From Amazon.co.uk

John Wayne hams it up as a one-eyed, broken-down marshal in this 1969 adaptation of Charles Portis's bestselling novel. Kim Darby plays the formal-speaking adolescent who goes to Wayne for help tracking down her father's killer, and singer Glen Campbell straps on his guns to join the quest. Directed by old lion Henry Hathaway (Rawhide), True Grit is largely a showcase for Wayne (who finally won an Oscar), but it is also a decent Western with a particularly stirring final act. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best 31 Mar 2003
Format:DVD
Mattie Ross (Kim Darby) seeks out a man with "True Grit" to detain the killer of her father. She eventuallty finds a drunken, one eyed US Marshall named Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne)and hires him to go into the Indian Territory after the killer. Glen Campbell as a Texas Ranger after the same baddy, for killing a "little" Texas Senator and his bird dog soon joins in the action. All three set off for the Territory after Tom Cheyney the murderer. The interaction between the 3 main players is superb - Wayne and Campbell argue over the reward offered in Texas whist Darby is far more interested in capturing or killing Cheyney in revenge for her father than for "some Texas bird dog"A high point of the film for me is when the trio find a couple of outlaws in a dugout and order them to cut up a turkey that Campbell has shot with his "Sharps Carbine" - too much gun as Rooster says . One of them is injured so Rooster offers help if the outlaw will tell them where they can find Cheyney. The other kills him to prevent him from talking, and Rooster then shoots his assailant. Leaning over the dying cowboy Rooster says "Your friend's done killed you, and I've done for him". The reply comes haltingly "He never done me wrong 'til he killed me" - Classic.Well don't just take my word that this is the best `cowboy` movie ever - be swayed by the panel who gave John Wayne his one and only Oscar for True Grit - truly his very best. (I had this on Video Tape - twice - I wore both tapes out playing them so often - now I have it on DVD.)

5.0 out of 5 stars An exceptional Western 15 Mar 2004
Format:DVD
When her father is murdered by one of his employees, Tom Chaney, young Mattie Ross is determined to see justice done. It seems the justice system isn't up to the job so she has to hire a man with "true grit" to track Chaney down. She hires a one-eyed drunk known as Deputy Marshal Rooster Cogburn, to find the man and see him punished. She and Rooster are joined in the hunt by Texas Ranger Le Boeuf who is after Chaney for the killing of a Waco senator and his bird-dog.
Normally I don't watch Westerns, but this one is special. The script is well written and funny and the acting is inspired. Mattie is a serious and efficient young woman who stands for no nonsense; trained to be her father's bookkeeper, she drives a hard bargain and isn't about to be gulled by anyone. She expresses herself clearly and precisely in clipped sentences, avoiding the use of contractions, rarely laughs and doesn't appear to appreciate jokes. But she's very funny, and so is Rooster. She introduces herself to Rooster in a court house where he's just been cross-examined by a defence lawyer - one of the professionals he refers to as "pettifogging lawyers". The meaning of the word "pettifogging" can't be found in an English dictionary but seems clear enough in context: clouding or fogging the issue; extinguishing clarity - that sort of thing - in order to help the guilty evade justice . The dialogue is unusually articulate for a Western. The "true grit" turns out to be equally distributed between Mattie, Rooster and Le Boeuf. During the course of the mission, the three come to respect each other and Rooster and Mattie develop something close to a father/daughter relationship. It's an excellent film with wonderful characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic John Wayne 27 Aug 2002
By AC
Format:DVD
A must-own film for all true film fans. This movie has all the ingredients to make it a classic. Great cast, great story, great action and an Oscar winning performance from The Duke. The film centres around the interaction between Marshall Rooster Cogburn (Wayne) and his new employer Maddie (Kim Darby) as they set off on the trail of the killer of Maddie's father, with a young Glen Campbell also along for the ride. The Marshall's 'old-fashioned' ways and his fondness for whiskey results in total and constant grief from Maddie. This results in some great dialogue and the script is my all-time favourite for any film.
