Based on the novel

John Wayne portrayed Rooster Cogburn
in the 1969 film True Grit, based on the 1968 novel
by Charles Portis. Wayne won his only Oscar for his performance.

Wayne portrayed Ethan Edwards
in the 1956 film The Searchers, based on the 1954
novel by Alan Le May. His performance was full of rage,
complexity and humor. It was the role of a lifetime,
and surely the one that deserved the golden statuette.
