Jack Webb sends a typed letter with thanks for comments about Dragnet.
Typed Letter Signed: "Jack Webb", 1p, 5¾x7¾. No place, 1973 July 13. To Mrs. Merry Carol Manuel, West Monroe, Louisiana. In full: "Thank you for your recent letter and your kind comments about DRAGNET. As requested, I am enclosing an autographed picture." [Photo not present.] 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. Paper clip impressions at upper left. Fine condition.
