I was stationed with Elliott (he in the Army and I in the Navy) during the fifties with U.S. Eucom (United States European Command), Frankfurt and then Paris. We were close friends. In later years, I became aware that he is a well known producer and have enjoyed many of his films. I have wondered over the years where he is and was very pleased to have discovered this website. I am hopeful that we can reconnect at some point.
