Conversations with the Queen
Unknown Source

Dean Semler, cinematographer for "Dances With Wolves," is one of those select Americans who got to meet Queen Elizabeth before her current visit to the United States.

Semler's account, as reported in the International Express and quoted by Chuck Conconi of the Washington Post:

"I said I was director of photography, to which she replied, 'Oh, how terribly interesting. Actually, I have a brother-in-law who is a photographer.'

"I replied, 'Oh, how terribly coincidental. I have a brother-in-law who's a queen.' She moved on without saying another word."
