The $3 million film has a workable scenario and has been directed resourcefully and spiritedly by Don Chaffey, under whose leadership a colorful cast performs with zeal.

What comes to mind immediately with a mere mention of this Greek myth are Ray Harryhausen's special effects, especially those swashbuckling skeletons
