I saw this as a child and thought it was terrifying, especially the fighting skeletons! As an adult I find it laughable, but that means I'm still enjoying it!
Almost as good as I remember when I saw it in 1964. A good simple adventure story with good special effects.
I think that today's producers could take a leaf or two from this producer's book. Great story and very little down time in the story line, great effects for a late 60's movie. Can't wait to see if the new one is as good.
I'm a fan of Greek Mythology and enjoyed this made for television telemovie, I think the next stage with any of these retelling of Greek Mythology movies is to make them all together so they all fit into the picture and scheme of things to really make people understand the whole real mythology and story of things rather than separate movies - made the same way the current Lord of The Rings trilogy was made and released - to finally complete the whole thing and make it a true masterpiece.
An oldie but a classic. Excellent special effects for its time.
