Ray Harryhausen created many iconic creatures, but which one is the world’s favourite? Well not only are we all about to find out but we can also put our two cents in by voting for our personal favourite!
A month ahead of what would have been Ray Harryhausen’s 100th birthday, The Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation have launched an online poll to find which one of his many creations is the world’s favourite and you can vote for your very own in the link below.
An exhibition of Ray’s work is also scheduled to be displayed later this year at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art which will allow the public to see recently restored versions of some of his most beloved creations.
The exhibition, Ray Harryhausen: Titan Of Cinema, will be accompanied by a book written by his daughter, Vanessa.
“Dad’s amazing creations have a special place in my heart,” said Vanessa Harryhausen of the new poll. “I am curious to see what the rest of the world thinks, and who will be victorious in this clash of the titans.”
The book will mark the first time Vanessa has spoken about her father’s work in such detail, and will include a personal biography of her father, from the beginnings in the 1930s through to projects he was working on just less than a decade ago.
Furthermore, ten randomly selected voters will win a signed copy of Ray Harryhausen: Titan Of Cinema.
Ray Harryhausen’s centenary will be celebrated on 29 June and Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema will be released later this year
