Synopsis

Creaking skeletons armed with huge swords who rise out of the ground ready to fight - that, in a nutshell, is why people remember this film. It's based on the Greek myth of the hero sent on a supposedly doomed voyage to retrieve the Golden Fleece. The adventures of the Argonauts, who face endless danger along the way, come to life because of the genius stop-motion creatures created by effects maestro Ray Harryhausen - which, as well as the skeletons, also include the many-headed Hydra, winged Harpies and the bronze giant Talos.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
