Ray Harryhausen, 1920-2013







The stop-motion animator and special-effects wizard who brought to life the most memorable inter-species battles of my childhood died today. It's perhaps a stretch to honor Ray Harryhausen on a gay wrestling blog, but my imagination is as steeped in Jason and the Argonauts as it is in Championship Wrestling from Florida with Gordon Solie.

  2. Just saw this post. I too was a big fan. One scene in Jason and the Argonauts I like was when they had to fight the giant bronze man/statue and defeated (pun, I guess) him by opening rear of his heel and the innards/fluids bled out.
