RAY HARRYHAUSEN
The special effects legend signs on this typed letter from London, England in 1984 to ask a museum employee to clarify an earlier request for a letter. With original mailing envelope.
Typed letter signed "Ray Harryhausen". 1 page, 8x11½, on Clash of the Titans stationery. London, England, July 31, 1984. Addressed to Mr. Todd M. Axelrod, American Museum of Historical Documents, Las Vegas, Nevada. In full: "Dear Mr. Axelrod: Thank you for your letter of July 18th. Unfortunately it is not quite clear exactly what you would like from me. Would you please send a copy of some sample letters from previous contributors. It would aid greatly as a guide. As you know, my profession is rather unusual and sometimes requires rather lengthy explanations to make it understandable to the lay-man. Yours sincerely,". Lightly toned. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by: Original air mail envelope. Postmarked Kensington, England, July 31, 1984. Addressed to Mr. Todd M. Axelrod, American Museum of Historical Documents, Las Vegas, Nevada. One 28p British stamp affixed. Lightly creased. Neatly cut open at top edge. Otherwise in fine condition. Ray Harryhausen (1920-2013), born Raymond Frederick Harryhausen in Los Angeles, California, is a legendary special effects creator and producer who was famous for his stop-motion animated movie creatures and monsters of the 1950s to 1980s and who inspired many of today's special effects creators. Many of his creatures showed up in fairly schlocky movies, like Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956), which meant that his creatures often eclipsed the real-life actors. But his special effects also showed up in high-budget movies like The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953) and Clash of the Titans (1981).
