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.

Not to be confused with the [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 MST3K]]-featured ''The Magic Voyage of Sinbad'' (actually the film ''{{Film/Sadko}}'').

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.

* NeutralFemale: Margiana, so much
* OccultBlueEyes / CreepyBlueEyes: Koura has strangely-coloured, unearthly blue eyes that receive a lot of camera and colour-contrast attention whenever he uses his magic. 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.

Added DiffLines:

* OurHomunculiAreDifferent: Koura creates two of them. These flying imps are an extension of their creator's senses of sound and sight.

* EvilIsHammy: Sinbad's crew lives in a world of DullSurprise and {{Eye Take}}s. Koura is a universe unto himself of ChewingTheScenery, the EvilLaugh, wailing, trembling, moaning magic words in an ecstatic sort of way and shouting people's names really loudly.

* VillainsActHerosReact: The second half of the movie is just Koura overdoing the magic and variously attacking Sinbad's crew with possessed statues, magic exploding temples, green-skinned savages and so on, hoovering up the PlotCoupons as he goes. The only thing Sinbad's crew is really capable of is fighting off whatever he throws at them and chasing after him.

* CreepyCute: The bat-homunculus. It's a tiny little demon that seems scared of everything, communicates in adorable little chirps and Koura looks at it with clear affection, clucking at it to lure it onto his arm like it was a pet. Of course it's also a hostile creature created from his own blood...
