Jack The Giant Killer (1962) – By Jason S. Lockard

Movie goers love to take the thrill rides of action and adventure. In the 1950s and 60s people marveled at movies such as The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts. In 1962 Jack The Giant Killer was released to little fanfare. Over 50 years ago! Now thanks to Legend Films you to can relive this classic adventure on DVD.

Jack the Giant Killer follows a farm boy who heroically rescues Princess Elaine from a sorcerer named Pendragon by slaying his bloodthirsty giant. But Pendragon would not stop there Jack must continue on his quest crossing the ocean, battle dragons, fight two-headed ogres and an army of ghouls to save his lady love!

The movie features great stop motion animation, but it was not done by the legendary Ray Harryhausen, but by Jim Danforth. In a world that is inundated with CGI I love seeing the stop motion animation! It is so classy. The DVD features an absolute beautiful copy of this classic film. Sadly no bonus features are found, but movie lovers will be ecstatic with the film.

So if you love adventure films of yesteryear as much as me this is one you have to own. Head over to www.LegendFilms.com and pick up a copy today!
