The Movie: Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977)
What Is It?: Ray Harryhausen’s penultimate film may have looked a little old-fashioned in the year that saw the release of a couple of other special-effects-centric fantasy flicks, but all these decades later, his stop-motion baboon, troglodyte, and saber-tooth tiger still have the power to charm. Keep an eye out for Peter Mayhew as the Minoton. He was a busy boy in 1977.
Why Today?: Today begins the phase of the Taurus star sign, which should be of interest to bullish folks like the Minoton.
