After some movie work together, Alexander Fisher became Peter Sellers‘ favorite sound technician. In his own productions Peter Sellers eventually refused to work with anyone else in sound. On a photograph from Peter Sellers to Alexander the dedication says: “Why, why, why, can’t we have some silence please”. Which was Sash’s catch phrase and how he was greeted on the set. And further on: “To Sash, with grateful thanks for another wonderful job – Peter Sellers”.

During his career Alexander Fisher worked with many movie stars, who gave him presents of dedication, among others Gina Lollobrigida, Elizabeth Taylor.

Alexander Fisher was an early member of the trade union The Association of Cine-Technicians, one of the early front runners of the Broadcasting, Entertainment, Cinematograph and Theatre Union.

His membership card from 1937 shows him as the 100th member, employed at Pinewood Studios.
