    Cigarette Case from Jack Webb. In 1955 actor/director Jack Webb created what some consider one of his finest works, "Pete Kelly's Blues," a hard-hitting drama about a jazz trumpet player fighting gangsters and corruption in 1927 Kansas City. Peggy Lee's performance was nominated for an Oscar, and the film was re-created as a TV series a few years later. Written by Dragnet scribe Dick Breen, the unit production manager on the film was Eric Stacey. In appreciation for his work, Mr. Stacey was given this silver cigarette box inscribed by Mr. Webb and Mr. Breen. It measures 6.25" x 3.25" and is dated 5-20-55. A very rare piece from one of television's most recognized figures. Acquired from Eric Stacey, Jr., son of Mr. Stacey.
