Producer Frederick Brisson began his career as an associate producer and PR man on his father Carl Brisson's last two films in Britain. When the elder Brisson moved to Los Angeles, young Brisson followed and there opened an advertising and talent agency. Following military service in the U.S. Army Air Force--where he rose to lieutenant colonel as chief of radio propaganda and a special consultant to the Secretary of War--Brisson became a prominent Broadway producer of the 1950s specializing in major musicals and plays. Later he produced some of the screen versions of his plays such as The Pajama Game (1957). Occasionally, he also produced other films like Under the Yum Yum Tree (1963).
