Editor's Note
Full of pride, Cassiopeia compares her daughter's beauty to that of Hera. Angered, the queen of the gods has Poseidon unleash the monstrous beast Craken to destroy their village unless Cassiopeia's daughter, Andromeda, is sacrificed. Perseus, the son of Zeus, becomes enchanted with the breathtaking beauty and is determined to save her from this fate. The young hero, armed with a magical shield, a winged stallion and a mechanical owl, discovers the only way to defeat the monster is with the head of Medusa. The gods watch and intervene on Perseus' quest to save his beloved.

This was legendary special effects wizard Ray Harryhausen's last film before he retired from creating movie magic. L.A. LAW's Harry Hamlin stars as the Greek mythological hero Perseus who fights snake-haired Medusa and two-headed dogs to save the lovely Andromeda (Judi Bowker). Laurence Olivier, as Zeus, is one of the many screen legends in this adventure. Burgess Meredith, Claire Bloom, Maggie Smith and Ursula Andress round out the cast as the Gods of Mount Olympus.

Director Desmond Davis was camera operator on TOM JONES and A TASTE OF HONEY, two influential early 1960s British films. Writer Beverly Cross was one of the writers on 1963's Ray Harryhausen film, JASON AND THE ARGONAUTS.

Expert Review Clash of the Titans - DVD Review
By: Jason Morgan filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 2/19/2010 6:43 PM
Having woken up in a hungover haze late on a Saturday, you flip on the TV as you plop down on the couch. By chance (or is it fate?) you land on the cheesy afternoon movie matinee. The awful acting, worse special effects and cast of washed up actors trying to recapture their glory days is enough to keep you from your daily responsibilities. You're watching Clash of the Titans and reveling in its desperation to be the grandest of all cinematic adventures, but missing nearly every mark. Time has been kind to Titans -- and not because the stop-motion Ray Harryhausen effects have aged well (they haven't) nor that the story is all that compelling (it isn't). The kitschy Clash of the Titans falls into the "so bad it's good" category....read the full review

Wall Street Journal
"The movie's star, of course, is Ray Harryhausen, the stop-motion maestro who created the still-endearing special effects." 04/09/2010
