5.0 out of 5 stars 'PURE GOLD', 28 May 2014
This review is from: True Grit (1969) [Blu-ray][Region Free] (Blu-ray)
what can you say about 'John Wayne' that hasn't been said a thousand times before, without doubt he had a 'presence' and 'swagger' that 'owned' the screen, he was for me, as i'm sure he was for many of you 'the ultimate cowboy'
In 'true grit' we find a 'precise'' and determined young lady 'Mattie Ross' (Kim Darby) set out to hire 'Rooster Cogburn' (john Wayne) a hardened 'drunk' to help her bring to justice the man that killed her father, he accepts the deal she offers, but isn't too keen on having her 'tag' along to ensure the mission is fulfilled.
They are joined by 'Marshall La Boeuf' (Glen Cambell) who is on the trail of the same man for another murder.
The humour that bubbles to the surface in the film is part of it's charm.
The young girl even manages to 'melt' the heart of the no-nonsense hard drinking Marshall.
'John Wayne' quite rightly earned an 'acadamy award' for his role in the film.
In my view this along with 'The Cowboys' and 'The Shootist' these were indeed some of his best performances.

A true patriot who loved the country and a great actor. TRUE GRIT is a great Western and one of the few movies that also spawned a good remake.
