Ewbank’s had planned to offer 140 lots from the collection of Tony Dalton, biographer and former colleague of Ray Harryhausen.

Known as the ‘master of model stop-motion animation’, American-born Harryhausen (1920-2013) was one of the most influential figures in cinema history due to the special effects he employed on his films such as Clash of the Titans and Jason and The Argonauts.

According to a statement from Ewbank’s, it has postponed the sale “by agreement between vendor Tony Dalton and the Ray and Diana Harryhausen Foundation”.
