Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts - Directed by Don Chaffey, produced by Charles H. Schneer, based on a myth by Apollonios Rhodios, a 3rd century Greek author. With music by Oscar winning Bernard Herrmann, Jason and the Argonauts is a cultural compass. This independent film was made with material by stop motion animation master Ray Harryhausen. The skeleton fight scene and battle are pure fantasy. He made many other mythical creatures famous, along with himself. Such as, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, The Three Worlds of Gulliver, and Mysterious Island. The film score was composed by Hermann, who also worked with Harryhausen on the fantasy films.
