmother. To break the spell Sinbad enlists the help of soothsayer Melanthius (Patrick Troughton), and embarks on a dangerous voyage with his trusty crew.
