Elmore Leonard in Hollywood Tour

Presenting a new literary bus adventure…

Debuts November 10, 2018

You know the work (Get Shorty, 52 Pick-Up, Jackie Brown, 3:10 To Yuma). Now get to know the man.

For 33 years, Gregg Sutter was author Elmore Leonard’s loyal researcher and assistant (“Elmore’s Legs” - The New Yorker), gathering the reference material and rich visual descriptions that made you feel like you were right there inside Elmore’s stories and their film adaptations.

And this November on a brand new bus adventure, Gregg Sutter is taking us back in time to tell the unusual story of Elmore Leonard in Hollywood, a revealing portrait of a commuting screenwriter who took big paychecks and constant indignities with head held high, because it meant he could go home to Detroit and write his books.

Then suddenly, with Get Shorty, Hollywood finally “got” Elmore, and Gregg Sutter was right there to tell you what it felt like. Rich with oddball characters, cool locales and creative insights you won’t find anywhere else, this tour is a must for Elmore Leonard super-fans or folks who just love Get Shorty and Jackie Brown.

The cast includes: Randolph Scott, Felicia Farr, Glenn Ford, Van Heflin, Paul Newman, Martin Ritt, Ryan O’Neal, Burt Lancaster, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Menahem Golan, Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman, Bruce Willis, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, John Travolta, Danny Devito, George Clooney, Jennifer Lopez, Robert Deniro, James Woods, Bridget Fonda, Michael Keaton and Dennis Farina.
