Like Me, in less than perfect condition.

Here is another story from the Arabian Nights, this time the less popular (at least in panto terms) of Sinbad the Sailor. Although in this case the slides seem to have been a victim of their own success. The muddy ring in the back of the image is not a mist or sludge, but rather damage from prolonged exposure to the heat of the lamp. Unfortunately all the slides in this series have suffered in the same way and are in no condition to compete with Harryhausen’s versions of the story anymore but are still interesting in their own right, if only as a curio to hear what was once a very popular story.
