Raymond Frederick Harryhausen died today in London at the age of 92.

KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis discussed his legacy with two people who were inspired in their careers by Harryhausen. John Landis has directed many films, among them “The Blues Brothers” and “Beverly Hills Cop III,” and Adam Savage is a special effects designer and co-host of the Discovery Channel series “MythBusters” and “Unchained Reaction.”

“I cannot – literally cannot – think of anyone who has had such a massive influence on four generations of filmmakers in the movies we see.” – John Landis
