THE MAGIC SERPENT—Widescreen Edition (1966) Hiroki Matsukata, Tomoko Ogawa, Ryutaro Otomo. In ancient Japan, a good lord is killed and his throne is taken by a treacherous lord and his sorcerer pal. Years later, a young prince embarks on a quest to avenge the deaths of the murder victims: his parents, as well as a good wizard who had once saved his life. An epic battle soon ensues between the prince and the sorcerer. Cool. This is a beautiful production and there are enough giant monsters to make anyone happy, including a dragon and a giant frog! The climactic monster battle is rollicking and great fun. In English. Color, Widescreen, 35mm.
