Heartwarming / True Grit

1969 Film

  • Rooster carrying Mattie to safety after having to shoot Little Blackie. This, despite the fact that he's been shot in the shoulder and is tremendously out-of-shape as a result of his age.
    • And the ending to the original film, with Mattie considering Rooster as part of her family.
