The Valley of Gwangi (1969)

The creatures in Ray Harryhausen films range from fantasy to real. In the film, The Valley of Gwangi, we get to see both. The dinosaur, Gwangi, battles a circus elephant (note, this is an Indian elephant with the small ears). This diorama of a key scene of Gwangi fighting the elephant has been provided by the amazing folks at Alternate Images models. The elephant was assembled and painted first followed by Gwangi who is perched on the back of the elephant. Gwangi has taken a sizable gouge out of the back of the elephant.
