Elmore Leonard's Justified


Recommended Posts

I watched all 13 episodes of the first season of Justified this week; great modern version of a Cowboy Classic, and real decent entertainment.

 

In one espisode, the Marshal drawls a line that I am sure came from a Western, but I just can't place it:

 

"It seemed like a good idea at the time".....

 

Where did that come from? Eastwood?

Steve McQueen in Magnificent Seven when he was askd by Eli Wallach why they came to Mexico. He told the story of the guy who took off his clothes and sat in a cactus patch. When asked why he responded " It seemed like a good idea at the time"

 

This is definately true. I think you have a winner here, but I also don't think it was the only time that line was used in a movie. ^_^;)

I think Tom Selleck has a similar line in "Crossfire Trail". -- GIT
