"Something to Live For"
is an episode of Have Gun - Will Travel starring
Richard Boone, Rayford Barnes, and Nancy Hadley.
Paladin crabbily takes a rich and essentially suicidal alcoholic into his protection while trekking the north country.
Paladin uses a quotation originating with Amelia Earhart!
During this episode, Paladin quotes Amelia Earhart, which is historically impossible, since she lived from 1907 to 1937. Near the end of this episode he says, "Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things."
But the original full quote is: "Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear."
I wonder why the writers did this, since they surely must have known that it would or could be checked. Kind of strange. Does anyone know whether this sort of thing occurs sometimes in other shows?
