There's a long shot in The Untouchables, surrounding the murder in the elevator. Greg Lundsgaard is credited as the operator on the film, but he says there were several ops, and he was on another set when that portion of the film was shot.

Given that it's a Brian De Palma film, my first thought was that it could be Larry McConkey, since he's done many of De Palma's other long shots. He's listed as having worked on the film in Serena Ferrara's book. Anyone have the answer?

Pffft ... sorry. Didn't search here before posting: http://www.steadicam...?showtopic=1227

Janice Arthur worked on the film too, that could have been her work.
