The Manzanita Film Series is proud to present True Grit on Saturday November 27th at 7pm. Admission is $6.
John Wayne was given an Oscar for his performance as the drunken, uncouth, one-eyed U.S. Marshall, Rooster Cogburn, in this extraordinary Western. Cogburn is hired by a young girl (Kim Darby) to kill the man who murdered her father and to steal the family nest egg, and she insists on accompanying Cogburn on his quest. Cogburn isn’t happy about this, nor with the Texas Ranger La Boeuf (Glen Campbell) who also tags along and wants the reward. Laughter and tears punctuate the wild action as this odd threesome form a reluctant bond.
The Manzanita Film Series is a program of the Hoffman Center in Manzanita, Oregon. Films are screened on the 4th weekend of the month through out the year. Admission is $6 and theater concessions, as well as beer and wine, are available for purchase. Please contact Franz Hasslacher, at firstname.lastname@example.org for volunteer opportunities.
