ELMORE LEONARD (October 11, 1925 – August 20, 2013) is one of our greatest American writers. His contributions to popular literature, which are largely set within the Western and Crime genres, are some of the most well known and critically acclaimed of their kind. In addition to his best selling novels, his unique brand of prose and storytelling style was perfect for adaptions onto the silver screen. In memory of Mr. Leonard we’ve put together a collection of clips and trailers from some of our favorite films based on his work.
