The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms

"There was no description in the original script, so I made many different designs for it. I can’t remember what we discarded. He had a round head for a time, but he didn’t look fierce enough. I don’t know where his name came from. People say it’s based on my initials, but I don’t think it is."

I grew up with all the films Ray Harryhausen worked on and they fuelled my fantasies and ambitions. Sadly, I failed to follow in his footsteps, but I've managed to get most of the movies on DVD, and they still entertain and enthral. Maybe it's just a personal thing, but even with the marvels made possible by CGI seem unable to aspire to the same special magic. I think it may have something to do with this observation by the man himself: "I tried to improve on it, but I still admire King Kong because it influenced me enormously. There wasn’t a single superfluous scene in the dialogue or the visuals." More

L: Empire Admin Post your comments on <a href=/features/harryhausen-on-harryhausen><b>t his article</b></a> Ok First thing I saw when I opened up the article is the skeleton figurine and damn I remember that thing. I can't remember what movie though, sinbad maybe or clash of the titans. When you take a look at some of the following pictures you can see it's from the argonauts, I remember that movie with silly nostalgia. That guy really is an artist. More
