The Golden Voyage Of Harryhausen!
It's with great sorrow I read of the passing of Ray Harryhausen. In these modern days awash with fantasy in cinema, print, and all manner of other media, it's difficult to remember those halcyon days when a Harryhausen movie was a rare trek into the fantastic and utterly awesome. It was his time-tested techniques which at once transported and connected the viewer to things before only describe in print or seen in static artwork. Harryhausen made it live, and live it has, lingering in the memory and for all time on the screen both large and small. Thanks Ray. Rest in peace.
And now for some of Harryhausen's best. It's time to break out the collection and give them another viewing.
