This documentary came with the 20 Million Miles to Earth DVD. It alone is worth the price. If you're a fan of Ray Harryhausen, you should run, not walk, to the store to buy this. An hour documentary on the work of Ray Harryhausen, it's truly a fascinating look at his career. Although I would have loved to see more details of each of the films, just looking at the original models and hearing Ray talk about some of the issues (like the phone ringing in the middle of his working on Medusa for Clash of the Titans, then coming back and forgetting which snake head went which direction) was awesome. I didn't know that he and Ray Bradbury was such great friends. My favorite part of the whole film, though, was seeing Tom Hanks pronounce "Some people say Casablanca or Citizen Kane is the greatest film of all time. I say Jason and the Argonauts." Excellent.
