The Two Rays

I've attached a photo from this evening's little talk at Mystery and Imagination. The gentleman on the left is the one and only Ray Harryhausen. The man on the right is one Mr. Raymond Douglas Bradbury.

It is hard to fathom that these two "kids" have known each other for SEVENTY years. Some of you may not know this but RH was the best man at RB's wedding.

Here is another photo of the HP Lovecraft Society showing Mr. H. their articulated Cthulhu model used in their NEW black and white silent movie, The Call of Cthulhu.

John, that Cthulhu picture needs a caption. I suggest Mr H is saying, "That's nothing, you should see these skeletons I once did!"

RH was polite but you could tell that he was less than impressed with the model. However, the monster was made to resemble pre-Harryhausen modeling so when one watches the movie it is in one sees that it is what was needed.

This link will take you to the bookshop where Ray Bradbury and Ray Harryhausen first met...seventy some odd years ago. You'll enjoy the article on the their homepage:
