Review: True Grit (1969)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Aug 20, 2016

Silent Take: “True Grit” circa 1917

Movies Silently Posted by Movies, Silently on Aug 21, 2013

I enjoyed True Grit as a book and I loved the 2010 adaptation. The ‘teens were a golden time for the western film and so I decided to work with the year 1917 in mind.
