LACMA presents Tuesday afternoon screenings of classic films throughout the year as part of the Tuesday Matinees series. Every month features a distinct theme.
After hired-hand Tom Chaney (Jeff Corey) murders the father of 14-year-old Mattie Ross (Kim Darby), she seeks vengeance and hires U.S. Marshal "Rooster" Cogburn (John Wayne), a man of "true grit," to track Chaney into Indian territory. As the two begin their pursuit, a Texas Ranger, La Boeuf (Glen Campbell), joins the manhunt in hopes of capturing Chaney for the murder of a Texas senator and collecting a substantial reward. The three clash on their quest of bringing the same man to justice.
1969, 128 minutes, DCP | Directed by Henry Hathaway; produced by Hal B. Wallis; written by Margeurite Roberts; with John Wayne, Kim Darby, Glen Campbell, Robert Duvall, Jeff Corey, Dennis Hopper, Strother Martin, and John Fiedler
