Academy Awards 1969 - Best Actor: John Wayne
Rating: 5/5 -- A marvelously rambling frontier fable packed with extraordinary incidents, amazing encounters, noble characters, and virtuous rewards.
New York Times
4 stars out of 5 -- [Wayne] simply gives us his best late-career Wayne, just with an eyepatch. And yes, he's darn good at it.
An undeniably vivid, exceedingly well directed (by veteran Henry Hathaway) frontier tale that "tells it like it was." Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Classic Western with memorable characters, some gun violence Full Review
Common Sense Media
Somehow it comes off like a TV celebrity roast. Full Review
Rating: C+ -- Far too often for True Grit to quite overcome, [Wayne's] larger-than-life turn flirts with, if not outright topples into, self-parody. Full Review
Lessons of Darkness
5 stars out of 5 -- [A] smartly written, beautifully photographed piece of cinema history.
A pure western in which a lawmen tracks a criminal, TRUE GRIT, based on Charles Portis' novel, reunited John Wayne with director Henry Hathaway (THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER). Wayne is crotchety U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn, who would rather stay home than chase criminals. He heeds the call, though, when fourteen year-old Mattie Ross (Kim Darby) calls on him to avenge her father's death at the hands of a man who has escaped into Indian territory. Glen Campbell is a Texas ranger who accompanies them for his own reasons. Wayne reprised the role six years later in ROOSTER COGBURN.
Oscar winning performance by John Wayne as Rooster Cogburn, the one-eyed, eye-patched Deputy Marshal who helps a stubborn, yet resourceful, teenage girl find the murderer of her father.
