It's just a cutout mounted on cardboard screwed to the side of the wooden plank the model is standing on.

I thought so, but it's kind of hard to tell from a flat photo and the angle that the various photos were shot from aren't that different.

Gonna go look at the clip a few more times!  :)

Your Cormoran has the classic Harryhausen stance.  :)

I've wondered for a while now. Was Cormoron a tweaked version of the Cyclops from 7th Voyage of Sinbad? I know that the movie sued the other for being too similar. And they had mostly the same actors. And, of course, Harryhausen.

Cormoron appeared in the fairy tale version of "Jack the Giant Killer".

And they had mostly the same actors. And, of course, Harryhausen.

Harryhausen didn't do the FX for "Jack". Jim Danforth did most of the animation.

Oh okay.
I knew what movie it was, I just thought Harryhausen did both. They still look very similar.

I think it's fair to say JACK wouldn't have been made if it wasn't for the success of SINBAD.
