Crypt Lord Nugget #3: Look Into The Eyes Of Tom Baker........

Last night I watched the Golden Voyage of Sinbad.  It opens with them at sea.  A mysterious winged creature hovers above the ship.  One guy says it's a "seagull", even though it's black, leathery and has bat wings.  (There is one in every crew).   Somebody shoots an arrow and it drops a golden goodie onto the deck.  Another crewman says "it's cursed", but Sinbad quickly picks it up and beholds a vision of a sorceress and beautiful girl with (a badly) painted eye on her palm.  Sinbad immediately tells the crew they are going to solve the riddle of this mystery.  All this in the first 4 minutes!  Quickly enough they meet the evil Koura, a man in a golden mask, a lazy boy and slave girl. 
Oh yes!  Sinbad never thinks to check for traps, he just moves forward through the door...sword in hand.  He catches up to Koura in a temple lit by colored lights and challenges him.  Koura throws his sword to Shiva, who sprouts a sword in each hand and attacks in Koura's place.  There is no explanation....Sinbad hurls himself into the fight even though it is pretty clear he has no idea just how he will defeat such a formidable foe.  Bravo!  The hungry maw of doom widens!  GO!
