I just mailed a card to Mr. Browning. His work certainly had a powerful influence on me.

I didn't have a card handy so I just wrote him a letter...

Dear Mr. Browning,
- You don't know me but I wanted to write and thank you for your many contributions to diving entertainment.
- From the extreme breath holding scenes as Creature from the Black Lagoon to the weekly Sea Hunt Episodes, your's were the best underwater acting and directing I have ever seen. I'm 67 years old and enjoy fixing and diving vintage diving equipment. And, I watch re-runs of your work on TV. I've seen them all many times but it never gets tiring.
- So once again, Thank You for your legacy of Great Underwater Shows!
Sincerely, Eben Brown
The Freedom and Simplicity of Vintage Equipment and
Vintage Diving Technique are Why I Got Back Into Diving.
