From KungFuCinema.com: “RECLAIMING THE BLADE, a new documentary on the history of the sword featuring legendary fight choreographer Bob Anderson, as well as many other film professionals, historians and experts on the sword, has recently been released to iTunes and is coming to DVD on July 7th. Perhaps the coolest part about this documentary from an action film lover’s perspective is an exclusive interview with Bob Anderson, an Olympic fencer and British actor who began his film career as a stunt double for Errol Flynn in the 1950s and went on to become one of Hollywood’s top fight choreographers with recent credits that include the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN. Other film folk featured include actors Viggo Mortensen and Karl Urban, NARNIA and LOTR conceptual artist John Howe, and director/effects supervisor of film prop and special effects company Weta Workshop.”
Bob Anderson was the stunt coordinator for both The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian. This will probably be well worth checking out for those of you who love sword history and stunt fighting.
