Well, Ray Harryhausen in person anyway.

The Art of Ray Harryhausen is on Saturday, April 8th at 7:00 PM at the Rafael Film Center in San Rafael. From the site:

Presentation, discussion, book-signing & a restored print of The 7th Voyage of Sinbad

Ray Harryhausen in person
with special guests Craig Barron, Arnold Kunert & Phil Tippett

$15 general
$12 CFI members, seniors, children 12 & under

Make way for Ray! In celebration of the Rafael's seventh anniversary, we welcome Ray Harryhausen, the legendary giant of fantasy filmmaking, stop-motion animation and special effects, who remains youthful at 85. Harryhausen makes his fourth public appearance at the Rafael, during which he will give an illustrated talk about his fantasy creature designs and screen a beautifully restored print of The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958).

Inspired by the original King Kong, Harryhausen pursued a career in model animation and eventually became the medium's grandmaster. His Sinbad movies, along with such spectacles as Jason and the Argonauts and Mysterious Island, in turn influenced future filmmakers George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, as well as virtually every animator and effects artist working today.

Following his presentation and screening, Harryhausen will sign copies of his lavishly-illustrated new book, The Art of Ray Harryhausen, available for sale at the Rafael. Co-authored with Tony Dalton, The Art of Ray Harryhausen features a loving foreword by another filmmaker Harryhausen inspired: Peter Jackson, director of The Lord of the Rings and King Kong.

Starring Kerwin Mathews, Torin Thatcher and Kathryn Grant and directed by Nathan Juran, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad might be the best-loved of Harryhausen's fantasy adventures. Harryhausen's stop-motion magic and Bernard Herrmann's rousing music will be their best in this beautifully restored print from Sony Pictures Entertainment. (Special thanks to Grover Crisp and Michael Schlesinger.)

"Ooh, I love animation," he said before letting his eyes wander down. "Speaking of...," he began to say but he was cut short by a sudden blow of a cast iron frying pan to the back of his head wielded by an assailant unknown.

One of my favorite childhood films!

Hurry! Better buy your tickets before all those George Lucas people buy out the event.
