Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977)

Like Star Wars, Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger was released in the year I was born. Apart from some great effects from maestro Ray Harryhausen, this is a pretty average film - entertaining yes, but containing some truly awful dialogue and acting ( Margaret Whiting as the witch Zenobia wins the bad acting contest, but it's marginal...)

The cast is of interest for having both John Wayne's son Patrick and Tyrone Power's daughter Taryn in it, along with a fun Patrick Troughton and scantily clad Jane Seymour. Not a great movie by any means, but quite a lot of fun.
