Tough Guy Actor Jerry Orbach Was Actually A Romantic

Tough guy actor Jerry Orbach was actually a real romantic according to his wife. Every single day he left her with a poem that he wrote that would just melt any heart. His wife, Elaine, had just recently passed away as well. However, she leaves us with this wonderful new book from Simon & Shuster of wonderful poems.

Orbach was best remembered as the tough guy detective, Lennie Biscoe, on NBC's LAW & ORDER and as the dad in DIRTY DANCING. But Orbach was also a talented New York stage actor as well. This new book of poems is a great remembrance of this multi-talented actor. It's more than worth a look. Highly recommended ++++
