Gene Roddenberry on the Set of Star Trek...
From Jake Ehrlich to Star Trek
The hand-signed photo from Gene Roddenberry to Jake "The Master" Ehrlich reads:
Greatest writing compliment ever received – "333 Montgomerey Steet" review which accused me of stealing the dialog from Ehrlich trial records. –Gene Roddenberry
Gene Roddenberry was close friends with Jake Ehrlich Sr. Gene Roddenbery wrote and directed the pilot for 333 Montgomery which starred Deforest Kelly playing the character based on Jake "The Master" Ehrlich.
