I always enjoyed Mr Scott as Tarzan, regularly seeing his Tarzan pictures on the late afternoon movies they used to run when I was a kid.

He was probably my second favourite Tarzan, in fact, and while his films were very good, I still think the best is Tarzan and His Mate (1934).

". . .sit back, relax, and watch the pictures as they fly through the air."

Unfortunately, I haven't seen the Tom Snyder/Ray Bradbury interviews, but I'm told they were excellent.

So long, Tom. We'll see you Tomorrow.

Rave: I have the interview (taped many year's ago - The Late, Late Show w/ Tom Snyder - '96) and will have to give it a revisit. TS was a lifelong Dodgers fan and a groundbreaking tv interviewer!

I, too, was fortunate to tape a couple of the shows when Tom Snyder had Ray on as a guest. There was no question that Tom was a big fan of Ray's.

While it may be a bit late in the day for this news, it does not appear to have been posted on this board before. Father Time finally did what the Cyclops, the Roc, the fire-breathing Dragon and the evil magician Sikura could not. Kerwin Mathews, the star of Ray Harryhausen's two films THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINDBAD and THE THREE WORLDS OF GULLIVER (as well as the Sindbad-inspired JACK THE GIANT KILLER) passed away on July 5, 2007 at the age of 81. I will never forget seeing SINDBAD as a seven-year-old at a local theater in the small town in Ohio where I grew up. As I watched the parade of Harryhausen's creatures appear on the screen, I kept thinking to myself, "How did they do that!" And I went around humming Bernard Herrmann's great score for days afterwards.

Here is a link to some details about Mathews career:

Richard, I remember Kerwin Mathews! (And that's "Sinbad") I love Bernard Herrmann's music for that film. Dynamation!

Also passing, at age 89, is the great Ingmar Bergman.

Don't recall Ray ever being a Merv Griffin guest, but he deserves a mention anyway.

I have a nice portrait of Max Roach that I'd like to digitize and post. Any suggestions out there as to the best way to do this? Scan? Digital camera? Something else?

Braling II:

You haven't posted a photo before? Thought you did. You can take a photo of the photo with your digital camera (put it on short range focus)...then download it into photoshop (if you have it)...or some program to 'compress' the thing for posting. Too large a file and the Bradbury site will kick it back. Or just try to post what your digital camera took. Sometimes particular cameras take photos all ready for posting without compressing it.

dandelion:

Here's a photo of Ray and Merv, from Ray's personal collection.
Also in the photo is Angelica Huston, John Huston's daughter.

Wow! for sure. What was all this costuming about with Ray and Merv Griffin and Huston?
