Description by OLDIES.com:

In the field of special effects, Ray Harryhausen is a legendary pioneer, having created some of the most fantastic and unforgettable creatures to ever come alive on film. For over a half a century he has summoned up, from the depths of our collective unconscious, monsters of myth, fable and legend, the likes of which had never been seen outside the darkest corners of our dreams. From his breakthrough film, the gentle giant of Mighty Joe Young, to the otherworldly effects of sci-fi classics like It Came From Outer Space, the dazzling Sinbad film series and Jason and the Argonauts, his extraordinary achievements have redefined the field, entertained us all and inspired a new generation of filmmakers like George Lucas to create new unseen worlds for everyone to explore. Narrated by Leonard Nimoy.
