True Grit (1969)
|A U.S. Marshal helps a young girl track down her father's murderers.|
Editor's NoteA 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.

The Duke at his Best!6/28/2008
If you like John Wayne, you'll like this one. A true classic!
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.
