True Grit is a movie based on a novel of the same name. The book relates an interesting detail left out of the movie: “I found myself in need of a road stake and I robbed one of them high-interest banks,” says Rooster Cogburn. “Thought I was doing a good service. You can’t rob a thief, can you?”
“It is all stealing,” Mattie Ross replies.
“That was the position they taken in Las Vegas, New Mexico,” said Cogburn. “I had to fly for my life.”
