Rating: 6/10 -- A sort of controlled experiment in what happens when two completely incompatible movie stars occupy the same physical space. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Wayne gives it what he can, and so does Hepburn, but there's just too much going against them. Full Review
Los Angeles Free Press
Rating: 1/4 -- The whole movie seems so contrived, so obviously a vehicle for its stars and for their former, happier roles, that finally we just get depressed. Talent shouldn't be thrown around like this. Full Review
Rating: B- -- Not much to crow about. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: B- -- For those on the hunt for something agreeable, feature two acting legends, there are worse ways to spend 108 minutes. After all it's not every day one gets to see Katharine Hepburn man a Gatling gun. Full Review
Rating: C -- A tired, formualic Western that reahashes elements of True Grit, John Wayne's Oscar-winning film, and The African Queen (Hepburn and Bogey), but it's the only teaming of the iconic Duke and Hepburn, so you may want to see it as a tribute to aging stars Full Review
John Wayne reprises his role as Rooster Cogburn, the eye-patched, whiskey-guzzling deputy marshall from TRUE GRIT. While on the trail of a gang of outlaws led by his old partner Hawk (a truly villainous Richard Jordan), Rooster teams up with bible-thumping missionary Eula Goodnight (Katherine Hepburn) to avenge the murder of her father by the gang. The chemistry between Wayne and Hepburn is palpable as barbs fly between the grumpy gunman and feisty missionary, and Strother Martin delivers a sparkling cameo.
Rooster Cogburn, hero of the popular film "True Grit", is back in the saddle. This time he join forces with a vengeful spinster to search for and punish the outlaw who killed her father. Between chasing bandits and arguing, the two also find time to fall in love.
