The Director, John Cromwell in a letter said, As I remember, I was spellbound by a cameraman named Roy Hunt. I used him on several pictures because he was so interested in everything. He was a loquacious Southerner and as mechanically inventive as anyone I ever saw. Almost every week he would appear with a new camera cover or an ingenious camera dolly for getting through small doors 1. The letter was dated October 15th 1973. Glendon Allvine, associate producer of the film, Silver Streak. I wanted the best and I got one of the best cameramen in Hollywood, J.Roy Hunt. He had just finished Flying Down To Rio. Mr. Hunt has a genius for things mechanical and electrical and I knew he would be fascinated with this newest speed marvel. Because the unpainted stainless steel Zephyr is itself a light reflector and the photographing of this train presented problems. Director, Edward Dmytryk who worked with Roy Hunt on Crossfire and The Juggler, He had gotten into pictures about Year One by building his own camera, and he had never stopped inventing. Half the improvements on RKOs special sound camera, the best in the business at that time, were of his design. But, best of all he wasone hell of a photographer, and one of the sweetest men ever created. Director, Joseph Losey who worked with JRH on The Dividing Line, I loved working with Roy Hunt.
