As you might expect (re: my avatar), I'm very happy with this announcement. The 'hour only' thing is a bit scary, but it's probably worth remembering that Mr Harryhausen is 89 years old. Heck, there'll be no whip-cracking from me. I'll try to see him and hope I'm lucky.

Ray is a sponsered guest and is coming to sign at the Cinema Store dealers table. He is therefore being looked after by them, not Showmasters.

 

As far as the numbers getting through and the gold pass question, these will need to be asked of them on the day.

I can advise that Ray is hoping to be on The Cinema Store stand for at least the morning from 10am. He is greatly looking forward to the event.

What's the procedure for this, Bruce? Will it be possible to get another item signed as well, as long as you buy a book?

I am sure he will sign one other item provided you buy a book !

Check with a member of staff on the stand thank you

As you can imagine, this is exciting for many of us. I'm travelling all the way from Belgium and hope to meet this legend as well.

 

Is there a limit to the amount of autographs? I would like two or three maybe. And do you know the cost? Thanks!
