Academy Awards 1969 - Best Actor: John Wayne
An undeniably vivid, exceedingly well directed (by veteran Henry Hathaway) frontier tale that "tells it like it was." Full Review
If I had to pick only one True Grit movie to take to the proverbial desert island, it'd be Hathaway's, Wayne's, Ballard's and, while we're at it, Elmer Bernstein's... Full Review
Somehow it comes off like a TV celebrity roast. Full Review
5 stars out of 5 -- [A] smartly written, beautifully photographed piece of cinema history.
It isn't just a movie about the ways of the vanishing WEst; it's about the ways of the vanishing Western. -- Grade: B+
4 stars out of 5 -- [Wayne] simply gives us his best late-career Wayne, just with an eyepatch. And yes, he's darn good at it.
Rating: 4/4 -- One of the glories of True Grit is that it recognizes Wayne's special presence. Full Review
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.
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.
