    Re: Time to Send the Grand Canyon Diorama to Yesterland

    Trivia: The music heard in the PW is from the 1962 classic film "Mysterious Island," written and conducted by Bernard Herrmann, which featured special effects by the master of stop-motion, Ray Harryhausen. Sometimes, I get on the train just to hear that wonderful, dramatic score again.[/QUOTE]

    Thanks for contributing this. I am a huge fan of Bernard Herrmann. His scores for the Hitchcock films are pure genius.

    So anyway, that kind of adds to the OP's post/idea. If one would find it boring as a walk thru, whats to say a slow train ride isn't boring too to some ppl? I think this thread went full circle just now w/ post #371.

    I would love to see it as a walk-thru. To be able to stare at it for as long as I wanted would work, just like staring at a piece of art at the D'Orsay in Paris or MOMA in San Fran (my two fave art museums).
    I'm aware that one usually inspects most dioramas on foot. But this one is designed for a right-to-left linear interpretation, at a set pace--not coincidentally, at the speed of the railroad cars. The transiton to winter effect--it works in the context of the audience being moved along at a certain rate.
