Daily News) Adult situations, profanity. (G-1:47) August 23,27,31 True Grit John Wayne This roughshod, cantankerous U.S. marshal who shoots first and asks questions later won the Academy Award for John Wayne. His “Rooster Cogburn,” a one-eyed whiskey-gulping rascal, is just the man a 14-year-old needs to hunt her father’s killer. Persevering young Kim Darby proves more than a match for the Duke. Glen Campbell is a spur-jangling Texas Ranger. Family fare. (G-2:08) August 22,26,30 17
