WIN Smithsonian: The Real Story - True Grit on DVD
The line between good and evil in the Wild West was often blurred, and perhaps no Hollywood Western captured the realities of the dangerous frontier better than 'True Grit.'
It's a brutal portrayal of frontier justice, but real life in the West was even more shocking.
Explore a violent and unforgiving time in America's history and see how Rooster Cogburn and young Mattie's encounters with hangings, shootouts, and kidnappings would have been part and parcel with life in the Wild West.
If you would like to win a copy of this fantastic new DVD, just answer this easy question about the original movie: A stunt double actually performed the entire scene where Rooster Cogburn charged Ned Pepper's gang on horseback. John Wayne was only seen briefly in close-up, and he was riding on a trailer, not a horse! But what is that infamous stunt doubles name?!
