He was the executive producer on TWOK which, oddly enough, despite the word "executive" is "outranked" by the producer. Robert Sallin was the producer.
That's a little misleading. As producer, Sallin had a more hands-on job and was reponsible for a lot of the decisions made for the movie, but as Executive Producer, Harve Bennett was his boss. I would guess that Bennett got more involved in Star Trek III because he wrote it too.
That's true for TWOK. But, in general, the top dog on a movie production -- save for the studio execs, of course -- is the producer and not the executive producer. Which is why I thought it odd that Bennett was the latter and not the former. Heck, executive producer titles are routinely handed out to people who had nothing to do with the actual production of the film at all, like people who just put up financing.
