Thrill to the story of the maestro of stop-motion animation as the man himself, now 92, explains his craft! Gasp as industry admirers – Spielberg, Cameron, Nick Park et al – pay tribute to his brilliance infilms such as Jason and the Argonauts and The 7th Voyage of Sinbad! Chill to the tale of how seven skeletons came to life! Laugh at stories such as that of Harryhausen’s “giant octopus”, which, for budgetary reasons, had only six legs! Plus, numerous highly watchable DVD extras.
