#HarryhausenWatchParty- Jason and the Argonauts, June 29th

June 29th will mark what would have been Ray Harryhausen’s 100th birthday. We’d like to invite friends and fans around the world to celebrate his life by watching ‘Jason and the Argonauts’ together on his centenary, at 7:30pm UK time.

Grab your BluRay, DVD, VHS or whichever format suits you best, as we watch this most classic of Harryhausen films together. We’ll be posting behind the scenes facts and images throughout the film on our Twitter Instagram accounts, and sharing your memories of Ray and his work.

We will be announcing the results of our top ten poll earlier in the day, with a special video to celebrate Ray Harryhausen’s most beloved creatures. There will also be a special video from daughter Vanessa Harryhausen, shortly before the screening of ‘Jason’.

Join us for a #HarryhausenWatchParty, and celebrate Ray’s incredible legacy with the Foundation!

    the HYDRA is one of my top 3 favorites / wish Ray could have also made 1 last film before he passed away / I always wanted him to do the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur / this time the Minotaur would have been alive –bull’s head and tail and brown fur,on a man’s body ,wearing the traditional Minoan loin-cloth skirt ,at about 8-9 feet tall / the other Greek myth monster would have been the Chimera – with a lion’s body & head, harpy bat-wings,a dragon’s tail, goat head on the left side, and a Hydra serpent head on the right side / also there would be a prehistoric marine reptile ,the Tylosaurus ,that protects Knossos, and a giant spider and bat,that would have fought each other in a cave / these would have been the 5 only monsters, and Knossos destroyed at the end by a volcano next to Crete ,that the Chimera would have fallen into ,causing the eruption and tidal wave / thank you
