[Discussing The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (Juran 1958)] “The reason it changed my life, and it really did-I had complete suspension of disbelief. Really, I was eight years old, and it transported me. I was on that beach running from that dragon, fighting that Cyclops. It just really dazzled me and I bought it completely. All my energy and efforts were to be a filmmaker, and it was because of that film.” –John Landis
