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.

I started to watch this movie and gave up after about 30 minutes, also I have always though that Wayne was nothing but hip. Did you know that he dodged the draft during WW 2??

John Wayne was born in 1906. He was in the movies and starred as Sgt Striker in The Sands of Iwo Jima.

There was a young Marine PFC in that movie named Martin Milner. You might recall him from the TV series Adam 12. ;)
