Jason and the Argonauts Review


The legendary Greek hero leads a team of intrepid adventurers in a perilous quest for the legendary Golden Fleece.

Fantastic special effects by Ray Harryhausen and exciting mythological adventure make this a film that is fun for everyone. It is the story of Jason (Todd Armstrong) a fearless sailor and explorer who returns to the kingdom of Thessaly after a 20-year voyage to make his rightful claim to the throne. But to do so Jason must first find the magical Golden Fleece. He selects a crew and with the help of Hera Queen of the Gods sets sail in search of the Fleece. Jason and his crew must overcome incredible obstacles including a 100-foot bronze giant the venomous Hydra--a huge creature with the heads of seven snakes--and a spectacular battle with an army of skeletons.Starring: Todd Armstrong Nancy Kovack Gary Raymond Laurence Naismith Niall MacGinnisDirector: Don ChaffeyCopyright: 1963 Columbia Pictures Produced by Ray Harryhausen; written by Beverley Cross & Jan Read; Running time of 104 minutes; Closed Captioned.
