True Grit (1969) (US BD) in December

Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the US Blu-ray Disc release of True Grit on 14th December 2010. 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.

Based on the novel by Charles Portis, this Blu-ray of the 1969 film arrives ahead of the new adaptation by the Coen Brothers.

  • Commentary by Jeb Rosebrook, Bob Boze Bell and J. Stuart Rosebrook
