Lee Erwin

Lee Erwin (died June 4, 1972) was a television writer from the 1950s to the 1970s. Erwin wrote for Mr. & Mrs. North, The Millionaire, Have Gun, Will Travel, The New Adventures of Charlie Chan and many other 1950s and 1960s TV shows. He is probably best known for his Star Trek episode "Whom Gods Destroy", his two part Tarzan episode "The Deadly Silence", and his episode of The Lieutenant, "To Set It Right", which was never aired because the subject matter, racial prejudice, was taboo for entertainment television at the time. This episode can be viewed at The Paley Center for Media. His last work for television was the script for the All in the Family episode "Writing the President" (1971).

Famous quotes containing the word lee:

    I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the back yard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.... Mockingbirds don’t do one thing but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corncribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.
    —Harper Lee (b. 1926)
