The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958)

January 5th, 2009 by Anne Richardson · No Comments · 1950's, Oregon film, Oregon film new definition, Oregon writer

Strange but true: Kenneth Kolb, born Portland, Oregon in 1926, wrote the screenplay for Ray “Harry” Harryhousen’s masterpiece, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, a film cited by Henry Selick (and many, many others) as inspiring him to enter the field of stop motion animation.

Kolb’s other movie credit: he wrote the novel Getting Straight, which was adapted for the big screen in 1970.

I hereby claim The 7th Voyage of Sinbad as an Oregon film on the basis of the contribution made by Oregon born and raised screenwriter Ken Kolb.
