R.I.P. Bob Anderson (1922- 2012)

Sad news today in the world of entertainment.

Bob Anderson, Famed Swordfighting Coordinator, Dies at Age 89

I first saw his work in Errol Flynn's The Master of Ballantrae from 1952 or so, and really enjoyed the swashbuckling work in that film, but he went on to have an illustrious career in the swordfight and swashbuckling choreography field, and in the world of fencing. His work will definitely stand the test of time, and his loss is a terrible one.

Rest In Peace, Bob Anderson. Time to put the sword down.
