Harryhausen Producer Dies

Producer Charles H. Schneer, who worked with Ray Harryhausen on many of his special effects epics, passed away on Jan. 21 in Boca Raton, Florida. He was 88.
From there, Harryhausen and Schneer worked on effects films like EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCER and 20 MILLION MILES TO EARTH, while Schneer produced on his own films like HELLCATS OF THE NAVY and FACE OF A FUGITIVE.

Getting Harryhausen to work in color, Schneer produced their biggest 1950s-era hit THE SEVENTH VOYAGE OF SINBAD as well as THE THREE WORLDS OF GULLIVER, MYSTERIOUS ISLAND and JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS, Schneer's favorite of their long collaboration.

The two later re-teamed for THE VALLEY OF GWANGI, THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD, SINBAD AND THE EYE OF THE TIGER and their final film, the big budget CLASH OF THE TITANS at MGM.
