Ray Harryhausen's quotes

  • [on his Oscar] I was delighted to be recognized, and pleased now that animation is recognized as a legitimate profession.
  • [from an interview in 2000 about King Kong (1933)] I went to see it again and again. I was a "King Kong" addict! I loved the way the film took you from the mundane world into the surreal.
  • Oh, certainly it was. The Academy ignored every film. So I was grateful we got an Oscar. But that was for Lifetime Achievement.
  • [about most of his films[] They were considered "B" pictures because they were made on a tight budget. But we outlived many of the "A" pictures made at the same time.
  • I'm very happy that so many young fans have told me that my films have changed their lives. That's a great compliment. It means I did more than just make entertaining films. I actually touched people's lives--and, I hope, changed them for the better.
  • There's a strange quality in stop-motion photography, like in King Kong (1933), that adds to the fantasy. If you make things too real, sometimes you bring it down to the mundane.
  • I had to do everything because I couldn't find another kindred soul. Now you see 80 people listed doing the same things I was doing by myself.
