Happy birthday to Ray Harryhausen

Special effects maestro Ray Harryhausen turns 89 today! So glad you're still with us, Ray.  Hope to see you at Comic-Con.

Celebrate by watching the skeleton fight scene from Jason and the Argonauts and then Kali's dance from The Golden Voyage of Sinbad. Ray's career has been a long and varied one but these scenes are perhaps my favorites of his. 

Nerd alert: if that magician making Kali dance looks familiar, he should - it's Tom Baker of Dr. Who fame.
