We've always been a bit fascinated by stop motion photography. Saw the fantasy adventure 'Jack the Giant Killer' first run at the local movie house as a youngster. Six years old and was completely dazzled by the images of the on screen "giants" menacing our hero Jack. Had no idea of the talent nor cinematic process employed to bring the animated creatures to the screen. Could have been real for all we knew. Do recall that the images of the frightful banshees attacking Jack's ship (although not stop motion process) had us checking under the bed and looking in the closet before turning in for weeks thereafter. Mom was no help either, promptly reminding us to "go ahead - keep it up and I'm gonna' tell the banshees to get 'ya" each instance we'd piss 'er off. We'd settle right down.
