Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!
I hope you guys know why all last week my BTS pics were so Spielberg-centric. In anticipation of posting the big interview today I planned to have a sweet Ray Harryhausen pic, since he’s such a big part of the chat, and… well, do I need a reason to celebrate the awesomeness that is Ray Harryhausen?
Hell no, I don’t! The man’s a legend and also one of the most humble, sweetest dudes you’ll ever have the pleasure of meeting. I’ve never gotten to spend any real time with him, but I’ve briefly talked to him two or three times and it was always a pleasure.
The 7th Voyage of Sinbad is arguably his best fantasy work. I say arguably because I get in moods when Clash of the Titans can’t be beat and then it’s Jason and the Argonauts… and then I start comparing his fantasy stuff to his sci-fi stuff and we all know 20 Million Miles To Earth is the best… or is it It Came From Beneath the Sea? I think Ymir wins…
Anyway, here’s the master at work on that pissed off chained up dragon from 7th Voyage. It’s a nice sharp pic that makes me want to watch that movie. AGAIN.
Thanks to a reader John Ashbrook for sending this one along! Click to embiggen!
