The guy who was responsible for the awesome, heart wrenching duel at the end of Return of the Jedi died yesterday.

Sad

Bob Anderson was awesome. Not only did he work on Star Wars, but he was responsible for The Princess Bride, Lord of the Rings, The Zorro movies with Antonio Banderas, and countless other legends of the blade and the silver screen.

He will be sorely missed.

...Sorely missed indeed! He was one of my grandmother's favorite fencers.
