One of them, anyway, as James Earl Jones and David Prowse are still alive.

RIP.

But the "Star Wars" movies were not his first experience with Hollywood. Not by a long shot.

Anderson first coached Hollywood legend Errol Flynn in fencing. He went on to teach scores of stars swordfighting, including Sean Connery and Johnny Depp.

Anderson also directed swordfights in movies including "The Mask of Zorro," "The Princess Bride," and "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy.

Anderson, who died on Sunday, got involved with movie-making after competing in the 1952 Olympics. He placed fifth for England in a team fencing competition.
That's quite an impressive career.

I'm still trying to figure out how he died.

Eye'm the cutest!
So he's basically the Trope Maker for Flynning? Damn man, may the Force be with him always indeed.

He has become one with the Force, may he rest in piece.

:O That's depressing. RIP.

Though, there truly will be a movement in the Force when James Earl Jones finally passes on. Like millions of fanboys all crying out in anguish at once...

That's what I thought it was before I clicked the link. Cue preemptive Big "NO!"...

However, when JEJ finally does die, do you title the discussion thread "Vader Dies" or "Mufasa Dies...for real"?

And Hayden Christenson

Seriously though, wonderful, wonderful swordsman and choreographer. He will be missed.

To cheer everyone up, here's the original West Country (not Scottish, as erroneously described in the video) speech of David Prowse before he was dubbed over by James Earl Jones.

Prowse? I know a Prowse.

[up] Oh Thank God For James Earl Jones then, that'd have never worked.

I don't know, I quite like the idea of Darth Farmer swigging cider in the fields of Somerset.

That would be wonderfully random, but James Earl Jones' voice is just so right.
I feel guilty for being relieved when I open the thread and discovered that it's not about James Earl Jones.

Just awesome like that
Y'know, I never knew he was involved with The Princess Bride. That's pretty cool to learn.
Insert witty and clever quip here.

I like to think that he's in a better place, teaching the Crocodile Hunter how to properly wield his stick.
