Full Plot

While sailing with Princess Parisa to Baghdad to their wedding, Sinbad finds the Colossa Island and anchors his vessel to get supplies for the starving crew. Sinbad and his men help the magician Sokurah to escape from a Cyclops that attacks them, and Sokurah uses a magic lamp with a boy jinni to help them; however, their boat sinks and he loses the lamp. Sokurah offers a small fortune to Sinbad to return to Colossa, but he does not accept and heads to Baghdad. The citizens and the Caliph of Baghdad are celebrating the peace with Chandra, and they offer a feast to the Sultan of Chandra. Sakurah requests a ship and crew to return to Colossa but the Caliph refuses to jeopardize his countrymen. However, the treacherous magician shrinks the princess and when the desperate Sinbad seeks him out, he tells that he needs to return to Colossa to get the ingredient necessary for the magic potion. But Sinbad has only his friend Harufa to travel with him, and he decides to enlist a doubtful crew in the prison of Baghdad, in the beginning of his dangerous voyage to Colossa to save the princess and avoid the eminent war between Chandra and Baghdad. Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil When captain Sindbad and his men land on the island Colossa they are confronted with man-eating cyclops.

[about to land on Collosa] Sinbad: May Allah grant we find food and water. Harufa: And may Allah grant we find nothing else. Sokurah the Magician: Kill! Kill him! Sokurah the Magician: From the land beyond beyond... from the world past hope and fear... I bid you Genie, now appear. Sinbad: For another such kiss, I'd invent a whole continent. Princess Parisa: [reading the Genie's inscription] When the big that is small shall again become tall, into fiery rock to rise you must fall. Barani - the Genie: I cannot return to the real world until I am called by my name... Barani. [repeated line] Barani - the Genie: I shall try.

- A soundtrack album of 'Bernard Herrmann (I)' (qv)'s score was released on Colpix, Columbia's record label. In later years it would become one of the most sought-after albums by soundtrack collectors. It was finally released on CD, along with the full score, in 2009.

- 'Alfred Brown (I)' (qv) is dubbed.

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

- Initially, 'Ray Harryhausen' (qv) wanted 'Miklós Rózsa (I)' (qv) or 'Max Steiner (I)' (qv) to score _The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)_ (qv), but 'Charles H. Schneer' (qv) persuaded Harryhausen to agree to hire 'Bernard Herrmann (I)' (qv) instead. Herrmann's score was so well received, and he worked so well with Schneer and Harryhausen, he ended up scoring three more of their films: _The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (1960)_ (qv), _Mysterious Island (1961)_ (qv), and _Jason and the Argonauts (1963)_ (qv). Harryhausen eventually got his wish, however, when Miklós Rózsa scored _The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973)_ (qv).
