Which is your favorite True Grit?

Which is your favorite True Grit? The original John Wayne version or the newer version?

that is one of the few movies where the original and the remake are BOTH excellent movies.

I loved the John Wayne character so much. But I like the Maddie (was that her name) character on the new one better.

All in all, it's a toss up.

YOU?

I agree a toss up, John Wayne is The American Cowboy, but the remake is awesome too. I also liked the new Maddie better.

Both covers were supposed to be in the first post, here they are sorry.

I had a hard time hearing what the new version Rooster was saying . He mumbles too much. And, there was so little humor in him, whereas JW had humor.

I love the last scene in the original, at the graveyard, when he says something like: "Well , honey, come see a fat man ride!" and jumps his horse over the three rail fence.

My favorite is with John Wayne when Lucky Ned Pepper says, " That is mighty bold talk for a one eyed, fat man."

John Wayne looks at him insulted and says, " Fill your hands you son of a bitch."

That is classic.

I have to go with the original. Great childhood memories watching it with my grandpa.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

the great part is how loyally both of them followed the book, even the dialogue style. I count "True Grit " right up there with "To Kill a Mockingbird" as great American modern novels.

I think it may be the best western or cowboy novel ever.

I can relate, it was my Dad's all time favorite movie. So it has always had a special place in my heart.
