That is sad news - he certainly had a huge influence on the industry.

When I saw the headline Legendary LOTR Swordsman Dies I assumed it was Sean Bean.

The reason the duels in Empire and Jedi were so much better than the one in Star Wars. RIP.

For choreographing the swordfight in The Princess Bride, let alone his work on Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Zorro and Highlander, the man, who was also a GB Olympic fencing champion, deserves one of these.

Utter legend and a sodding brilliant swordsman. R.I.P Bob.

Indeed. The swordfighting in The Princess Bride in particular is awesome considering the actors had to learn to fight with both hands.

That's an excellent photo. There is a documentary on the man currently on Netflix if you're in the US. "Reclaiming the Blade" made in 2009.

Peter Jackson writes,

It is a rare, even within the film industry, that you get to work with a legend which was why I was thrilled when Bob Anderson agreed to come on board The Lord of the Rings as our sword-master. In fact, it took a while for it to sink in that I was going to get to work with the same man who had helped create some of cinema's greatest fight sequences - from Star Wars to The Princess Bride. Bob was a brilliant swordsman and a gifted teacher; I will remember him as a wonderfully patient man, possessed of a terrific sense of humour. It was a privilege to have known him.
