Jason and the Argonauts

Rated G 104 minutes 1963

Special-effects buffs generally cite this 1963 effort by Ray Harryhausen as the master's masterpiece, and his work does a great deal to enliven the tired plot and vacuous stars (Todd Armstrong, Nancy Kovack). Buff interest of a different sort is provided by Bernard Herrmann's score, one of his finest. Donald Chaffey directed.
