Man from Santa Monica, California,
- Matthew Conrad
Not only is he a talented actor, he one hell of a director. he make you feel the pain the characters are feeling in the gritty 1950's Los Angeles setting of dragnet and when you watch Pete Kelly Blues you feel like you're thee and the music takes you away from all you're trouble and you can also imagine smelling the smoke billowing in the air in the club scene. That's How Jack Webb worked in my own opinion. In The D.I you feel like you're with those soldiers when Gunnery Sgt. Jim Moore is yelling at them and if you fought in the wars and had drill Sargent like Moore you have a better connection to the characters and you under stood what they felt. Mr. Webb may be gone but his memory will always live on through his movie and television works and his life work being persevered by Mr Dan. Moyer with the Jack Webb Archives. if i could talk to him i would thank him for many hours of entertainment he gave us over the the years we had him. So to you Mr Webb Thank You
Jack Webb - TV Pioneer

One of the original creative forces in television, he created, acted, produced, directed, wrote for Dragnet, bringing it to TV from radio in the 40's. His face and voice became icons and the Dragnet theme is still recognizable to modern audiences along with his catchphrase, "Just the facts, Ma'am". He went on to create other successful shows such as Adam 12. Starring in several acclaimed films, he showed unexpected other sides of his creative personality: his love of jazz in Pete Kelly's Blues, respect for newspaper reporters in -30-, even humor in The Last Time I Saw Archie. Jack was a true original and Dragnet was a fore-runnner of all the successful police procedurals that followed.
