By the Gods!

Caroline Munro and John Phillip Law in THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD (1973)

How many PEPLUM movies can you name off the top of your head that have the word GOLDEN in their titles? There is a good number of them.

Although your definition of a peplum film is far broader than mine, here are a few titles that I can think of
that you would probably consider to fall into that category: The Golden Horde, The Golden Arrow, The Golden Hawk, The Golden Blade, Treasure of the Golden Condor.

Excellent! There are a couple of additional titles but yeah those are the most famous ones.

THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD is the best of the many Sinbad movies in my view.

Caroline Munro was very cute in her Arabian clothes. John Phillip Law was perfect as the male lead.

SINBAD THE SAILOR (1947) is my second choice. However, it verges into campyness a bit too much for my taste.

One scene that always gets a giggle out of me (though I've seen the movie a gazillion times) is when Sinbad talks about something being as difficult as juggling two melons with one hand and in walks Caroline Munro with the deepest cleavage in Arabia.

I agree with Richard, it's a hilarious scene and I'm sure it was intended. Miss Munro never looked better and GVOS is near the top of my list of favorite Harryhausen films.
