Just a week ago, I was standing right near this scene--looking at Fort Point (under the bridge arch--there's no house there).
Ray Harryhausen's got a hell of a resume across decades of movie history. Screw the CGI stuff, his stop-motion work is the coolest thing ever. If anyone could have made Hayden Christensen seem like a realistic creature in the "Star Wars" prequels, it'd have been Mr. Harryhausen.
He might even have been able to make Keanu Reeves into an actor!
[ "Cool stuff" tag's for his work, not his death--but 95 years is still a hell of a tour. ]
