True Grit
1969
 
John Wayne landed one of his last great screen roles as crusty lawman Reuben J. "Rooster" Cogburn, who reluctantly helps teenager Mattie Ross (Kim Darby) pursue her father's killer. True Grit is more a character study than many of Wayne's formulaic Westerns. The rousing final showdown between Wayne and the villains adds to the Duke's long list of outstanding movie moments.
Synopsis compliments of Netflix
Classic, Western
 
I wish I could take Kim Darby, the horse salesman, and the funeral director from this film and put them in the remake. On its own it's just an okay film - but much more genuine than the True Grit remake.
