Thank you, Ray Harryhausen

Harryhausen posing one of his skeletons

Sad news at the passing of Ray Harryhausen, the visionary stop-motion special effects wizard.

I remember his creations vividly from my childhood; Medusa, Calibos, Kali, and the Cyclops, but it was his skeleton army in Jason and the Argonauts, born of scattered Hydra’s teeth, that really caught my imagination, and were probably root cause for a number of sleepless nights.

Thanks for the visions Ray, a true imagineer.
