I am seeking the full name and correct spelling of a former motion picture director (or perhaps a producer) whose last name Lubbich, or something similar. I have tried a number of spellings in Google but come up with nothing.
Back in the 1960s our Ambassador in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, divorced his wife and married the widow of a famous former Hollywood director or producer. At the time, the name sounded familiar, but now my memory has faded. I am in the process of writing a not-for-publication story of my life as a Foreign Service Officer for the interest of my children and grandchildren. I want to make certain that I have the correct name.
