Did You Know?
There's a strange quality in stop-motion photography, like in King Kong
(1933), that adds to the fantasy. If you make things too real, sometimes you bring it down to the mundane.
As a teenager in his native Los Angeles, Harryhausen joined a science-fiction club. It was there that he met two men who would become lifelong friends: Ray Bradbury
and Forrest J. Ackerman
Famous for his imaginative stop-motion special effects which are showcased in fantasy films depicting Greek Mythological and Arabian Nights stories.
