“An associate producer,” explained Billy Wilder, “is anyone who will associate with a producer.”

Val Lewton, upon reaching the rank of associate producer, was delighted to find himself listed in the studio directory under the abbreviation “ass. prod.”

All of which makes Mack Davidson’s picturesque title card in OH! WHAT A LOVELY WAR! especially apt.
