True Grit depends on that simple, no doubt reprehensible (at least emphatic- ally illiberal), irrepressibly amiable star image the cinema is supposed to have out- grown. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- Far too often for True Grit to quite overcome, [Wayne's] larger-than-life turn flirts with, if not outright topples into, self-parody. Full Review

By growing old disgracefully as the fat, swaggering Rooster Cogburn, Wayne proves he can act -- and solves his own senior-citizen problem in one master stroke. Full Review

Somehow it comes off like a TV celebrity roast. Full Review

It isn't just a movie about the ways of the vanishing WEst; it's about the ways of the vanishing Western. -- Grade: B+

It's mostly Wayne all the way. He towers over everything in the film. Full Review

Product Description:

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 Synopsis:

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.
