Notes and Editorial Reviews
This insightful program explores children’s fascination with dinosaurs and how Hollywood has brought the beasts to life. This documentary also examines the history of dinosaurs in Hollywood, from the early 1900s animation to the work of Ray Harryhausen, then Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park.
Listen in as Harryhausen recounts his early, primitive techniques using rubber dinosaurs and stop-motion photography to bring to life movies such as “One Million Years B.C.”
Harryhausen unlocks the question pursued throughout the program about the juvenile attraction to dinosaurs: They’re real, and knowing dinosaurs once walked on this planet makes them more special than cartoon characters.
This is a
must-have program for special-effects buffs, especially for the Harryhausen segments.
