Ray Harryhausen is a legend of Hollywood special effects. He pioneered the use of stop-motion animation in feature films.

The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and Jason and the Argonauts are two of the most significant films of all time in terms of the early development of special effects. They look primitive compared to modern films, but I remember vividly seeing these as a kid - in the days before Star Wars changed everything - and being completely amazed.

If you've never seen them, I suggest tracking them down.
