We had to get this DVD out after watching the Jeff Bridges version.
The John Wayne version is by far a better movie and doesn't have the miserable finish.
I believe that Hollywood is responsible for a significant number of suicides because of their fetish for miserable movie ending and I believe it is deliberate.
Very corny,watchable western from two big names. Got a great laugh,due them casting an actor one year older than Hepburn to be her father.You can do better,for fans only.
Not the best of either John Waynes or Katharine Hepburns films but still an enjoyable watch.
Enjoyable western romp which would be worthless if not for the legendary teaming of The Duke and Kate, who bounce off each other with intuitive ease. Unfortunately the plottier elements of the film don't work as well; it's telling that the 'gun-fight' scenes are the dullest in the film. For a truly great film about Hepburn battling the elements, check out THE AFRICAN QUEEN, the movie ROOSTER clearly aspires to be.
