"Ray Harryhausen"
(1920-2013) R.I.P.

My Tribute to Ray here: my.spill.com/profiles/blogs/ra…

My IMDb poll:
"How old were you when you saw your 1st Ray Harryhausen movie?
Which one was it?" (Here) --> www.imdb.com/name/nm0366063/bo…

My rendition of a personal hero (I had the honor of meeting).
Stop-Motion Animation Legend & Oscar Winner:
Mr. Ray Harryhausen

Ray is surrounded by his film creations: (L to R)

Ceratosaurus from "One Million Years B.C." (1966)

Cyclops from "The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" (1958)

& Rhedosaurus from "The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms" (1953)

***Note to all you fellow Dino-Geeks & fan's of Ray***
I chose these 3 creations because:

Ceratosaurus is "my" favorite dinosaur, prob. because it was
the 1st dinosaur I ever laid eyes on (Cover illus. from the book)
"Dinosaurs and More Dinosaurs"

The "Rhedosaurus" was the 1st Harryhausen film I ever saw,
(on an old black & white tube TV with rabbit ears) at age 7.
*Seeing Harryhausen's prehistoric leviathan released from
it's snowy tomb made SUCH an impression on me!*

& the Cyclops ... well it's The CYCLOPS!
*arguably the most iconic of Ray's many creations*
"The 7th Voyage of Sinbad" made such an impact, that
I named my son after the actor who portrayed, Sokurah.
