Jason and the Argonauts

  • Directed by Don Chaffey
  • United Kingdom/United States, 1963, 104 mins.

Greek hero Jason (Todd Armstrong) and the crew of the Argo set out to recover the legendary Golden Fleece in this mythological Greek epic brought to life by stop-motion master Ray Harryhausen’s inventive special effects and a stirring score by Bernard Herrmann. “Another Harryhausen animated masterpiece. Only Sinbad [also showing May 19] has as many great scenes. . . Jason encounters purple-winged harpies, Triton the merman, a seven-headed hydra whose teeth turn into amazing skeleton warriors, and the bronze giant Talos. A classic fantasy.”—The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film
