This is a good point. I also felt sorry for that thing being chained against the wall. You don't get the same emotional impact with CGI.

I used to love watching Jason and the Argonauts on TV as a kid when it would come on. The special effects are pretty mind-blowing for 1963, and the skeleton fight scene is pure awesomeness.

Speaking of TV, as a kid we had 4 channels, but once cable came we were up to 26 channels! Yeah you read that right you young whipper-snappers, a whole 26 channels. So when Jason and the Argonauts came on TV it was a big event.
