Working for Mike Todd
By Glenda Jensen
Midori Tsuji was a fascinating and beautiful woman. I was in awe of her. She was a person very much in command of herself. She took care of everything for Mike and, occasionally, for Elizabeth. I wanted to be like her.
Working for Todd-AO
By Dan Leimeter
Sydney Pollack was always a joy to work with, and it was thrilling when Barbra Streisand did a number of her films with us. I admit to being a bit slack-jawed when I met these actor/comedians whose work I particularly loved: Vincent Price, Sid Caesar, Danny DeVito, and Dick Van Dyke
Walter Siegmund's Todd-AO History
By Thomas Hauerslev

Todd-AO could be considered to have begun with the fateful meeting in 1952 between Mike Todd and Dr. O'Brien at the Rochester (NY) airport, where I was the silent witness. Who would have thought then that movies would again become so popular and lucrative? Did Todd-AO make the difference? It would be nice to think so!
