This is a hail mary... and maybe I've missed the obvious quote or reference in any kind of docu-series or book or the like... (I have not been around quite as long in the history nay PRE-history of THERPF.... so this is basically an apology for this kind of post). But, for the sake of these beloved props..... If ANYONE here: *happens* to know ANYONE from original production with roots in OHIO who might have worked on *PROPS* OR *COSTUME* or *STOP MOTION* for ANH at ILM... PM me.

That is all for now.

I'm not seeing any sign on a quick search, but... interpreting "Ohio" broadly, I did find an ANH crewmember originally from the UK who, at least as of late 2019, resides in Ohio, Illinois! So you might say he put down his roots in Ohio. ;)

[Though granted, I don't think he was with ILM.]

I'm very intrigued, this is such a daunting and cryptic post!
Maybe he never knew his father and his mom, knowing his love for Star Wars back in the day, made up some story: "your daddy left us in Ohio and went to work on that Star Wars movie you love so much". Much like those moms that tell tall tales to their children about absent fathers being war heroes and spies, lol. :lol:

You mean my father wasn't really The Desert Fox!

“What did daddy do on Star Wars?”

He ah… he made um… props? Yeah, props.

“He left us just to make props?”

Oh… oh no, sweetie, he… also made costumes…

*tear rolls down cheek*

And that stop motion that you love – that was all him too!

*sniff* "Okay... I guess that’s cool.”
