Storyline

The murder of her father sends a teenage tomboy, Mattie Ross (Kim Darby), on a mission of "justice", which involves avenging her father's death. She recruits a tough old marshal, "Rooster" Cogburn (John Wayne), because he has "grit", and a reputation of getting the job done. The two are joined by a Texas Ranger, La Boeuf (Glen Campbell), who is looking for the same man (Jeff Corey) for a separate murder in Texas. Their odyssey takes them from Fort Smith, Arkansas, deep into the Indian Territory (present day Oklahoma) to find their man.

Awesome Movie07 June 2016

An awesome movie! John Wayne was superb as the no nonsense U.S. Marshall "Rooster" Cogburn, hunting down the bad guys. The Duke was at the top of his game in this movie and he even had help from none other than Glen Campbell. Highly recommended.

Great movie31 January 2016

Great Western classic with John Wayne giving a stellar percormance in the lead role. Plenty of action and good dialogue. Still worth watching.

Should be higher19 January 2015

This is the better of the two True Grit movies. John Wayne is just excellent and he does not sound like he has marbles in his mouth like Jeff Bridges.

Wonderful movie10 December 2012

I've been watching this since I was a kid and it's still great. To this day, when the breakfast biscuits come out a little funky, we call them "corn dodgers". It's truly an icon among western movies.

Still great -- prefer it to the new one. Thank you Movieberry, but where is Rooster Cogburn, and all the other great John Wayne movies. I also liked Hatari! -- set in Africa.

Great John Wayne western. As said Jeff Bridges can't really emulate the immortal John Wayne
