Movie synopsis
A pure western in which a lawmen tracks a criminal, TRUE GRIT, based on Charles Portis' novel, reunited John Wayne with director Henry Hathaway (THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER). Wayne is crotchety U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn, who would rather stay home than chase criminals. He heeds the call, though, when fourteen year-old Mattie Ross (Kim Darby) calls on him to avenge her father's death at the hands of a man who has escaped into Indian territory. Glen Campbell is a Texas ranger who accompanies them for his own reasons. Wayne reprised the role six years later in ROOSTER COGBURN.

Watch an actor change into icon!

When John Wayne won the best actor award for this 1969 film, he said: "I should have put on this eye patch 35 years ago!". Many say the award was really for a career of performances. You be the judge! The Blu ray version is the best format I have seen this film in. Very high picture quality considering 42 year old source, but what makes this version really stand out is the DTS Master Audio that adds a new dimension if you have a decent surround sound system. The Coen brothers recently made a fine version of the Portis book as well. I recently read that the Duke's eye patch is going up for auction in October. Maybe Jeff Bridges will be lucky enough to win it. But when you say "Rooster Cogburn", you know who we mean, Pilgrim!

"That's the thing about rats, Baby Sister."

"You gotta kill 'em or leave 'em alone." --Rooster Cogburn.

This is the movie that finally earned John Wayne a long overdue Oscar for Best Actor.

A teenage girl's father is robbed and murdered. She enlists the aid of Rooster Cogburn, the meanest Federal Marshall she can find, to track down the killer and bring him to justice.

This western has it all: Great story, beautiful cinematography, good music, and best of all, old John Wayne playing the role he was born to play.

Be sure to see John Wayne in "Red River" and "The Searchers" if you enjoy True Grit.

True Grit (2000,DVD)

There is no one like the Duke.. He is great in this favorite of many. Kim Darby plays an excellent part & you can't leave out Robert Duvall, Dennis Hopper, J Noble Daggett, Chun Lee & General Sterling Price (the cat)! (Great supporting actors) John Wyane plays a drunken, uncouth & totally fearless one-eyed U.S. Marshal as Rooster Cogburn.. He has TRUE GRIT! Rooster Cogburn & the Lady is another great one with Katharine Hepburn..

The Original Stands Alone as the Best

I first saw TRUE GRIT when it first was released and liked it. The Duke was alreaady kidding himself and his audiences about himself and his sense of humor shines through in every scene. I wanted to see it again before catching the new version starring Jeff Bridges but that didn't happen. Just as well. I bought the DVD and watched iot soon after seeing the Coen Brothers' version and stick to my guns that the original is the better of the two. Remakes when there is nothing to add make no sense to me except for the profit motive of the producers; for the viewers, there is little. How many bad old movies will Steve Martin remake before they put him out to pasture? Did they really think that Steve Martin could improve on Peter Sellers in THE PINK PANTHER? Not a chance.
Even the part of Ned Pepper, played by the talented actor Barry Pepper in this unneccesary remake of TRUE GRIT, was mostly him doing an imitation of Robert Duval who played the part in the original. Except for a man riding around in a bear skin, I found nothing new and interesting about this remake; except that my wallet is about $30 lighter. Bridges, for his part, fashioned a somewhat new character out of what he had to work with, but for much of the film, I didn't uinderstand what he was saying, he was mumbling so much. So, now that they've gotten Bridges to try his hand at besting John Wayne and failing, why not remake "THE LONGEST DAY" and let him play all the parts, even that of Red Buttons, whose character overshot the drop zone and wound up hanging from a church steeple by his parachute. Enough already with sub-par remakes.

...it's True Grit!!! What else do you need to know?

"Fill your hand, you son of a bitch!" With out a doubt the most fun John Wayne had on set, and it shows in his Academy Award winning performance. If you've never seen it, there a small galaxy of stars featured, from Bobby Duvall to a young Dennis Hopper this film shines.
