> Spurred by your comments about adaptations of his work, I skimmed through the IMDb. Seems there are quite a lot more than two:
> Hombre (1967)
> Valdez Is Coming (1971)
> Get Shorty (1995)
> Jackie Brown (1997)
> Out of Sight (1998)
> I left out movies he wrote directly for the screen. In any case, there are a lot more bad movies than I was expecting to find, so besides being responsible for inspiring some great adaptations, his name in the credits isn't much of a barometer for success.

I understand that Get Shorty is widely regarded as the first good movie based on Leonard. I've not seen either of the two earlier ones that you named, so I reserve judgment.

This type of insight is EXACTLY why you need me on your show. SO DOOOOO IT.
