Your Harryhausen Moment of the Day


Cowboys 'n' dinosaurs! Boy, it doesn't get any better than that. Courtesy of the movie The Valley of Gwangi (1969). That's Gwangi the Allosaurus there in the cart.

I HAVE to see that film.
Eccentric cinema kept tempting me with it...
I must!!! SEE!!! IT!!!
Cowboys and dinosaurs!!!!

oh and by the way a touchy subject has arisen over my latest batch of antibullshit over at the dome.
I'd love to read your thoughts on the matter...
thanks anyway :-)

I also woudl like to imagine what's going through the mind of Gwangi there.

'Oh yes. A stick cage. with ropes. I'm sure this has me completely immobilised. Yessir. There's no way I'm busting out of this crappy piece of junk and biting all your heads off. nope. None at all.'

Wow. That is a wonderful idea for a story. Can I buy a box set?

Ray was great about doing the research to make his critters look exactly like the current prevailing theories.

Amazing how much the model has changed since then.

Thanks for these!

Sadly, Gwangi doesn't seem to be included in any of the Harryhausen box sets I've seen. It isn't one of Harryhausen's better known films. :-( I guess too many people thought combining cowboys and dinosaurs was too silly. Bah!
