True Grit (1969) (BD)

Customer Reviews

How much better can it get?
John Locke
"True Grit" benefits from a sharp script with a real feel for period dialogue... and some cranky characters with very individualistic points of view.
Joel R. Bryan
John Wayne won his one and only Oscar for his performance as Rooster Cogburn and what a deserved award it was.

In ways this is an old chestnut; but it has its charms.

It's beautifully cinemagraphed: the colours are rich and vibrant. The natural scenery is wonderful. Plus, the beginning of the film is a splendid evocation of American Victorianism--with the funeral parlor, court house, boarding house, etc.

The representation of post-bellum middle-southern America is excellently drawn. (The locale is supposed to be Arkansas. There is mention of Yankees and Texicans, etc.)

Glenn Campbell was not an actor at all, but he was a good fellow and a nice folk singer of the 1960s, closely identified with Texas. (He sings the title song.)
Great supporting cast with Robert Duval and Jeff Corey. The two scenes with Strother Martin are worth the price of admission alone. Probably this is John Wayne's best rôle.

The sound track score by Elmer Bernstein is very fine; and as mentioned, the scenic cinematography is excellent. The screenplay dialogue is wonderful, featuring real Americana turns of phrase. The widescreen DVD transfer is good.

Finally, there is an ineffably life-affirming ambience to this film which is touching and uplifting. At the end, when Rooster jumps the rail on his new horse, it brings a tear of joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Edit 25 Dec. 2010: having now seen the Coen Brothers' new film of True Grit we are happy to report it a very good work indeed, and a fine successor to the 1969 version; hopefully it will bring this story of courage, righteousness and justice to a new generation of viewers.
The new film is dark and elegiac, striking a deep resonant chord of genuine Americana: highly recommended.

This is a review of the PQ of the newly released blu ray of the original True Grit.
There is so much edge enhancement applied to the picture that it appears fake, more like overprocessed video than film. I found it very distracting through the entire movie, and would never choose to watch this blu ray again. Not unless it was remastered properly and reissued (not likely).

Stay away from this blu ray release. At the very least, rent it before you buy it to avoid disappointment.

True Grit is the only John Wayne film that I saw during its run in the theater. Glen Campbell gave a good, and underrated, performance as a likeable Texas Ranger. Contrary to the critics, who ganged up on Campbell, I thought that Kim Darby was the weak link in the cast. Robert Duvall was outstanding, as well as the rest of the supporting cast. The soundtrack was excellent and the scenery was fantastic. Virtually every line that John Wayne delivered in the film was gripping. I have never seen an actor since who could hold an audience's attention the way he did in True Grit. An interesting anecdote: Henry Hathaway was pretty rough with Glen Campbell and berated him mercilessly during one of the scenes. Robert Duvall blew a fuse and told Hathaway that if he treated any member of the cast that way again, he would walk off the set.
Sit back and enjoy the show.

John Wayne stars as Marshal Rooster Cogburn, a one-eyed, hard-drinking, straight-shooting, cantankerous lawman teamed with a feisty kid (Kim Darby) and a conceited Texas Ranger (Glen Campbell) to bring to justice one Lucky Ned Pepper (Robert Duvall). Wayne won a much-deserved Oscar for this performance. This, along with "The Quiet Man" prove the guy could really act. It's a shame he didn't get to more often.

"True Grit" benefits from a sharp script with a real feel for period dialogue... and some cranky characters with very individualistic points of view. Of course, the Duke's Cogburn leads the way, but Kim Darby, in her film debut, fearlessly jousts with all comers and generally comes out ahead. She's Cogburn's match in the grit department, headstrong and stubborn. "She reminds me of me," Cogburn says with obvious glee as the girl daringly crosses a swiftly-moving river on horseback. Duvall makes a redoubtable villian in his short screentime- not evil, exactly. Just hardbitten and intent on pursuing crime, and strangely fatalistic. Even with such well-observed characters, the film doesn't lack for Western action; it eschews gunfight cliches in favor of realism. ...
Gorgeously shot in authentic outdoors locations by director Henry Hathaway, "True Grit" also features an outstanding Elmer Bernstein score. Even if you're a Western-hater, just focus on the characters and an excellent tale. This is just flat-out a first-rate movie.

Look for cameos by Jay Silverheels, Wilford Brimley, plus small roles well-played by Strother Martin and Jeff Corey (Wild Bill Hickock in "Little Big Man").

True Grit DVD

True Grit is probably my favorite John Wayne western, maybe The Shootist is a close second. It stars John Wayne as an old, rough and coarse U. S. Marshall who reluctantly helps a teenager (Kim Darby) who both won academy Awards for their roles in the movie. The Marshall helps track down the killer of Darcy's Father into Indian Territory (modern day Oklahoma). The movie is based on the novel True Grit.

Glen Campbell sings and plays a Texas Ranger who tags along.

Highly recommended for fans of John Wayne, Classic Western movies, and Cowboy movies the way they used to be made.
