By the God!

The Hydra beast in CAPTAIN SINDBAD (1963)

This is a peculiar adventure movie directed by the excellent Byron Haskin (note the spelling of Sinbad). It was shot in Germany and stars Guy Williams. The full scale special effects is cool and also funny. The visual effects are credited to Tom Howard but it's hard to figure out if he was only responsible for optical effects and not practical effects. Regardless, it's my favourite thing from this movie. I need to do a list of movies featuring the Hydra.

Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion Hydra in "Jason and the Argonauts" was much better!
