This is a special page to highlight the man behind the test footage of the prototype Boba Fett armor/helmet for the film The Empire Strikes Back...he was also responsible for the very first public appearance of Boba Fett at the San Anselmo County Fair Parade in 1978...a few months before the release of the Star Wars Holiday Special where Boba Fett made his first appearance in animated form.
