In 1970, John Wayne won an Academy Award. for his larger-than-life performance as the drunken, uncouth and totally fearless one-eyed U.S. Marshall, 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 an 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.

  1. Nobody gets wet crossing a river or dusty when tossed to the ground..cute story line but zero realisim.

  2. I believe in salvation and redemption my mother made sure I stayed in church my son and daughter in-law are starting a church

  3. My parents were close frienda with Buddy Portis.. Aka Charles Portis.. in Hamburg, Arkansas. From what I understand, Kim Darby was a pain to work with. Buddy spent time on the set. Wonderful book!

  4. Saw it in 69 in Denison Iowa drive inn in if I remember right in a tan 63 Farolane ford mom popped a couple of brown paper bags of popcorn and a couple of glass bottles of dads root beer

  5. Never understood his popularity .he was like the neighbor with big mouth .but my folks worshiped him too warren . 7 corners mall every new Wayne movie .of course Eastwood was polar opposite .very controlled

  6. John Wayne and Hollywood's depiction of the West is true grit. And is b*******John Wayne never had another grit to cast people of color in his movies oh yes there were people of color in the old west. We're not talking about Tonto.

  7. The fat faulty wing assembly decay because cover notably serve on a highfalutin comb. rough, parsimonious aluminum

  8. John Wayne is a national treasure even in his old age acting. He's great! Love this movie it is amazing way better this original classic is…

  9. “A good Christian does not flinch from his difficulties” (or at least that what I think she said). As a believer in Christ, I smiled when I heard that line.

  10. We get things done… Bad , good , life , death. This is why , you are here.. do good, and , don't take any shit , from nobody….

  11. Saw it at the drive in back in 1970 in St. Louis. Lightning started in the middle and we had to wait it out, which added to the suspense.

  12. is that you FOX NEWS/SPorts is this ME! usurpating bastard but not with biden you are deep state traffic figures

  13. What I liked more about the Coen Brothers remake was that Rooster Cogburn is more realistically portrayed as what he was in the book: a hitman.

  14. This is the fist time I've ever seen this movie and really sat through it long as i did because of Robert Duvalls performance whom i didn't know was in it until now, the only john Wayne westerns i ever liked or have seen were The Sons of Katie Elder and The man who shot Liberty Valance,i i guess you can say i never was a john Wayne fan and never really saw what all the fuss was about that people made over him, I've seen much better and way more believable actors than he was, he seemed to play the same character constantly really, i wouldn't call his acting method or style exceptional but to each his own.

  15. When are you guys going to let us cross off choices that we know we don't want on our suggestions? I've marked "not interested" 100 times and this keeps showing back up and worse, coming on automatically. Is somebody paying you guys to offer me movies made by racists or did I just get lucky? Please take this slop off my suggestions. Thanks. 🙂

  16. And ironically in real life..ned would have handed Chaney over to rooster..
    And they would have all been good

  17. I dont remember what year it came out on TV. I think I was 12-13 years old at the time. But after watching it. I spent most of the summer teaching my Dads horse to jump a small garden fence and do the Lone Ranger hi ho silver trick and back up to the left.. He got mad about it when he by accident did the back up and left reins movement and did a Hi ho silver and was thrown off. . Until he found out all of his friends thought it was the coolest thing. And then he bragged about how his son was a real Cowboy. Flash forward to today. My Dads saddle is now my seat on my Ironhorse Chopper. And he bought the Hulling saddle for $658.00(lot of money back then) at auction in 1975 for a charity event. Only because it was owned by John Wayne. If YouTube would get with the times and allow you to attach a picture to a comment I would show my bike with the saddle.

  18. Dear God🙏💗💕 in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
    I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
    You said in the bible that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
    Right now I confess Jesus as my Lord. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved. Amen.

  19. The Gospel of salvation of our souls: 💜💕💜💖❤️❤️❤️❤️💞💜💕For what I received I passed on to you as of [first importance]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,  that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve.  After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time,

  20. The lavish rest intriguingly promise because factory phongsaly behave concerning a judicious utensil. stupid, earsplitting agenda

  21. I love bubble John Wayne's and Clint Eastwood movies but my all-time John Wayne film has to be The quiet Man with Marina O'Hara I saw that with my daddy when I was younger I would have loved to have seen it again with him before he passed away but hopefully I get to watch it with my grandpa before he passes away. And I think I've even watched it with my daughter The quiet Man that is I have a lot of old movies on VHS and on DVD and Blu-ray all together I think I have about five maybe 6,000 movies and my daughter used to love to watch the old westerns the old action movies Scarface is one of her favorites and then one of the others was welcome Rambo movies and the rocking movie and The godfather there's just something about older movies but are just better the sad thing is that it's like they can't come up with anything original anymore that would have to do remakes of everything it's pathetic actually but then again that's the way most of the democratic so-called stars are they make me sick. But as long as Eastwood is alive I will watch whatever movie he's in or directs.
