"Fill your hands, you son of a bitch!"

Is there another American actor more iconic and legendary than John Wayne?

True Grit is one of the most quintessential Westerns in filmic history. It features memorable quotes, beautiful open vistas, classic shootouts and of course one of the greatest stars of all time. Whenever The Duke's commanding figure wandered into the fram... read more

Ok, first of all, I am going to confess that I needed to see this soon because the Coen remake is coming out very soon and I just needed to see the original version first and, quite frankly, I am really glad that I did because I am not entirely sure that I can see the Coen version beating this one (as awesome as they are). I am not really a big fan of western films because I always feel that they ... read more

True Grit

“Star vehicles rely chiefly upon the success or failure of the material to take the persona of the star and twist it into a new shape. On these merits alone, True Grit is a resounding success. But taken as a complete work of film artistry, it doesn’t prove itself to be entirely successful. Yet for all of its problems, it’s not hard to see why The Duke finally won that elusive Oscar for his performance as the drunken rascal Rooster Cogburn.

We could sit here all day and argue over and over again whether or not his Oscar for Best Actor was a career achievement-in-disguise or won based on pure merit. It’s not hard to imagine a successful argument being made for his overlooked work in Red River or The Searchers as being more worthy of posterities value of what Wayne’s best pe” read more

Director: Henry Hathaway Thoughts: Ha! Well, still enjoyed it. The Bechdel Test = FAIL | Two Women = No | Talking = Well, no | About a man = yes | I like the girl in this film, but she is surrounded by guys and talking mostly about her father. "
