* GoodScarsEvilScars: The Grand Vizier (who, as mentioned above, is a good guy, unusual for these sorts of stories) had his entire face burned off thanks to the mischief of Prince Koura, and so now wears a golden mask.

Played up with copious {{Eyedscreen}} and some truly stunning {{Idiosyncratic Wipe}}s where the scene transitions from a shot of his face ''around'' his eyes, leaving them staring disembodied over the emerging scene for a very unsettling effect.

*** For that matter, what happened to the (unnamed) other men in Sinbad's island expedition? They apparently disappeared right after the battle with Kali. One of them did get injured in the battle, but it was uncertain whether or not it was fatal. As for the others, were they captured like their comrades by the Lemurians but failed to escape? If so, what was their fate?

SinbadTheSailor searches for the lost continent of Lemuria with the help of his trusty crew along with the disfigured Grand Vizier of Marabia and the perpetually under-dressed ex-slavegirl Margiana. Along the way they will battle the evil sorcerer Prince Koura and encounter fantastic creatures such as the griffin and -in the film's most technically stunning moment -- a six-armed statue of Kali brought to life through Koura's magic.

With special effects by Creator/RayHarryhausen and a musical score by MiklosRozsa (who also scored the 1940 version of ''Film/TheThiefOfBagdad'') ''The Golden Voyage of Sinbad'' is definitely an enjoyable experience -- they don't make 'em like this anymore.

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Sinbad's RagtagBunchOfMisfits are all conventionally gorgeous [[PrettyBoy young men]] and [[MsFanservice women]], except for the character whose disfigurement is part of the plot (and even he hides his face under a beautifully-designed metal mask except for one significant scene). Koura has a striking but not remotely pretty appearence, with CreepyBlueEyes and a huge, hooked nose, and becomes visibly older and uglier (with crackled skin and red-rimmed eyes) from the effects of his magic overuse. His allies consist of sailors with more asymmetrical faces than Sinbad's crew, heavily painted tribespeople, and monsters.

* BishounenLine: Koura starts off middle-aged, becomes increasingly elderly and twisted-looking as he starts throwing around more and more magic power, and then finally becomes younger looking than we've yet seen him for the final confrontation. Shortly followed by turning invisible, which may be considered a further increase in prettiness depending on your opinion of Tom Baker's appearence.
