I had the honor of giving Ray a lift to see the original Star Wars along with his producer. Sat next to him and listened to him rag on it for the whole thing. Afterwards, he asked me, "Did you really like that Space Cowboy? (referring to Harrison Ford)" "Are you kidding?," I said, "That man is going to be a big star!" He also thought his next movie would blow SWars out of the water. Sadly, he was mistaken about his "Clash of the Titans." But he was very nice even if opinionated and certainly a great talent.

Rest well, Ray.

It wasn't terrible. It just wasn't Star Wars. :o)

I really liked Clash of the Titans! I hope Ray knew that.

RIP Ray.

I know I've watched it at least once, but it's just not memorable for me. But his skeletons...they totally freaked me!

R.I.P sir.

BTW, that sounds like a story that needs expanding.

Just another moment in time from my comic books days. Nothing more.
