Some of my fondest childhood memories involve watching Harryhausen movies with my dad. My lifelong fascination with special effects began with The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and Harryhausen’s cyclops. As a kid, he blew my mind, and that was before I knew how much work went into what we got to see onscreen.
Harryhausen’s impact on the film industry, and special effects in particular, is almost immeasurable. He inspired generations of filmmakers, and his films still stand up todfay as technical marvels.
He will be missed, greatly.
