We all have our own favourite Ray Harryhausen movies. My first was THE 3 WORLDS OF GULLIVER when it opened in England in 1960 - I was 13 years old and I loved it and saw it three times that week it played. At age 14, in 1961, came MYSTERIOUS ISLAND and I managed to see it seven times in one week spending all my pocket money savings to do so. I was hooked on Ray's stunning visual effects and Bernard Herrmann's monumental and powerful music score.
In the U.K. the 35mm theatrical prints of Ray's films were all produced at the Technicolor labs doing full justice to Ray's endeavours, and how the visuals leaped off the giant cinema screens on which we saw them. Each successive Ray Harryhausen/Charles H. Schneer production was eagerly anticipated as they always delivered great and magical entertainment.
Years later I was to meet both of these film makers and worked closely with them to promote their movies. It was a privilege and an experience I shall never forget, just as their films will never be forgotten as they live on to captivate successive generations of audiences around the world.

Farewell Ray, as you are reunited with your film associate Charles.

From Richard Green in England, May 15th 2013, with fond memories.
