Papers of E. Jack Neuman, a television and motion picture writer-producer, primarily comprised of files on motion pictures, television series, and made-for-TV movies which Neuman wrote and/or produced. Made up of scripts and drafts, correspondence, production reports, and schedules, the collection demonstrates well the background research and social content for which Neuman is known. This is particularly true of files on his television adaptation of Albert Speer's memoirs, Inside the Third Reich, and of the files on Mr. Novak (NBC) and Sam Benedict (NBC), both of which are also useful for studying network censorship, program concept development and sales, and ratings. The collection also includes extensive files on made-for-TV movies -- a genre for which Neuman is partially responsible. Present are files on The Blue Knight (NBC), Kate McShane (CBS), Night Games (NBC), and Police Story (NBC), all of which eventually became series. Files on the latter three series are included in the collection. Of Neuman's other television work, the collection contains files on Dr. Kildare (NBC), Philip Marlowe (ABC), Petrocelli (NBC), The Richard Boone Show (NBC), The Twilight Zone (CBS), and The Untouchables (ABC). Production files and scripts relate to seven produced and eight unproduced motion pictures. There are also three boxes of general correspondence, appointment books, schedules, financial records, and miscellany.
