In An Animated Life (Aurum, 2003) Ray Harryhausen told the story of hisareer as the acknowledged grandmaster of special effects in the pre-computerra, the creator of classics such as One Million Years BC, Jason and thergonauts and Clash of Titans.

These include preliminary sketches,laborate drawings of key scenes and carefully plotted storyboards, allroduced as he sought backing for his next venture and prepared to undertakehe laborious task of animating the prehistoric creatures, aliens andythical monsters which stole scene after scene from the human actors. Therere also the tiny, elaborately articulated models which Harryhausen createdo play these roles and the bronzes which he cast to preserve their forms inerpetuity. This stunning array of images is a tribute to the scope ofarryhausen's imagination and his artistic skills which no student of specialffects or cinema history will want to be without.
