This double DVD set of Harryhausen's early work is a great collection. DVD 1 gives us all of Ray's fairy tales, including the recently completed TORTOISE AND THE HARE, and all have been restored (both in terms of picture quality and, in some cases, length), allowing us to see the complete versions of each short, with richer detail and color than ever before. In addition, we are also treated to early animation tests and experiments (some never before shown to the public). DVD 2 contains interviews, stills and art gallery, a reunion of Ray's Harryhausen & Bradbury, along with Forrest J. Ackerman, and footage showing Ray receiving his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All in all, about 4 hours of material for stop-motion fans. Now if only someone would release the 1986 Harryhausen documentary ALIENS, DRAGONS, MONSTERS & ME.
