I posted about the various David Lee's earlier, but today I managed to find a birth year for one of the David Lee's we were still missing: the Oscar-winning sound mixer on films like 'The Matrix' and 'Muriel's Wedding': it's 1958. Daddy DVD found his CV posted somewhere online, which contained an e-mail address. Subsequently, I dropped him a line explaining our predicament, and I just got a response:

Quoting David Lee:
Quote:
yeah sure Tim...
06/09/58

regards

David

So there you have it. I'll re-iterate our "David Lee"-findings up until now:

Production sound mixer David Lee (1938), Oscar-winning sound mixer on 'Chicago' and 'X-Men':

- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0497112/
- http://www.playbackonline.ca/articles/magazine/20081027/lee.html

British composer David Lee (1926), 'Adam Adamant Lives!':

- http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0497113/

Production sound mixer David Lee (1958), Oscar-winning sound mixer on 'The Matrix' and 'Muriel's Wedding':

- CV (with filmography) here, birth year verified by e-mail from David Lee himself, as described above.

There are still more namesakes out there, like the art director David Lee ('Lara Croft: Tomb Raider', 'Lost in Space') or the David Lee who's one of the creators/writers/producers of 'Frasier'. As of yet, no birth years have been found for them - any help is much appreciated... Also see this thread.

I still can't edit the first 4 posts in this thread.  My request, for the editing restrictions to be removed, has gone unread.  You guys can continue posting here if you like but, there isn't much I can do with the information. 
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
The Centauri learned this lesson once.
We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.
