1969 M No Notes.

In 1970, John Wayne earned an Academy Award for his larger-than-life performance as the drunken, uncouth and totally fearless one-eyed U.S Marshal, Rooster Cogburn. The cantankerous Rooster is hired by a headstrong young girl (Kim Darby) to find the man who murdered her father and fled with the family savings. When Cogburn's employer insists on accompanying the old gunfighter, sparks fly. And the situation goes from troubled to disastrous when the inexperienced but enthusiastic Texas Ranger (Glen Campbell) joins the party. Laughter and tears punctuate the wild action in this extraordinary Western which features performances by Robert Duvall and Strother Martin.

This older movie was just as good as I remembered it John Wayne as Rooster Coburn and the young Glen Cambell Great to be able to view it again

Saw the recent remake - liked the story so much, decided to check out the original. Well you can't beat John Wayne in this lead role. Much better than the remake. Classic, wonderful.

A really enjoyable movie. An older movie that's a bit different from the norm. Good viewing

We watched both versions of this movie in the same weekend. Liked both but thought this was the better of the two, and really enjoyed it.

Somewhat dated, it is still an amusing and well told story.

This movie now suffers from comparison with the new adaptation by the Coen Brothers. What the Coens teased out of the story (sticking even more closely to the original novel) is extraordinary, and this... Read more

A good western in its time. Entertaining though. John Wayne is always good value in a movie.

Wayne plays a murdering verbose lawman whose time is past. Because the film is so long he has a lot of screen time, but this is compensated for in part by an interesting support cast among the "baddies" and the location photography.
