Jack Webb signs a document with the National Broadcasting Company about an unnamed TV program.
Document signed: "Jack/Webb", 2p, 8½x11 onion skin paper. North Hollywood, California, 1956 July 30. Letter of agreement referencing an agreement of 1956 July 3 between Mark VII, Ltd., and the National Broadcasting Company concerning production of 30 episodes, including pilot, for an unnamed new TV program. Signed on page 2. Dragnet, one of the most famous crime shows in television history, began on radio in 1949, with Jack Webb (1920-1982) as Sergeant Joe Friday, a hardworking Los Angeles policeman. Dragnet and Webb came to NBC TV in 1951; the half-hour show went off the air in 1959. In 1967, Dragnet returned to the airwaves with its suspenseful theme by Walter Schumann, its trademark dialogue ("Just the facts, ma'am"), the epilogue providing the fate of those arrested, its ending disclaimer ("The story you have just seen is true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent."), and the chiseling of "Mark VII," Webb's production company, at the conclusion of the show. Although the revised version only ran until 1971, Dragnet's unique style made it a classic. When Jack Webb died in 1982, the Los Angeles Police Department flew its flags at half-mast. Staple holes in upper left. Otherwise, fine condition.
