Ray Harryhausen

Stop-motion animation master Ray Harryhausen had died at the age of 92 (1920 – 2013). I am tempted to call all the movies in which he was involved  Harryhausen's movies. Because, I am afraid, that without his skills and imagination those movies wouldn't be remembered at all.

My favourite was "The 7th Voyage Of Sinbad" (1958) and Ray's giant horned cyclops. I was so terrified by those monsters as a kid, that I wanted to watch the movie over and over again. Maybe only one monster was even cooler and more sinister: the invisible monster from Id featured in the "Forbidden planet" movie.
