5.0 out of 5 stars Only one True Grit, and only one Rooster!, 8 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: True Grit [DVD] [1969] (DVD)
True Grit Is a classic! and I don't mean the new one! I love the music, the humour,everything about It really, me and my husband have always loved It. John Wayne Is the original and the best Rooster, he comes over as a loveble rougue, and the actors play of each other really well, and Glen Campbell has a lovely voice he showed himself to be a good actor aswell, excellent acting by Kim Darby who played Matty Ross bent on getting revenge on the man called Tom Chaney,Who shot her father,and nothing and no one Including Rooster, and Mr LaBeof the Texan Ranger ( Glen Campbell) was going to stop her, Inspite of them trying to stop her going with them to get Chaney, as she say's "I Payed good money" she hired Rooster to go and track Chaney down in the Indian territory,she was determined, well any way If you want the best True Grit buy the 1969 version you will not be disapointed. we have watched the new one but did not enjoy It, John Wayne as Rooster Is an hard act to follow,In fact the whole film Is an hard act to follow.

re your critical comments about the modern re-make of True Grit, remakes of films done well the first time are usually pointless almost always disappointing, presumably only made in the hope they will sell on the reputation of their predececessor regardless of their own merits e.g. the remakes of The Manchurian Candidate & The Italian Job.

The films that should really be considered for remaking are ones unsuccessful ones based on a good original idea messed up in the making.
