    I got this at Wal-Mart in a double DVD set with THE TRAIN ROBBERS and think it's one of the Duke's best early movies. It reminds me of a deluxe, adult version of one of his old Lone Star oaters. Am I wrong, or is this the first one (or close to the first) where he starts doing his patented "walk"? I don't really think Rocklin's a "woman hater", I think he just pretends to be one in order to gain Gabby's trust early on.

    Hate to hear the disparaging comments about Rooster's previous "leading lady", as I think Kim Darby's performance as Mattie is incredibly good. I find the character endlessly fascinating and Darby is pitch perfect in the role.

    As for Kate, I love the way she obviously seems to be having such a good time making ROOSTER COGBURN. Her chemistry with the Duke is a joy to behold, making her character's growing affection for Rooster seem warm and convincing. Too bad the movie itself is so bland and poorly done, with terrible direction, editing, and cinematography. The first time I saw it I couldn't believe how slapdash it seemed. Only after repeat viewings have I begun to develop first a tolerance and then a liking to the film--mainly thanks to its two stars.

    I think I forgot to post in this forum. Anyway, I'm porfle and John Wayne is my favorite actor of all time. Hi, everybody!

    I just bought THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE at Wal-Mart for five bucks!
