    Hi,

    I remember seeing an adventure movie when I was very young. The movie probably has been made in the 60s. As I recall, its a "quest movie" where the party must travel to somekind of dark tower to find the treasure. Along the way, they face multiple danger (like alligators (I think)). The only thing I really remember is that when they reach the tower, there's a booby trap inside that is a big fist coming down on them.

    Wow! Pretty vague! Do you have any idea what I'm talking about?

    I remember it well. The film is Captain Sinbad (1963) starring Guy Williams (of Lost in Space and Disney's Zorro). The villain, El Karim, cannot be killed, because his heart has been placed in the tower and protected by magic. The giant hand is the last guardian of the heart. There's a great moment, after the hand first falls on them, when it rises up and wags it finger at Sinbad as if to say, "Shame, shame!"

    Obviously it made an impression on me.

    Michael,

    it's probably Captain Sinbad. Is it available on dvd?

    I don't think so. I'm not even sure it's ever been released on home video in any format.
