The Caroline Munro Archive: Sinbad and the Pirate Princess

by John Scoleri


I'm back with another artifact from my Caroline Munro archive; a continuing series on bare•bones. You can check out the previous installments here.

This time out, I wanted to showcase a more recent piece of Munro memorabilia - a CD release of an audio adventure in the spirit of classic radio shows. Caroline provides the voice of Junah, the pirate princess of the title. Fellow Hammer star Martine Beswicke also appears in this Sinbad story written, produced and directed by Mark Redfield.

While it doesn't compare to the Harryhausen films that thrust Sinbad into the public's consciousness, Caroline's performance makes it an enjoyable 75-minute excursion for her fans. It's a keen reminder what a disappointment it was how often her work was dubbed (The Spy Who Loved Me, Starcrash, etc.).

The program is on one CD in an illustrated gatefold cover featuring art by Mark Maddox. Inside the gatefold are several photographs of Caroline and Martine recording their lines.

The disc is now available to order through Amazon

John, how about a little more background on this project? The CD cover says it came out this year.
