Roger Brucker and film producer Robert Halmi, Sr., chairman of RHI Entertainment, Inc., in February, 2008. The pair met in 1954, when Halmi was a photojournalist assigned to cover the C-3 Expedition, which became the subject of The Caves Beyond. Some of his photos are in the book. Halmi later went on to become a prolific, award-winning producer of movies and television mini-series.
