Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan – Coming to Blu-ray Disc & DVD from Arrow US

AF002

Before CGI, there was Ray Harryhausen, the master of special visual effects.

A pioneer in the field, Mr. Harryhausen’s impact on motion pictures is monumental.  His memorable work in films such as Jason and The Argonauts, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and the 1981 Clash of the Titans, just to name a few, have stood the test of time and are still exciting to watch in this day-and-age of photo realistic computer generated effects.
