    Mr. Henson has a long list of movies to his credit. While he makes the occasional acting performance, he primarily is a stunt artist and coordinator. To his stunt credits, he has no less than six James Bond movies, both Star Wars: A New Hope and Return of the Jedi, Willow, Temple of Doom, An American Werewolf in London, and countless others. In A New Hope, Mr. Henson played a Stormtrooper on screen. He also played a Stormtrooper in ROTJ, as well as an Endor Rebel Commando, Biker Scout (the one Luke hijacks a speeder bike from mid-chase) and a Skiff Guard. Judging from his comments in a letter to me, I'm guessing he is the skiff guard pictured in the post below.


    You can check out Mr. Henson's IMDB filmography here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0378204/



    Mr. Henson is a relatively new signer. He is known for signing items sent to him, and sometimes includes a form letter describing his Star Wars work. What few results there are have been very quick…..taking less than three weeks. So get off a response now! :)

    Re: TBS Autograph Project 051 - Frank Henson (ANH Stormtrooper)

    I received a resposne to day, taking only 26 days. Mr. Henson signed my trading card and two indexes, personalizing all. He also included a form eltter with a short note on the bottom. The letter states what characters he performed:

    Stormtrooper (ANH and ROTJ)
    a Rebel Commando who storms the Shield Generator with Han
    Biker Scout (the one Luke throws from the speeder-bike after hijacking the bike)
    Skiff Guard

    Regarding the Skiff Guard he states that he is seen fighting with Mark (Hamill)and is pictured in one of the "early books." I can think of only two vintage books that had photos of the movie: The insert in the novelization, and the ROTJ Storybook. After flipping through teh Storybok, sure enough there is a picture of Luke on the Sail Barge facing off with a human guard (one I'd never seen before now :p ) and Klaatu. I think it's a pretty safe bet the human is Frank Henson. See picture below for reference.

    I've updated the above description to reflect his other roles.

    I got a great success form Frank a couple of months ago taking approx 2 weeks. I may have to write to him again though with the sail barge guard image. For some reason he signed my photo twice (maybe he though the fisrt one wasnt clear enough).

    My response came today. He signed my items and included one of his own, plus the letter. The photo he included is about 2.5" X 4.25". It is low quality but an interesting photo just the same. The letter is also low quality and almost unreadable. both are nice gestures and i appreciate that he included them.

    26 days

    Take note of the "Rebel Commando" photo and the location that he chose to identify himself in the photo. The photo he included is the last thumb.

    I got a very nice success yesterday. I received all four photos signed with a short note on each. I also received a signed letter. It is a photocopied letter, but he did sign it, so that is a nice success. He also included a short note about his current working as well as his son. He did update his address so I will post that when I get home.
