SLIFF - the 7th Voyage of Sinbad and Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan
The 7th Voyage of Sinbad
Nathan Juran, U.S., 1958, 88 min.
Friday, Nov. 15, 7 p.m., Webster U./Moore
As part of a double bill that pays tribute to the late Ray Harryhausen  which includes a documentary on the special-effects master  SLIFF is delighted to screen one of his essential works, "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad." Although Harryhausen was never credited with the direction of the features whose effects he supervised, he was intimately involved in all aspects of the films, and his mythic creatures and stop-motion animation are the movies' true raison d'ĂȘtre. "7th Voyage" follows legendary Sinbad the Sailor (Kerwin Mathews) and his betrothed, Princess Parisa (Kathryn Grant), as they tussle with evil magician Sokurah both in Baghdad and on the island of Colossa. The film includes several iconic Harryhausen creations: the Cyclops, the dancing snake woman, and the famous sword fight between Sinbad and the skeleton. TV Guide calls the film "one of the greatest achievements in fantasy filmmaking since 'King Kong'" and "an assault of the visually fantastic."

Shown on a double bill with:
Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan
Gilles Penso, France, 2011, 93 min.
Friday, Nov. 15, 8:45 p.m., Webster U./Moore
SLIFF pays homage to the great stop-motion animator and special-effects master Ray Harryhausen, who died in May, with a double bill of a celebratory documentary and an essential film featuring his work. Famed for the monsters and mythical creatures he created for such films as "Jason and the Argonauts" and "Clash of the Titans," Harryhausen inspired a who's who of contemporary filmmakers. In this definitive documentary, which features abundant interviews with Harryhausen, a glittering array of directors and special-effects wizards pay tribute. Among those featured are James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Nick Park, Phil Tippett, Terry Gilliam, Dennis Muren, John Landis, Joe Dante, Guillermo Del Toro, and John Lasseter. The film gives viewers privileged access to original models, artwork, and miniatures and includes previously unseen footage of tests and experiments.
