3.0 out of 5 stars 'Autum' Wayne, 10 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Rooster Cogburn [DVD] [1975] (Blu-ray)
In 1975 Duke Wayne was having serious health problems and is advanced age was getting too obvious. The Western genre itself was far from the moviegoers first option, in fact the Duke's films were not doing very well at the Box-office.
Trying to recapture the public attention Wayne returned to his most sucessuful caracther in late years, that of Rooster Coburn, the amiable self-parody of an old cowboy that had transformed 1969's True Grit into a huge hit and ultimatly offered him a mutch deserved Oscar.
This time with Katherine Hepburn as co-star, Wayne delivers another amusing performance and truly shows how mutch of an actor he really was.In fact the Wayne/Hepburn warm performances are the strongest argument of this picture, together with the beautiful photography and autumnal landscapes that fit so weel the story and the actors mood.
Essential for John Wayne fans, the Duke would only do two more films after this one, Brannigan and The Shootist...
