While there has been much discussion on the Board about Ray Bradbury centennial events and celebrations, it is also worth noting that the 100th birthday of the brilliant stop-motion animator, and close Bradbury friend, Ray Harryhausen will be celebrated in June of this year. The Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation will be announcing centennial-related events on its website as they are scheduled. To date, a display of Ray Harryhausen's work is scheduled to take place at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh from May through October of 2020 in honor of his 100th birthday.

YouTube's Dark Corner Reviews has just premiered a wonderful, 30+ minute documentary on Ray Harryhausen in honor of his centennial year, MYTH MAKER: THE FANTASY FILMS OF RAY HARRYHAUSEN. You can watch the program by clicking on the link below. I still vividly remember seeing the film THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD in a theater as a child back in 1958. I had never before seen anything like the film's incredible special effects, and I went around humming Bernard Herrmann's superb score for days.
