RAY HARRYHAUSEN ( 1920 – 2013 )

When I was young, most kids did NOT know who directed their favorite movies. But, they DID know the names of the special-effects folks, and Ray Harryhausen's name was probably the most famous.

I still remember the first time I saw JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, and how thrilled I was.

Ray Harryhausen's work was legendary, and he will be missed.....

Quotes from the LOS ANGELES TIMES.....

"Ray Harryhausen, special-effects legend, dies at 92"

"Ray Harryhausen pioneered stop-motion animation, creating classics such as 'The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms,' and 'The 7th Voyage of Sinbad.' Without his work, 'there never would have been a "Star Wars" or a "Jurassic Park,''' Steven Spielberg said"
