Jason and the Argonauts
TTodd Armstrong, Nancy Kovak, Gary Raymond, Honor Blackman, Nigel Green, Patrick Troughton, Laurence Naismith, Douglas Wilmer / Fiction / English
Zeus may control the fate of man, but his omnipotence is primitive next to the God Harryhausen!
Grab your fleece! The finest fantasy peplum hits the screens once again, and it has lost none of its vitality. Don Chaffey may be the director, Nigel Green may be the hairiest of the questing Argonauts -but it’s the articulation of Ray Harryhausen’s stop-motion that still mesmerises. Forget Les Quatre cent coups’ freeze-frame ending, Jason’s Hydra’s Teeth skeletons are far more iconic and influential. Just ask Pixar.
