Retro Review 1981: Clash of the Titans

Clash of the Titans (Original Release Date: 12 June 1981)

The original Clash of the Titans has gotten some attention thanks to last year's remake.  I guess that's cool, but I don't know how capable it is of making new fans.  I can see people new to it liking it for what they feel to be kitsch.  Looking at it as an adult, I can also imagine its original audience seeing it as kitsch.  Harryhausen's old-school approach to stop-motion looks creaky in comparison to the "go motion" developed by Phil Tippett for Empire Strikes Back, so it might have been a tough sell even then. 

It looks a little creaky in comparison to the best of earlier Harryhausen, too, so that doesn't help matters.  The Rotoscoping is more apparent than it is in The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts.  Shading mismatches, »
