A Memory: Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger

This is one movie that stuck with me from way back in my youth. Action, adventure, good vs. evil, epic battles--it caught and held my imagination.

If I had any artistic ability, I'd probably have drawn and painted such scenes. Instead, such adventures sparked my imagination to write.

Below is the final scene to Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger. The climactic battle (between the Trog and the Sabre-Toothed Tiger) begins about 4 minutes in.

Does anyone else remember this? Sure, the special effects may be better now--but this stuck with me more than most of the fancier things of today.


  1. No, I haven't seen it, but I love those movies that really spark the imagination and make me want to write something.

  2. If you ever stumble across it, Angie, give it a try--see if it sparks any new writing ideas.
