Legendary sword master, Bob Anderson, dies

Former Olympic fencer Bob Anderson passed away in England on New Year's Day. Bob Anderson was a behind-the-scenes name who had a tremendous impact not only on the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, but on cinema itself.

The story of Anderson’s career and background was captured in the documentary, “Reclaiming the Blade.” According to director Daniel McNicoll, Anderson once told him, “You know I don’t feel like I found the sword, I feel like the sword found me.”
