I just discovered both members of this old songwriting partnership are still alive: Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennett. They wrote hits for Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Cliff Richard, Dean Martin and Elvis Presley amongst others. Both of them were born in 1918.
Here is an interview with Tepper from Elvis' official site: http://www.elvis.com...out_elvis.shtml

Sid Tepper dies at 96. http://www.miamihera...le19457814.html
