Very entertaining movie, and not simply a shoot-em-up western. There is a decent plot and reasonable depth of character.
I am not a huge John Wayne fan – I generally find his performances one-dimensional and wooden – but he shines here. He deserved his Best Actor Oscar, his first, after two previous nominations. The supporting cast are great too, especially Glen Campbell, Kim Darby and Robert Duvall.
61 year old Wayne at his very best
I’m a massive fan of westerns but strangely enough John Wayne is way down on the list of my favourite actors . I’m not sure if it’s because I know how difficult he was in real life or actually because his acting ability is obviously limited but one thing I’m pretty sure about is , that True Grit is the best of his films.
Wayne plays a drunken, hard-nosed U.S. Marshal who along with and a Texas Ranger help a stubborn young woman track down her father’s murderer in Indian territory.
My favourite thing about True Grit is the soundtrack by Elmer Bernstein. It’s just brings back memories of The Magnificent Seven of which he did the music score as as well .
True Grit shouldn’t really work. It has a Singer and rookie actor Glen Campbell in the co lead and a 21 year old woman playing a 14 year old girl but despite that it really works . Sure Campbell is wooden but he looks the part and I think Kim Darby does a great job even though John Wayne criticised her performance afterwards.
John Wayne himself Is fantastic. He was 61 when this was filmed but he is totally convincing as Rooster Cogburn and totally deserved his one and only Academy award win for this performance.
