By the Gods!

Sinbad (Patrick Wayne) looks out to a splendid city in SINBAD & THE EYE OF THE TIGER (1977)

This appears to be a standard matte painting, even though Ray Harryhausen productions were never too keen in using this kind of special effect technique, usually opting for the use of models and forced perspective instead (model is in the foreground). I always like these scenes because they give a sense of placement to the story.  I also like Patrick Wayne as Sinbad in this film. His characterization was more in style with the old Sinbad, which I prefer, even if the acting, from Wayne or the entire cast was pretty uninspired.

Hi. This is actually a miniature of the city of Charak, matted into the shot.
