* Harryhausen's first gig was making shorts for the Army. Infamously, the short ''How To Build a Bridge'' had no visuals of soldiers putting the bridge together, and the superiors worried that the soldiers would think the bridges ''[[ViewersAreMorons would build themselves!]]''

* Fantastic plots: ''Jason'' and ''Clash'' were both adapted from Myth/GreekMythology, the ''Sinbad'' movies came from [[ArabianNightsDays Arabian myths]] (with an ''[[Literature/TheOdyssey Odyssey]]'' feeling nonetheless), and ''One Million Years BC'' was set in a [[ArtisticLicensePaleontology prehistorical world with humans ... and dinosaurs]].

* The ''VideoGame/GodOfWar'' series draws a lot of inspiration from Harryhausen's movies, namely the Myth/GreekMythology inspired ones. In particular, the second game includes several shout outs, including fighting skeletons while following Film/{{Jason|AndTheArgonauts}}.

'''Ray Harryhausen''' (June 29, 1920 May 7, 2013) was a visual effects pioneer and a genius in his field. Inspired by ''Film/KingKong'', he became the most prominent StopMotion animator in the film industry and worked on such classics as ''Film/JasonAndTheArgonauts'', ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'', three ''Sinbad'' films (''Film/The7thVoyageOfSinbad'' , ''Film/TheGoldenVoyageOfSinbad'' and ''Film/SinbadAndTheEyeOfTheTiger''), as well as some of the most notable dinosaur films of the pre-''Franchise/JurassicPark'' era. Most of the settings in these films were made using matte painting.
