* AdaptationalAttractiveness: A pretty unique inversion. In mythology, Atalanta was an AmazonianBeauty with beautiful blonde hair that had suitors lining up for her. Here she is portrayed as a rather plain tomboy.

->''"Some people say ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'' or ''Film/CitizenKane''... I say ''Jason and the Argonauts'' is the greatest film ever made!"''

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalUgliness: Greek mythology describes the huntress Atalanta as a gorgeous blonde with AmazonianBeauty and endless suitors. However, the film portrays her as a plain {{Tomboy}} so much so that Jason refers to their relationship as a '''brotherly''' one (he clearly thinks of her as a man rather than a woman). Though despite this, Atalanta does attract one man in the course of the film.

Added DiffLines:

* SequelHook: The film ends with the Argonauts having successfully acquired the Golden Fleece, but doesn't show Jason's return to overthrow Pelias. The sequel didn't happen most likely because what follows is in no way akin to an adventure story but falls into pure {{tragedy}}, as shown in the play ''Theatre/{{Medea}}'' and its adaptations.

There was another movie made in 2000 produced by Hallmark with the same title that followed the original myth more closely, its ending aside. Many fans of the Harryhausen movie often mistake the Hallmark version for a remake of it despite them both being based on the same myth and having virtually nothing in common apart from the titles.
