    I love this movie. Wayne and Hepburn were great together. What I find kinda funny and not at all surprised at though is in the scene where Rooster is trying to tally up his expenses and not being very good at it, so Eula tries to help him out and discover’s that Rooster was "embellishing" on his records. So even way back in the 1800’s, people were trying to rip off the government. I loved Rooster’s facial expression’s when "Sister" confronts him about it.

    If you were like everyone else, then who’d be like you?

    Chen Lee says a few things in Chinese. Once near the beginning, and once near the end. Anyone able to translate what he says?

    This movie was filmed on location which right my home town. It was filmed just out side of Bend Oregon. In the background you can see Mount Bachelor and the The Three Sister Mountains. Also you can see another mountain called "Broken Top" and you the river they were using is called Deschutes River. Some of the river scenes was also shot on the Rogue River. Most of the movie was filmed along the Deschutes

    River. The movie set was suppose to look like areas in Arkansas. This movie was very scenic and very beautiful film. Hollywood had stage set up some where in the Deshcutes National Forest. They used to film lots of Western Movies here.

    If you want to take a vacation where the Bend Area is the Vacation Spot of Oregon.

    Have a great afternoon,

    I simply can’t believe this could be so. I just finished watching it and I was expecting to find at least some Oscar nominations on record. But nothing — nothing at all.

    Wow — what a splendid film.

    Rosenthal has done good work, but I’m biased toward anything written by Elmer Bernstein, who did True Grit. I realize, of course, that Rooster Cogburn is a different film but still somehow I wish that Elmer Bernstein had done its music.

    Wasn’t the original name of this movie "Rooster Cogburn and the Lady"?

    Please be sure to check your local tv guide for the time in your area. This is being shown several times on Encore Western Channel so you may want to check for other times that are more convenient for you. It is a very good movie with two great stars in it and they were good together in spite of the faults of the movie. Two famous character actors John McIntyre as Judge Parker and Strother Martin as McCoy are in it. The movie was not a hit due to the timing of its’ release in 1975 but still worth watching because of the two stars and also it is a good movie. If it had been released about 14 years earlier it probably would have done better business. Enjoy!

    *******Spoiler Alert*****

    I am a great fan of John Wayne movies. That said, I have one minor problem with Rooster Cogburn. In the beginning, the marshal, Rooster Cogburn (John Wayne) is in hot pursuit of villain Hawk (Richard Jordon), and is told by Miss Goodnight (Katherine Hepburn) “he had nine men with him; how do you propose to best him?” That is the question on MY mind as well: The posse that he was promised was “long on promise; short on posse.” And they never show. Rooster is therefore taking off after all ten villains alone.

    Okay, you say. I am taking it too seriously. It is, after all a “John Wayne” movie. Fine. But later in the film, when Hawk’s men get cut down-one by one-from various disasters that include an Indian fight, as well as quarrels between the outlaws themselves, they are reduced, by film’s end, to only Hawk, and just two or three villains. Wayne is STILL apprehensive about taking them on. “What are our chances?” (Miss Goodnight) “Same as before, sister; they ain’t in our favor.” (Rooster). So, Rooster, apparently, is not superhuman in this film. Even taking on three bad guys is serious business. Yes, realistic. True. But that begs the question: How on earth did he propose to do the same when he was to face Hawk, and NINE OTHER VILLAINS? There is a consistency problem there.

    Don’t get me wrong. This is an entertaining film, and worth seeing for a dull weekend afternoon. But this is a minor consistency issue with me. Replies welcome. Thanks.

    Just watched this for the first time they should have cast Anthony Zerbe as Hawk i thought that the other cast member was pretty lame as a villian.

    Anyone know the title of the song John Wayne is singing in theis movie?

    About all you hear in the movie is, "I finded her … , I finded her …"

    Been searching Google, Yahoo, IMDB, Webcrawler. No luck, as yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

      Did you ever get an answer to your question about the “I finded her” song? I too want to know the rest of the lyrics.
      Thanks

    someone this far into their career, turning in such a wonderful performance? His second to last movie, and John Wayne created such a vivid, entertaining characterization – and I’d have to agree that his Rooster Cogburn is much more enjoyable to watch in this movie than the first, even though I think that in the first he was fantastic. This has to do with the presence of Katherine Hepburn. I can’t think of any modern day movies that display this much chemistry between the two leads. Can you?

    I’m sorry this didn’t do better at the box office, and all I can say is, 1975 audiences had to be out of their minds.

    What can I say? Kate’s the bait and I got carried away with her. I am in it to see Kate not Duke. The Duke rubs me wrong and I don’t know why or how I can get past it.

    John Wayne and Katherine Hepburn were great in it. It could have been better but it was a treat seeing these two great stars in a movie together. It is a shame they couldn’t have made some movies together when they were younger.

    But as they say…there might have been another in the works!

    Excellent (almost) the script is as near perfection as anyone has a right to expect! I find it better written than The African Queen. Pity the subplot is weak and when it is on screen we really want to be back with Eula/Rooster. Dialogue makes the film. Unusually effective locations.

    I really like this movie. The story is entertaining and Wayne and Hepburn are dynamite together. But there are some small goofs that I find amusing every time that I watch the movie. I was born, grew up, and still live in eastern Oklahoma, and am very familiar with it’s geography. First, there was never a place named Fort Ruby. I’ve checked "Oklahoma Place Names" and "Ghost Towns of Oklahoma", and it’s not listed. And having the residents of Fort Ruby live in teepees is incorrect. Mr. Bagby told Rooster that Fort Ruby was "near the Winding Stair Mountains". That would put it’s location in southeastern Oklahoma, near the town of Poteau, in the Choctaw Nation. The Five Civilized Tribes did not live in teepees. They lived in houses and log cabins. The plains Indians of western Oklahoma lived in teepees. Next, there is no "Cheyenne Springs" in this part of the state. The Cheyennes live in western Oklahoma. Since Rooster and Eula were headed back toward Fort Ruby from Bagby’s Store in order to head off the outlaws, it should have been called "Choctaw Springs". The scriptwriter really goofed on that one, and also about the teepees. More research was needed! Also, there never was a town in Oklahoma named "Goldstrike". And there wasn’t a "Sulphur Bottom", although there was a town named Sulphur Springs, which was located near the present town of Sulphur. But that is in western Oklahoma. Finally, the mountains. The movie was filmed in Oregon, and their mountains are much taller than ours are. One poster said that Oklahoma had no mountains, that it was all rolling hills and plains. Not true! Much of the state is rolling hills and plains, but we do have mountains in southeastern Oklahoma. The Kiamichi, Jack Fork, San Bois, and Winding Stair mountains are moderately tall ranges. And Rooster even mentions "Winding Stair Mountains" in TRUE GRIT!

    It’s very irritating whenever i try to look up information on my great-great-great uncle and they always display him as a fictitious western character… albeit the movie is overblown and made up hollywood, there really was a Reuben "rooster" cogburn. His family was quite insane from what i’ve heard, it even spread to my great grandfather, who i’ve heard many interesting stories of little violent tics he’d have, such as telling all the grandkids to load up a bucket of rocks to put in his car so he could throw it through the windshields of passing cars in the night that would have the audacity to keep their brightlights on. Also a few stories we’ve gathered over the years is that most of the Cogburn family were not accounted for during censesus because they would typically murder the census man that crossed onto their property and feed them to the pigs.

    We miss ya Rooster.
