AL is Alan Ladd Jr.

BY is Bud Yorkin

JP is Jerry Perenchio

But who is RF?

Wish I could have been there while they were sculpting this masterpiece! Smile

This was posted before and we figured out all the initials, but I forgot. I will look to see who R.F. is.

Sorry for the repetition - possibly before my time...

R possibly stands for Robin, who's referenced in the notes, but can't find any Robin in the IMDB cast & crew list. No biggie if you can't find out - thanks for trying! Smile

Yeah, that is what I was thinking, and I could have sworn someone pointed out who they were, but I can not find it referenced here. There were many uncredited people working on the film including Harrison Ford's brother Terrence. This seems like it has to be someone at Tandem (later to become the Blade Runner Partnership). The only other members I know of from there were Norman Lear (who really had nothing to do with the film), and Sir Run Run Shaw with his son Harold. None of which match the initials Wink. Oh well. I will look at some of my notes to see anyone who might match up, but I searched all of IMDB for any Robin that might have worked on other films, and found no one that matches even close.

Andy - all the initials except RF are accounted for (see what I wrote beneath the page scan in the first post). I'm looking into the last one...

Bingo - Robin French.

I couldn't find out anything on Robin - most likely one of the former Tandem Productions executives.

This has been out since 2013, but a buddy on Reddit just shared it with me - it's been picked up and reposted on about 50 blogs. Apparently very popular in the Geekosphere, lol.

Yeah, I saw the info and remembered reading it before. The name Robin French rings a bell as well. I seem to remember one of the names in question before was Alan Ladd Jr. which was figured out rather easily IIRC.

Thanks for the update.
