This is Ray Harryhausen if reading this i am sure he was your hero too. He made the monsters the star which is the coolest thing in the world. Ray Harryhausen is A childhood hero of mine. I can say that i have been obsessed with his work snice i was a boy. His monsters had more personality then me as a boy but it was truly magical when i frist saw his movies i was in awe and wonder. it showed me that one man can make such wonders. I knew these monsters were not real but they touched my heart. it is still so true to my heart because i seen them when i was a boy and not know how how they were done. I remember many as boy saying they were not real but i didn’t care. I seen many things that passed in such effects but i never could get over how amazing this guys truly stands out. Ray Harryhausen truly is the greatest artist of special effects. One of the my true heroes to my heart. thank you ray for teaching me to let my imagination soar and showing what magic can be,thanks sir please join to honor this great hero as he truly is one of my heroes.

    When I saw ‘The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad’ in the theaters, there was a little applause for Ray Harryhausen’s name during the opening credits – not much but there should be more. Wikipedia states ‘It took Ray Harryhausen 11 months to complete the full color, widescreen stop-motion animation sequences for The 7th Voyage of Sinbad. Harryhausen’s “Dynamation” label was used for the first time on this film’.

        It is amazing, captivating and fun – I quite liked the music, by Bernard Herrmann – have the ~7+minute version as an MP3 as it captivated – and all of Ray Harryhausen’s work in it’s marvelous, eliciting word such as “look at that”, “check that out” and bringing a sense of wonder and a smile and suspense to your countenance – it’s like he helped bring to life your imagination …

    Just saw a link to this. By strange coincidence I’m doing a double feature of two Ray Harryhausen classics (“The Golden Voyage of Sinbad” and “Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger”) for Moon in Gemini’s “Swords and Sandals Blogathon” this weekend. If you don’t mind sharing the stage with her, I’d be happy to link your blogathon to the same post.

    A perfect choice for a blogathon! Could you put me down for The Golden Voyage of Sinbad? I also wrote an article about Ray Harryhausen a few years ago that I would like to re-post, if it is allowed. Thanks!

    I didn’t see a yes or no to my previous post. Would you like to share the stage with Moon over Gemini, since I am posting a double feature for her Swords and Sandals blogathon which is also two Harryhausen movies (see above)?

      • Quiggy says:

        I’m not sure I understood all of that. But, my thinking was this: Moon in Gemini’s blogathon is July 8th-10th, and yours is July 10th-15th. If I wait and post on Sunday the 10th I can catch the tail end of hers and the beginning of yours. And I can write it in such a way that it fulfills both themes. OK?
