Ray is the spiritual and physical heir to Willis O'Brien's legacy. Inspired by King Kong in 1933, he became one of the great storytellers of the era with his films, Jason and the Argonauts, Seventh Voyage of Sinbad, Valley of Gwangi, and many others. Ray worked with Willis O'Brien bringing the original Mighty Joe Young to life in 1949.
