retro trailer: ‘Jason and the Argonauts’

Take a look back at an old trailer…

There’s a new blu-ray edition of this just out in Region 1 [Amazon U.S.] [Amazon Canada]. Not that I have a blu-ray player, but seeing it in the new-release listings made remember this movie fondly. I haven’t seen it since I was a kid, when I would devour the Channel 9 Saturday afternoon movies — man, those warrior skeletons both terrified me and thrilled me. It’s movies like this — as well as the magic of Ray Harryhausen — that made me fall in love with movies in the first place.

It’s also available on regular DVD; see links below. Maybe I’ll be able to find some time to stream this from Netflix this week — I’d love to see it again…

Jason and the Argonauts is available on DVD in Region 1 from Amazon.com and from Amazon.ca, and in Region 2 from Amazon U.K.

    Jason was the first domino. This is the movie that opened my mind to fantastic fiction! I was 3 years old when I first saw it. I later read all the mythology stories I got my hands on and then next saw Sinbad voyage movies, then read Marco Polo stories…

    The skeletons. I can tell you that in my previous life I was a bouncer or security on a goth club and the moment you put Ray Harryhausen’s skeletons on the tv, the world would stop because everyone would be in awe. The artistry, the skill, the jaw dropping effects would make everyone stop in their tracks. These special affects by Harryhausen had more heart than anything that you see nowadays. You knew that they were false, but they were still awesome and jawdropping. They ceased to be a part of the film, and became a work of art.
    These works of beauty amazed everyone. And I still think they do.

    I remember re-watching this after hearing that Patrick Troughton was in it.
