A bit more on Mr. Muir. For anyone who grew up in the 1970's and 1980's, Brian's work is most certainly part of your film experiences. Although most famous for being the man who sculpted the Darth Vader Helmut & Armor, based on the original illustrations by Ralph McQuarrie, Muir worked on Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Willow, Young Sherlock Holmes, The Princess Bride, Krull, Superman and many, many more. This is the man who carved the Ark of the Covenant, sculpted the beating heart in Temple of Doom and created the Cliffs of Insanity in The Princess Bride. Signed by Brian in my presence on March 17, 2017.
