Ray Harryhausen, June 29, 1920 – May 7, 2013

Everyone in the movie theater knew Ray’s creatures were animated miniatures filmed one frame at a time, but they were magic. I am still more engaged by Harryhausen’s beasties than all the whiz-bang cgi effects and slow motion kung fu mayhem of today’s blu-ray distopia.
