RAY HARRYHAUSEN (1920-2013)


The world of cinema just got a bit darker today with the passing of Ray Harryhausen.

For generations of non cynical cinegeeks, Harryhausen brought the impossible to life and his work will forever be a celebration of the magic of the movies.

Among his work as a visual effects creator, writer, and producer were the films Mighty Joe Young, The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, It Came from Beneath the Sea, Earth vs. the Flying Saucers, 20 Million Miles to Earth, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, Mysterious Island, Jason and the Argonauts, One Million Years B.C., The Valley of Gwangi, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger and Clash of the Titans.

After the jump check out some truly wonderful examples of his work.
