Description by OLDIES.com:
To this came Day The Earth Stood Still (1964), played off as a sci-fi film it was actually a fantasy concerning a witch who freezes the world until she gets her evil desires.
Roger Corman, also anxious to participate in the move to color features, acquired a handful of foreign films and assigned the restructuring of them to his assistants who would then create new films for the drive-In market.
Here Francis Ford Coppola has redubbed and recut a Russian film into The Magic Voyage of Sinbad (!962) in an attempt to capitalize on Ray Harryhaussen's popular 7th Voyage Of Sinbad. Coppola's film is full of incredible special effects and lavish settings and should please every fantasy enthusiast.
THE DAY THE EARTH FROZE: An imported Russian-Finnish production that is a spectacular journey through a strange world, this bizarre, surreal fantasy was based on a Finnish fairy tale. It follows Lemminkainen, a blacksmith whose sister has been kidnapped by an evil witch; she wants to force our hero into making her a Sampo, a magic mill that produces gold, flour, and salt, and assures its owner wealth. The witch also steals the sun and freezes the world until her dark wishes are fulfilled.
