A very good introduction to stop-motion and Ray Harryhausen
20 June 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This interview documentary, looks at Ray Harryhausen's collective work.

He talks about his films, and stop-motion animation. It narrates about his style of animation and some of the effects he created. If you want to know a lot more about his work, this is a very good place to start.
