Happy Birthday, Ray Harryhausen!
Today marks the 89th birthday of legendary stop motion animator and special effects man, Ray Harryhausen. He has entertained millions, created happy childhood memories for just as many, inspired generations of special effects artists, and created some of the best creatures ever to grace the silver screen.
His body of work includes "Mighty Joe Young" (1949), "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" (1958) , "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" (1953) , "One Million Years B.C." (1966) , "Clash of the Titans" (1981) and "Jason and the Argonauts" (1963) .
I can't thank him enough.
