Sinbad the Sailor (1947)
Sinbad, the Sailor (1947) Poster

**** out of 5

This film's eye-poppingly brilliantly vivid technicolor makes for a colorful adventure story. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. is the title character in the kind of role his father made famous, and comes off fairly well in the comparison, despite some overly demonstrative acting. And with the lovely Maureen O'Hara as the lead actress, entertaining supporting characters like George Tobias, Mike Mazurki and Sheldon Leonard, an entertainingly cunning companion in Walter Slezak, and Anthony Quinn as the villainous adversary, Fairbanks is surrounded by a terrific cast of actors. The story has just enough turns and twists to stay interesting to the finish.
