Two of the most popular stars in screen history are brought together for the first time in this follow up to “True Grit”. The film returns John Wayne to the role of Rooster Cogburn that won him an Academy Award.
Katherine Hepburn is prim Eula Goodnight, a bible thumping missionary who is out to avenge the death of her father. Teaming up with Cogburn, sparks fly in this mismatched relationship between the rough and tumble lawman and the flinty Reverend's daughter.
John Wayne teams up with Kirk Douglas in The War Wagon, an action-packed western filmed in a remote part of Mexico. Wayne plays rancher Taw Jackson who's dead set on capturing an iron-clad stagecoach belonging to cattle baron West Catlin, the man who stole his fortune and good name years before. To pull off the heist, Wayne puts together a crew that includes an old character, (Keenan Wynn), a half-civialized Indian, a young drunk, and a cocky gunfighter. Of course, they manage the impossible to the tune of half a million dollars in gold bullion, accompanied by the music of Academy Award winner Dimitri Tiomkin.
