The Straight Story

Horton Foote Has Died-- NY Times March 4, 2009

Stanley Fish in
Sunday’s New York Times
on “Redemption,”
by George Herbert:

“… the final line provides an answer with a compact swiftness that is literally breathtaking: ‘Who straight, “Your suit is granted,” said, and died.’ (‘Straight’ here means ‘immediately and without detour’ and describes the movement and pace of the line it introduces.)”

— Dr. Hunter S. Thompson

“I’m a rolling stone from Texas”
— Theme song in  
“Secondhand Lions”
(starring Robert Duvall, 2003)

Foote was not associated with
“Secondhand Lions” (which I
saw for the first time last night)
 but has worked many times
with Duvall.
