Science-fiction giants and lifelong friends Ray Harryhausen and Ray Bradbury meet in front of a studio audience to relate anecdotes from their life and work together. Their shared love of dinosaurs led to an appreciation of many early science-fiction films, most notably Willis O'Brien's classic 1925 film "The Lost World". They first met at the age of 18 at Clifton's Cafeteria where meetings of the "Rocket Society" were held. Mr. Bradbury relates how his short story "The Fog Horn" led to John Huston hiring him to write the screenplay for "Moby Dick"; the story also became the inspiration for "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" which Harryhausen animated. Ray Bradbury describes his joy on the night he presented his friend with an honorary Oscar. Mischievous as ever, Bradbury promises to pry up his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and move it next to his dear friend Harryhausen's star. Written by
