Here's a nice obituary, featuring film clips and an interview I'd never before seen:

After shooting was completed in Granada, and along the Costa Brava in Spain, production on THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD moved to a London studio where it took six months to complete the process work of Dynamation.

Unlike THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD, which combined animation with live action, THE 3 WORLDS OF GULLIVER used all live action. The visual effects were produced by the use of perspective, inlay photography, optical variation, and split screen. Harryhausen would use as many as five strips of film to create a visual sequence, blending them together to obtain a single visual effect. For the film, Harryhausen used more than 200 trick photographic shots and spent five months processing the visual effects in the laboratory following the conclusion of principal photography.

ONE MILLION YEARS B.C., made for Hammer Films, was advertised as being filmed in "PanaMation," perhaps because the term "Dynamation" was reserved for the films that Harryhausen made with producer Charles H. Schneer.

For one sequence in 1970's TROG, Warner Bros. used Harryhausen's and Willis' special effects footage from the 1956 production THE ANIMAL WORLD.

I believe that same footage from Harryhausen's Animal World was also used in the Matthew Broderick flick, War Games.

CLASH OF THE TITANS was the only Harryhausen film that I saw first-run in the theater. I just watched it again on video a few weeks ago.

I was ten years old when my dad took me to see Jason And The Argonauts, and I was never the same after that. I'm 60 now, and I still adore Ray's work. I had the pleasure of meeting him, Charles Schneer and Beverley Cross over Memorial Day weekend in 1977.
The man lived his dreams, shared those dreams with the world, and inspired generations of young dreamers to do the same. He will always be an inspiration to me.



We really must see "THAT" picture again Chris, you know exactly which one I speak of. cool

i WONDER ABOUT FUTURE GENERATIONS OF FANS.
will they appreciate his work?

I think most Harryhausen fans on this board GREW UP with the films, most likely seeing them first on the tele .
We didn't watch them with a 'critical' eye - we just let ourselves be carried away by the fantasy.
However, as Manderley so wisely pointed out, the process work (i.e. rear projection) was not up to snuff. Today's audience might appreciate the stop-motion but rebel,against the less than stellar opticals.

Or, will they?
I dunno.

who does?

Hey Timmer!
I've got no scanner, and I am totally non-techie.
I tried taking a shot of the photo with my digital camera. It looks pretty good, but I can't figure out how to get it from my iPhoto to here...

And that's something I've never done.

Surely someone here can help?

NAAAAH, Octoberman.
Timmer wants me to post the photo of me (at age 24) shaking Ray Harryhausen's hand.

I suspect Octoberman would have preferred a hands-on picture of Caroline Monro wink
