Best Answer

Yes. Former Cowboys wide receiver Pete Gent (1964-1968) wrote a novel/autobiography in 1973 entitled North Dallas 40. The main characters in the book were a quarterback and wide receiver of a professional football team. It is believed that the quarterback was modeled after Don Meredith and the wide receiver after Gent. The movie was released in 1979 and Gent wrote the screenplay.

The Cowboys headquarters were never on Forest Lane. The original Cowboys HQ was at 4425 N Central Expressway in Dallas. In 1964, they moved a few blocks north to 5738 N Central Expressway. In 1966, they moved even further north to 6116 N Central Expressway (the same building as the Playboy Club) where they remained until relocating to Valley Ranch in 1985 or '86.
