True John Wayne classic!

"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

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. G ... (more)

Best Films of 1969 (25 movies items)

"Wayne's last solid effort shows his age, which works for the Rooster character. The girl is annoying and the cinematography is sage bush league but this adaptation is still a classic, even if the Coens' remake easily improves upon the Portis story."

Films that absolutely needed that remake. (10 movies items)

"It is hard to believe that a Henry Hathaway/John Wayne collaboration could be bested. But, thanks to the presence in the original of Glen Campbell and Kim Darby (and despite the presence of Dennis Hopper and Robert Duvall), in 2010, the Coen brothers did just that. The second film is superior in every way to the original, though the original is very good too."
