United Kingdom, United States | 1963 | Don Chaffeyu
The great stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen (1920-2013), who appeared in person at the Cinematheque in 1993 (thanks to the efforts of longtime local fan David Massaro), died in May—but not before inspiring a whole new generation of FX wizards. Most experts (and the master himself) regard this 1963 adventure fantasy as his greatest achievement. The mythic tale of an ancient Greek hero’s voyage to find the Golden Fleece allowed Harryhausen to realize some of his most fantastic creations—from Harpies and a Hydra to an army of skeleton warriors. Music by Bernard Herrmann.
