DVDFILE interviews the great Ray Harryhausen:
I know it is probably impossible to choose among your children, but is there any creation of yours that you are most proud of?
I think Jason (and the Argonauts) is the most complete. I got tired of destroying cities. We started with the Beast destroying Coney Island. We destroyed the Golden Gate Bridge with a giant octopus. And we also destroyed Washington DC. I knocked over the Washington Monument long before Mars Attacks. (laughs) It got rather repetitious. So I was looking for a new avenue, and I thought the legends of Sinbad would be ideal for fantasy and stop motion. And then the next step was Greek Mythology (with Titans).
