Charles Schneer Passes

Many won't know the name, but Charles Schneer has died at age 88. He's best known for his role as producer on nearly all of Ray Harryhausen's classic films - excluding the Beast from 20,000 Fathoms - including some of the greatest stop motion creature features ever created. Having grown up with Harryhausen films, this is one of the biggest losses in the industry personally short of Harryhausen himself passing away. After the jump is the note from IMDB (can't link unfortunately):

Producer Charles Schneer, best known for his collaborations with legendary special-effects wiz Ray Harryhausen, died on January 21 in Boca Raton, Fl at age 88, his daughter said Sunday. His films with Harryhausen included It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955), Earth vs. the Flying Saucers (1956), 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957),The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), The 3 Worlds of Gulliver (1960), Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977), and Clash of the Titans (1981). Among his 25 films, he also produced Hellcats of the Navy in 1957, featuring Ronald Reagan and the then Nancy Davis, his future wife, in their only screen appearances together.
