Movie Scene : True Grit – Bold Talk From a One Eyed Fat Man


Ned Pepper and his gang ride into a clearing.  Rooster Cogburn is waiting for them.  He states his intention to take Ned in to hang.  “That’s bold talk from a one- eyed fat man’.  Rooster puts the reins in his teeth and the fight is on.

This is one of Babyhead’s favorite movie scenes.  The filmmakers nail it.  The setting, cinematography, characters, performances the action.  Goosebumps.  Great film making!  John Wayne’s best.  What a scene!

Yeah, Rooster Cogburn has grit.
