Did You Know?
As shown on the top of a letter, the address of Jefferson Steel's Hollywood agent Charlie Rosenberg (Charles Durning
) is given as 1453 Wanamaker Street, Los Angeles CA 90228 USA. This street name can be considered a reference to actor-director Sam Wanamaker
who worked with Reynolds (who played Detective Lieutenant John Hawk) on episodes of TV's Hawk
(1966) as well as other TV work. Further, using Wanamaker's name in this address also actually ties Reynolds together with Shakespeare, in that Wanamaker was the Founder of the International Globe Theatre Centre, the project that funded, researched, and built the reconstruction of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre that now operates on the Thames in Bankside, London, not far from where the actual remains of the Globe were found just after Wanamaker's construction had broken ground. It was Wanamaker's life's passion to create a reconstruction of Shakespeare's Globe that would be a fully operational theatre, as well (although, after raising the funding from many fellow actors, directors and producers, and then bringing together the historians and experts to design it, he passed away in 1993, four years before its grand opening).
