RIP Charles H. Schneer
John Updike and James Brady, who worked different facets of the literary spectrum, have left us. But they'll get enough ink. Schneer's stop-motion animation spectacles with Ray Harryhausen are long-time favorites of mine, and he gets due credit from this corner for guiding them through prolonged production cycles. The fantastic cinema was fortunate in his shepherding.
