Rest in peace Elmore Leonard,acclaimed, popular, successful and quite prolific writer (forty-five novels) who died today at age 87 in his Bloomfield Hills, Michigan home. He began writing Westerns in the 1950s, then Leonard refined and modernized crime fiction for our lifetime.  Above is an original  book cover of his source material for one of my alltime favorite films, Jackie Brown. Although many elements were changed by screenwriters Roger Avary and Quentin Tarantino (also Brown's director,) according to Wikipedia, Leonard loved its screenplay, considering it the very best of the twenty-six screen adaptations of his novels and short stories.
