   Gene Case: Jack and Helmut would do an ad... 'extremely, ambitiously, perceived - extremely high minded.' And then hand it over to an unknown copywriter to work on the body copy... '"Disraeli... something, something... England ruled the world." And Jack said, "Write this ad." And I said, "Who the hell is Disraeli?" So I ran over to the library... I didn't dare ask "What do you have in mind?"'
