  Guest host Jay Duncan talks with visual effects artist Ernest Farino,  editor & publisher of the expansive volumes, "Ray Harryhausen: Master of the Majicks."  Jay & Ernest share their early fascination with the special effects mastery of Ray Harryhausen, who is best known for his stop-motion animation in classic films such as Mighty Joe Young, Jason and the Argonauts, The 7th Voyage of Sinbad, and may other films.  Farino talks about why the 3 volumes of "Master of the Majicks" were published out of order, and why there were constant revisions and additions to the volumes.  In this exclusive online expanded interview, Ernest talks about his time living in El Paso in the 1960s and his encounter with Lon Chaney, Jr., at Western Playland.  It was an event which Jay & Ernest both attended many years before they ever became acquainted!
