A Ray Harryhausen Classic Double Feature
20 Million Miles to Earth (1957) and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)
Two classic Harryhausen films, presented in conjunction with the exhibition “The Fantastical Worlds of Ray Harryhausen.”
One of Harryhausen’s favorite monsters is the star of “20 Million Miles to Earth,” the Ymir, who survives the crash of a spaceship returning from the first human exploration of Venus, and ultimately wreaks havoc on the city of Rome.
In “The 7th Voyage of Sinbad,” the famed sailor and his fiancée, Princess Parisa, land on an island in search of provisions while on their way to Baghdad to be married. On the island, they encounter an evil magician, a genie and many Harryhausen creations including a man-eating Cyclops. This action-packed adventure was Harryhausen’s first Dynamation film in color and is considered one of his best.
