* Creator/GeorgePerez cited Harryhausen as a chief inspiration for his ''ComicBook/WonderWoman'' run, most notably in the "Challenge of the Gods" story-arc, where the skeleton-army sequence from ''Jason and the Argonauts'' is homaged down to the Hydra-teeth.

* ''Mysterious Island'' - Sequel to ''20,000 Leagues Under the Sea''. Charles Shneer threw in [[AttackOfThe50footWhatever various giant animals]] to give Harryhausen something more to do.

'''Raymond Frederick "Ray" Harryhausen''' (June 29, 1920 May 7, 2013) was a visual effects pioneer and a genius in his field. Inspired by ''Film/KingKong1933'', 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. A lesser known fact: most of the settings in these films were made using matte painting, another technique he mastered.

* ''Film/ClashOfTheTitans'' - Ray's final feature, featuring his last CrowningMomentOfAwesome in the Medusa battle done by flickering firelight. The complexity of that scene wows FX artists to this day.
