  1. Wonderful film Goregirl! I was JUST thinking of using it as a trailer of the day. Glad you posted this. LOVE Harryhausen’s creations.
    As always… you bring us the best stuff!

    • It is probably a little cheesy to say but I think Ray Harryhausen is magic! Watching Jason and the Argonauts, Golden Voyage of Sinbad and Mysterious Island this year reminded me what an absolute joy these flicks are!

      Thanks Monstergirl…and back atcha…The Last Drive-in rocks!

  2. Ahhhh,another great Saturday matinee memory. It was a few years old when I saw it,but it didn’t matter! Your reviews and You Tube videos are always tops,Goregirl!

  3. Love the music…. btw wanted to let you know I cited you today in a blog post of mine…:)

    • This music is wonderfully grand…just like Ray Harryhausen’s creations! More Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked love? I’ll pop over tomorrow…off to a movie tonight.

  4. Oooh, Ray Harryhausen… do you have a list of favorite Ray Harryausen films? Or… his work, I guess?
