I Could Listen To Ray Harryhausen Talk About His Work For Hours...


I love learning a little bit more about the magical world of Ray Harryhausen and his stop motion creations.  This interview is from 1974 and takes a look into the creation of such iconic creatures as Kali from The Seven Voyages of Sinbad, the Hydra from Jason & the Argonauts, and the Alosaurus from 1 Million Years BC. But the highlight of the interview has to be the big reveal that Harryhausen created a claymation Raquel Welch for 1 Million Years BC as well, and the cool way he handles the claymation creatures when explaining how his crew achieves movement with the still life monsters. A great flashback to a time when Hollywood was truly making magic WITHOUT computers. Check out the video after the jump....





The interview came to me courtesy of /Film, Dangerous Minds, and Youtube user Nancy M.
