RIP Ray Harryhausen

The world lost a great in the special effects industry with the death of Ray Harryhausen. I remember his work fondly from his late work, the original ONLY Clash of the Titans.
In our present era, when films use CGI as a crutch more often than not, Harryhausen had a gift for creating life-like movement using models and stop-motion animation. Sadly, its a dying art.

Watch one of his most celebrated scenes from Jason and the Argonauts. How does one kill a skeleton anways?

(sad truth? I actually thought Harryhausen was already dead. I guess I will just keep missing him.)
