The Love Poetry Of Jerry Orbach

The LAW & ORDER star left a love poem for his wife every single day. Celebrate Valentine's Day with some Lenny Briscoe love.

Jerry Orbach would leave home early in the morning to shoot movies and TV shows. Every day before he left he would write out a love poem for his wife, Elaine, who would read it with her coffee.
