Due credit

Sorry about the pedantry, but for some reason it irritates me to read of "Ray Harryhausen's 'Jason and the Argonauts'" or "Ray Harryhausen's 'Clash Of The Titans'", a wording which implies he was the director – some journalists say so outright.  He wasn't.

His revolutionary achievements were technical, especially in the use of stop-motion special effects. Not to diminish the creativity involved in that, he wasn't also the director of those famous films; the nearest was creditation as 'associate producer'.

It's not a perfect analogy, but would one speak of "John Gaeta's 'The Matrix'" or "John Dykstra's 'Star Wars'"?
