True Grit

on 7/15/2007

Disc plays well on my PC. But purchased to watch on my TV. Video quality not very good. scenes keep going from dark to bright and back again. Movie was as I remember but the light -dark- light - dark on and on and on -- too much to take. No thanks. It's Sunday night, I'll be making a call Monday. Read More

Editors Note
Note 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.
Plot Summary
Summary Oscar winning performance by John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn, the one-eyed, eye-patched Deputy Marshal who helps a stubborn, yet resourceful, teenage girl find the murderer of her father.
