  • Mark your calendars! True Grit is making a return to theaters for two dates in May 2019.

    Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the classic Western that won John Wayne his first and only Oscar®. The legendary movie star gives his most iconic performance as Rooster Cogburn, a drunken, uncouth and totally fearless one-eyed U.S. Marshall hired by a headstrong young girl (Kim Darby) to find the man who murdered her father. When Cogburn's employer insists on accompanying the older gunfighter, sparks start to fly. 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 film featuring performances by Robert Duvall and Strother Martin. A true western classic for fans and first-timers, True Grit is a must-see on the big screen.

    This event includes exclusive insight from Turner Classic Movies.

  • Will the movie be released on 4k HDR? TRUE GRIT and indeed many other Duke westerns could be released in 4k versions I believe.

    The WAR WAGON - BIG JAKE - CHISUM - RIO LOBO - THE TRAIN ROBBERS - THE UNDEFEATED and possibly THE SEARCHERS could benefit from the 4k HDR treatment.

    Don't get me wrong the Blu-ray version are superb with great picture and colour, with the 4k HDR treatment those elements would be enhanced further...

    Just a few thoughts...

  • Bumping an old thread, but I was SO looking forward to seeing True Grit in the theaters. I left half way thru, went home and watched the rest on my bluray. The film was in such shoddy shape. It had the quality of a VHS tape, and there was a horizontal red line running thru the bottom of the image. What a disappointment!

    I call BS of that trivia answer.
    He was 6.4" I think. I watched the Phil Donahue interview from around 1976 and you get a real sense of just how big the Duke was. How intelligent and charming and self effacing too. Think the audience were eating out of his hand and rightly so. Wonderful candid interview....
