RE: Ray Harryhausen passes away

A great loss. I shared a number of meals with his wife and him and they were
great people and he was just a true inspiration as an animator and a human
being. He will be missed.

Subject: Ray Harryhausen passes away


Just heard that the great stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen has passed

I know that for a sizeable fraction of our community  of a certain age,
Harryhausen's animated fossil animals (and other creatures) were the closest
thing we saw in childhood to ancient creatures coming to life.
