Get well soon Bob Burns!

Bob Burns is best known for his collection of movie props, particularly from horror and science-fiction movies. He has also had numerous smaller acting roles in movies as one of the last Hollywood Gorilla suit actors. His collection, Bob's Basement, is a real treasure featuring props and memorablia from the past 70 years of Imagi-Movies, including the legendary Time Machine used in George Pal's classic movie.

He suffered a major heart attack last weekend. According to Bob's wife Kathy, he received immediate medical attention. The surgery was successful, and Bob is resting comfortably in the hospital.

Get well soon, Bob!
