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.
