083 - Peter Sumner (Lt. Pol Treidum)


Dark Lord of the Typos


Peter Sumner has quite a career in film and on stage. A writer, director, and actor, he has worked on numerous projects since the 1960’s. As far as acting, he has been in countless television shows and movies, appearing most recently in shows like Outriders, Blue Heelers, Snobs, and Jessica. This past year he produced a documentary called Baba’s Birthday, which followed his own son’s journey to India to perform a classic Bedouin play. To Star Wars fans, he is known as Lt. Pol Treidum…an Imperial Officer in A New Hope. He was the one in the control room above the docking bay who says “TK-421…Why aren’t you at your post?” He also gets knocked unconscious by Chewbacca when the door opens. He also appeared in a 1999 Star Wars fan film entitled The Dark Redemption.

You can check out Mr. Sumner’s IMDB page here: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0838891/

His official website is: http://www.petersumner.com/

Mr. Sumner has signed through the mail for years, often including personalized notes. The address below is newer and has had recent success. However, his old agent’s address at Morrisey Mgt has had some unsuccessful results not so long ago (I chalk his up to him spending some time working in England, and then choosing a new agent). As a result, I am not listing his old agent’s address. Results for his new address have turned up successes in less than two months.

Peter Sumner
15 / 71 Avenue Road
Mosman 2088

The POTJ Imperial Officer (with sideburns) bears a passing resemblance to him....but it's not specifically him. I don't remember what picture his Force File had on it...too much work to dig out right now. :p

The Mighty Wookiee
Success today from Mr. Sumner.:eek: He signed my photo and 3 index cards. He wrote one of his lines on an index card as well - "TK421 Do you Copy??"

Used address posted above.
SENT: 3/11/07
RECEIVED: 5/18/07
Hey guys,
I have a question:In SW Widevision card #69,is the imperial officer exactly is Mr.Summer?I saw the other guy's collection and found this:


Here is the ccg image:

A man called Malcom Tierney who played Lt. Shann Childsen also signed on this card.In my success case,Mr.Summer only signed the card front on that widevision #69,the others on card back.So,I think that imperial offcier is him.Now, I'm so confused who is the man exactly is played the imperial officer on that card.

Anyone know?


New Recruit
Hi Bounty CK, The actor in the detention centre (card #69) is indeed Malcolm Tierney playing Lt. Chilsden. Peter Sumner was Pol Treidum in a different control centre, Mr. Sumner possibly just signed all your cards as they were all from a new hope? Still a great success.
I have a couple of Mr. Tierney's signatures, both in the detention centre.
Hope this helps.
