My sympathy to the family and close friends,

He simply was one of the best at what he did for the cinema. May he rest in peace.

I grew up with your wonderful work, no one can take your place, My prayers go out to the family. As the others say, I grew up on Sat matinees with Ray's work. My son is hooked on his work as well as my good friend back in Scranton, PA. We have all the movies and devoted a all nighter watching the good flicks. Rest In Peace my friend

Sorry to hear the passing of Mr. Harryhausen. He was a great artist.

I was watching the Sinbad movies this afternoon on the Sony Movie Channel, and was saddened deeply to see that Ray had passed away yesterday.
I grew up in the 60's, seeing all his movies at the theater and was glued to the screen by his magical special effects and creations.
No one today makes movies like Ray Harryhausen.
I will never forget the image of the Cyclops and the other creatures he designed.
My father just turned 91 years old, and so I was even more saddened thinking of my father and his time remaining on this planet.
My father grew up in the theaters with King Kong and also had tears when I told him about Ray's passing.
My condolences to Diana and the Harryhausen family. Ray will be missed but not forgotten.

I hope the family of Mr. Harryhausen can remember the good times & laugh& cry tears of joy. Soon we will all cry tears of joy when sickness & death is swallowed up forever.

What a legacy he leaves. Is there a film maker today who uses special effects that was not awed by his magical techniques. So simple, but so effective. Glad his wonderful effects and movies live on.

As a child, the Bronze Titan in Jason and the Argonauts, and the Cyclops in The 7th Voyage of Sinbad terrified me...but oh how I loved watching them! When my son was a child, we saw both movies together. Between Mr. Harryhausen and George Lucas, my son was so inspired, and he is now a successful special effects artist, living in Los Angeles. And, to this day, when we are together we still love watching these movies. I think my son's favorite Harryhausen movie is the original Clash of the Titans. Thank you so very much, Mr. Harryhausen!! God Bless!
