Movie producer who produced most of the Ray Harryhausen films died Jan 21 in Boca Raton, Fla.

See Producer Charles H. Schneer dies - Entertainment News, Obituary, Media - Variety

If not for the Schneer/Harryhausen partnership, there might not have been so many of these films.

I didn't realize he was still alive. Did they ever record any commentaries with him?

I don't recall any Schneer commentaries on any of the Harryhausen DVDs or Laserdiscs. There's at least one clip of him and Ray on YouTube.

I grew up with those Harryhausen fantasy classics.
