I'm curious if anyone knows why the contributions of Robert Sallin to TWOK are almost always ignored and never discussed.
Contrary to popular belief, Harve Bennett was not the producer on TWOK -- he didn't assume that role until TSFS. He was the executive producer on TWOK which, oddly enough, despite the word "executive" is "outranked" by the producer. Robert Sallin was the producer.
Yet we hear all about Harve Bennett and Nicholas Meyer, but virtually nothing about Robert Sallin.
So... who is Robert Sallin? What was his role with TWOK? Why was he not connected with any other Trek film? And why is he never discussed at all, in any of the many books or documentaries that have been made about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the film?
Help satisfy my curiosity!
