Product Details

The Magic Voyage of Sinbad is the American release title for Sadko, a 1952 Russian fantasy film. Based on the Rimsky-Korsakov opera of the same name, the film details the efforts of seafaring Sadko (Sergei Stolyarov) to rescue the citizens of Covason from their despotic rulers. To do this, he must seek and capture the fabled Bluebird of Happiness (aka The Phoenix). Alexander Ptushko is credited with the direction on Sadko, though James Landis is cited in some sources as director; in fact, Landis oversaw the recutting and redubbing of the American version, which was distributed in 1962. The scripter for the revamped Magic Voyage of Sinbad was Francis Ford Coppola.

Day the Earth Froze (aka Sampo)
This fantasy is based upon a Finnish epic poem Kalevala. It tells the tale of a magical mill that produces grain, salt, and gold for a mythical land. A witch queen covets the mill, but her plan for getting it is thwarted by a daring hero. Enraged, the witch steals the sun. As a result, everything in the land is frozen beneath a blanket of snow and ice.
