On this day in 1920, special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen was born. From his early start in movies (He directed his first animated movie when only 22 years old) to being responsible for the still impressive effects in movies like Jason and the Argonauts, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad and the original (and still the best) Clash Of The Titans, few have done as much to make the impossible seem real in movies, or been as influential to so many (including George Lucas, James Cameron and Steven Spielberg, amongst many others). Many happy returns, Mr. Harryhausen. May your motion never stop.
