Jason and the Argonauts

The legendary Greek hero (Todd Armstrong) leads a team of intrepid adventurers in a perilous quest for the renowned Golden Fleece. Jason assembles a sailing crew of the finest men who are under the protection of Hera (Honor Blackman), queen of the gods. Their voyage includes battles against harpies, a giant bronze Talos, a hydra, and an animated skeleton army, all brought to life by the special-effects wizardry of the late Ray Harryhausen (1920–2013).

Rated G for some intense action sequences.
