Ray Harryhausen, special effects guru and filmmaker has died in Lomdon aged 92

I remember watching loads of his film, part of a tradition going back to the early days of cinema.

 

A sad day, but lots of memorable movies.

Yeah, I heard that on the news. What a shame, but we are all not long for this earth and he was 92 so at least he had a lotta years and he had an incredible career and was the greatest physical animator in film history. If I leave a legacy like that, I'll have fulfilled my life's purpose. I'm sure he knew how important his contribution to the industry he served and loved.

What's amazing is that for many of those films, he mostly worked alone creating those effects.
