The Latest on DVD: Sailor Swoon

For cinematic swashbuckling action, one could do no better than The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, available today in a 50th Anniversary EditionDVD and Blu-ray.

Despite its title, this was the first of the Sinbad movies, and set the standard for all mythological fantasy epics to follow, from Hercules to those hobbits. Featuring a one-eyed Cyclops, a two-headed Roc and the dashing Kerwin Mathews as our hero, the real star of 7th Voyage is special effects legend Ray Harryhausen, at the top of his game here (yes, there's sword-wielding skeletons).

The new DVD features a pristine, hi-definition transfer that captures the magic of Harryhausen's "eye-popping" special effects in dazzling Technicolor, plus an audio commentary with the master himself.
