Valentine’s Day Ideas : Dogs, Dinosaurs, Spiders and Craters

Valentine’s Day is this weekend so I decided to do a little rooting around the Archive. I found some very cool stuff but a stop animation that was brought to my attention was so cool I wanted to post it first. It is a twisted story of love and lust. Check it out, just amazing:

Duffy the Mascot (1934) – http://www.archive.org/details/Duffy_the_Mascot

Which got me thinking about stop animation in general. Turns out we have several versions of the first major film by the early master Willis O’Brien, “Lost World“: http://www.archive.org/details/lost_world

He was the inspiration for the great Ray Harryhausen. We have an early short from him: http://www.archive.org/details/mother_goose_little_miss_muffet

Finally, for your astronomy minded lover might I suggest NASAimages’ hearts of Mars: http://ia311025.us.archive.org/1/items/PLAN-PIA05296/PIA05296.jpg
