    Stop motion special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen just died. I had a great deal of joy growing up and watching cheesy but compelling monsters and other creatures designed and filmed by him.

    Maybe you've seen some of the movies he did. Here's a filmography: Ray Harryhausen | The Official Website

    Much appreciated, Ray. Rest in peace.

    Growing up, Saturday afternoon was pretty much Ray Harryhausen time.

    I have some extremely vague memories of playing with some "Voyage of Sinbad" Viewmaster reels. I'll have to take a look and see if they are still at parents house.
