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.

The stories of both films revolve around the hero Jason, rightful heir to the throne of Iolcus (Thessaly, in the 60s film), whose throne was usurped from his father by EvilUncle Pelias. Pelias offers to give Jason the throne if he sails to the end of the world to claim the Golden Fleece, something which many have tried but failed. Jason gathers a BadassCrew including [[WorldsStrongestMan Hercules]] and other Greek heroes, and sets sail aboard the ship ''Argo''. Together, the Argonauts encounter all sorts of adventures along the way. Jason's love interest in the both films is Medea, a temple dancer in the 60s film and a sorceress in the Hallmark version, and the gods Zeus and Hera play roles in the story as well.
