Amazing short film that took 50 years to finish...
14 June 2003 | by (West Coast) – See all my reviews

I was priveliged to see the premiere of Ray Harryhausen's film, The Tortoise and the Hare" at the Egyptian Theatre in Los Angeles. The film was amazing, the audience was very positive and amazing as well. Mr. Harryhausen was present in the theatre for a Q & A which was also a special privelige.

This short film he had started in the 1950's, but never finished because he was off pursuing more lucrative jobs in the movies. His words exactly and much to our (the fans) benefits.

It was an epic evening. Starting with a viewing of "Jason and the Argonauts" and ending with "Clash of the Titans". All Ray Harryhausen classics.

"The Tortoise and the Hare" is a good time for children and adults alike. Mr. Harryhausen turns a classic story and makes it his own with his own special way of special effects and telling of a story. I highly recommend it if you have a chance to view it.
