Ray Harryhausen's monster archive to be preserved

Museum seeks to give home to the models of Ray Harryhausen, from swordfighting skeletons to a giant squirrel

Over the decades there have been a giant cyclops, terrifying skeletons, an enormous squirrel, the bad-tempered Gwangi* and just about every other dinosaur you can think of. All are the work of special effects guru Ray Harryhausen and his archive will – if all goes to plan – be saved for the nation when it is today announced that the National Media museum (Nmm) is seeking to acquire it.

The museum is working with the Ray and Diana Harryhausen foundation to create a permanent home for a collection of drawings, storyboards and models relating to fantasy monster films generations of children grew up with, from The 7th Voyage of Sinbad in 1958 through 1963's Jason and the Argonauts to the original Clash of the Titans in 1981.
