      You can check the storyline at imdb, but it’s kind of a Lord Of The Rings of that era, in that it’s a quest by heroes to attain a goal for good. In this case it’s the Golden Fleece, and our heroes are being used as pawns by “The Gods” along the way. Great entertainment imo, no cgi, but excellent stop motion fx by the legendary Ray Harryhausen. Just a fun ride, no special social significance or anything… Hope that helps!

      The Thief of Baghdad from 1940 is right up your alley, and is a very cool movie.
      All of the Sinbad movies (with claymation by Ray Harryhausen)
      also the old Jason and the Argonauts, also with claymation by Ray Harryhausen.

    Looking For A Book About Dinosaurs In Film? Looking for a book that covers the topic of various dinosaurs in films. I remember it had a red cover, and included info on the old stop-motion films like the lost world, the beast from 20,000 fathoms, and even godzilla. I can’t recall what it’s named, but I am trying to find out.
