The Valley of Gwangi

(The Valley of Gwangi)

March 13, 2003

'Valley of Gwangi' is remarkable mainly as an exhibition of the power of Ray Harryhausen's stop-motion animation. In the days before CGI, Harryhausen was the master at bringing to life images which were impossible to film. I first saw this film in the theater (yes in 1969) as a present for my fifteenth birthday and I still remember the wonder of the bloody fight between Gwangi and the elephant. It is hard for us today to realize how valuable this was to us kids with imagination in the Sixties. This is great stuff!
