Director: Don Chaffey

Writers: Jan Read; Beverley Cross

From poem: The Argonautica by Apollonios Rhodios

Keywords: Fantasy/Action

Usurped of his rightful title, Greek mythological hero Jason braves the seas in a quest for the Golden Fleece, which possesses magical powers that would prove useful in reclaiming the Kingdom of Thessaly. Stop-motion animation by Ray Harryhausen, who considered this his best work. Bernard Herrmann's score is excellent; the dialog and acting, significantly less so.
