Back-Up Copies

As the author I plan to make a copy of the entire project for their own safe-keeping. This is because it is the project pages themselves that are subbed (not copies, as is the case for Edited Entries), so in the unlikely event of the Sub accidentally deleting a page, I have a back-up.

The Story Behind The Article

Ray Harryhausen has long been a childhood hero, ever since I saw Clash of the Titans as a child. I've been thinking about writing a Harryhausen-related article for a while1 and as I had booked tickets to see Ray Harryhausen: Special Effects Titan at the Harbour Lights Picture House2 I decided that now was a good time. I've collected most of Harryhausen's films, including his early childhood stuff and fairytales.

1In fact the bit about the various Sinbad actors' beards was written in mid 2011.2After the screening their was an unannounced Question & Answer session with Tony Dalton, Curator of the Harryhausen Foundation and author of many books about and with Ray Harryhausen (he lives on the Isle of Wight) who was the producer of the documentary. He brought along with him a skeleton from Jason And The Argonauts and the ornithomimus dinosaur from The Valley of Gwangi.
