I'd give my left pinky finger to be there. I wonder how much I could get for it on ebay?

I'd give my right pinky finger! (I need all my fingers on my left hand, being that I'm a lefty!) Heck, wish I could afford the time off to go!

Just got back from the screening of SWTWC. Ray was on stage to introduce the film and gave a nice talk about hoe the movie actually came about in its present form. Ray then introduced Ray Harryhausen, who was in the audience, and whom he has known for many years. My wife and I had a great time in the old theatre and the movie was a good as it could be on the large screen. A great time was had by all. Ray looked to be in pretty good health and was gracious as usual in signing anything put in front of him.

Very cool. I'm jealous (in a positive way, of course!)

Copied from http://www.phobos-deimos.com/History/SWTWC/SWTWC.htm

In late 1997, Lexus rolled out a new ad campaign for the model year 1998 GS300 and GS400. The print campaign for "the fiercest automatic sedan in the world" introduced their new slogan of "Faster. Sleeker. Meaner," and included the lines:

Distant thunder, cold as stone,
a V8 screams down from its throne.
One by one, each car succumbs.
Something wicked this way comes.

Ill winds mark its fearsome flight,
and autumn branches creak with fright.
The landscape turns to ashen crumbs,
when something wicked this way comes.

Crystal water turns to dark,
where e'er its presence leaves its mark,
and boiling currents pound like drums,
when something wicked this way comes.

A presence dark invades the fair,
and gives the horses ample scare,
for chaos reigns and panic numbs,
when something wicked this way comes.

The ad agency responsible for the campaign was Team One of El Segundo, CA.

Bet whoever wrote that is an RB fan--thanks for sharing it.

This is off-topic and I apologize, but it kind of fits here, and it has to do with Ray. For months, I've had this print magazine ad floating in my head that I'd love to see done. Imagine Ray, respendent in black tux, hands folded over a gold-handled cane, sitting in a large red-leather-and-mahogany chair, against a white background. Underneath, in a stylized font, "Imagine the Sound of Summer Running." Then, in small print at the bottom of the page, "just do it." And no, I would not ask that he wore sneakers.

It's just an idea that got my curiosity going. Has Ray ever endorsed a product? Has he ever been involved in advertising? Comments?

Ray has generally shunned commercial endorsements and advertising. However, he did appear in a hilarious TV commercial...I think it was in the '70's...as a favor to the commercial's creator, Stan Freberg, one of Ray's best friends. It was a commercial for Sunsweet Prunes and I think it was called "Brave New Prune"(!)

There was talk of Ticonderoga Pencils doing a "Dandelion Wine"-themed ad, but I don't think it ever materialized. He has also "endorsed" Campbell's Soup and IBM typewriters in interviews, but not in printed or filmed commercials.
