The Magic Voyage of Sinbad (1952)

The film was released in the United States in 1962 in an English-dubbed and modified form by Roger Corman’s Filmgroup under the title The Magic Voyage of Sinbad (the original version of the film does have a slight connection to Sindbad the Sailor since Rimsky-Korsakov’s symphonic suite Scheherazade incorporates elements of Sindbad stories). The Magic Voyage of Sinbad retains the basic plot structure of Sadko but includes several significant changes: the total running time is reduced from approximately 85 to 79 minutes (most of the deleted footage consists of scenes in which songs are performed), voice-over narration is added, the protagonist “Sadko” is renamed “Sinbad,” and characters and places are renamed to disguise the film’s Russian origin and transform the film into a story about Sindbad the Sailor (perhaps most significantly, the city of Novgorod is renamed “Copasand”).
