Stop motion king

  Ray Harryhausen with one of his skeleton warriors

 Dead but threatening

Jason battles with seven warriors of the thin variety

Over time, the details of a film, even a classic, tend to blur and fade.

Bringing Up Baby: Annoying rich girl, leopard, dinosaur

Gone with the Wind: Annoying rich girl, war, Atlanta fire, dramatic break-up

Dr. Zhivago: Epic love story, Russia, fatal heart attack

Bullitt: Handsome cop with great driving skills, witness protection, San Francisco

French Connection: Not-typically-handsome cop with great driving skills, drugs, New York

Jason and the Argonauts: Greek gods, Bernard Herrmann score and the unforgettable battle between Jason and the skeleton warriors
