Little Red Riding Hood

Hey, I found on youtube an animated version of Little Red Riding Hood, with the animation and characters done by Ray Harryhausen at the early stage of his career. As you suspect I always loved the story, and I am a fan of Ray Harryhausen, so I am quite happy. His wolf sure is terrifying. Harryhausen makes the story appropriately atmospheric and scary. It's interesting to see that here the wolf did not eat the grandmother and Little Red Riding Hood. Maybe it was due to the limitations of animation. Another detail i find very funny: when pursued by the wolf, Little Red Riding Hood acts like a girl from a slasher movie and takes the stairs (where she can only get trapped) instead of leaving the house.
