For Halloween proper Brian Leno trots out an apt image recently pulled from his holdings:
I bought this years ago, and I think, if I remember rightly, purchased it directly from William Stout.
Of course it’s an original drawing of the Cyclops from the 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), one of the great Ray Harryhausen movies.
It was rough going trying to locate this in one of my autograph folders, but now that I’ve found it I’ve decided it needs to be framed and hung on the wall.
Just in time for Halloween.
Now all I have to do is find the wall space. . . .
