Foreword by Caroline Munro (star of The Golden Voyage of Sinbad), and Preface by Guillermo del Toro (director of Hellboy), who writes, "There is no way to overstate the importance of these books. [Volume 3] is, simply, the most perfect book about Harryhausen ever made. This is the book that you dreamt of having as a child and the only gateway, I guarantee you, to regain that long-gone thrill you had when you where eight years old and you cracked open the pages of the latest issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland. Perhaps more importantly, this book performs one truly magic trick- one that we don't experience often enough: it makes you want to go out, immediately, and rewatch every single one of the the chronicled films and, if at all possible, go and shoot a film yourself. In summation: It makes you fall in love with cinema all over again." Vol. 3 features extensive coverage of: Three Worlds of Gulliver, Mysterious Island, Jason and the Argonauts, First Men "In" the Moon, One Million Years B.C., Valley of Gwangi, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger, and Clash of the Titans. Filled with first-hand accounts and anecdotes from actors, directors, screenwriters, and technicians, including: Ray Harryhausen, Vanessa Harryhausen; producer Charles H. Schneer; actors Kerwin Mathews, John Phillip Law, Patrick Wayne, Taryn Power, Jane Seymour, Harry Hamlin, Judi Bowker, Gila Golan (star of Valley of Gwangi in her first interview in over 40 years), Michael Callan, Lionel Jeffries, Martha Hyer, voiceover artist Nikki van der Zyl (who re-voiced Raquel Welch in One Million Years B.C.); directors Nathan Juran, Sam Wanamaker, Gordon Hessler, and Desmond Davis; sculptors Arthur Hayward, Tony McVey, and Colin Arthur; cinematographer Wilkie Cooper, camera operator Alec Mills, stunt choreographer Ferdinando Poggi, Jason and the Argonauts title artist James Wines (interviewed for the first time about Jason), and many others (some of whom have since passed away).
