ww2dbaseLeslie G. Elliott was from Hollywood, California, United States. Although he wanted to be a pilot, by the time he joined the United States Navy, he was already 26 years of age, which was considered too old for flight training. Having some experience working for a photography shop in Hollywood, he opted to attend the US Navy Photography School at Pensacola, Florida, United States. He also spent some time under Commander John Ford, receiving motion picture training. After the war, he left the US Navy for some years, re-joining in 1948. He filmed weapons testing at China Lake, California; X-15 rocket aircraft flights; and the pre-Mercury Cape Canaveral rocket tests. During the Vietnam War, he was placed in charge of the filming of training films for counter-insurgency air warfare.
