Oh no, that's so sad. I just sent him his personal Blade Runner ID card a couple of months ago. He sent me back a really nice handwritten thank you note in return.

God bless and RIP. Sad

Sad news at any age, but certainly unexpected. He contributed more to Blade Runner in its initial stages than many may realize. - R13

Mr. Paull was a great guy. He liked cops and wanted, in some regards, to be one. He was made an honorary cop in a number of places and once in a while did informal security (by packing a gun and badge) at celebrity events.

I was able to get him an honorary police officer badge and ID from my old agency, and here is a picture of him holding the Bladerunner badge and ID set I sent him for the 25th Anniversary of Bladerunner. He flew down to L.A. for that event.



For what it's worth, he told me that there WAS a badge in the ID wallet and that he had one although never screen seen. I asked specifically and he answered assertively.

Rest in Peace, Mr. Paull.
