# 1 Goodbye Bob Anderson
01-02-2012, 11:31 PM
I just discovered that Bob Anderson - one of the greatest swordsmen alive today - passed away Jan. 1st at the age of 89.

He's responsible for the weapons choreography in virtually every movie involving swords in the last 50 years.
You can see his talent in the Star Wars movies, Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, Princess Bride, and the Highlander series to name a few.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to say farewell to a great artist.

It was sad learning about this yesterday, he was 'one of the greats' in my pinion. He will be missed...and remembered in what I believe was his last involvement that was The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey.
