Correction. The first movie version of True Grit was released in 1969. Portis’s book True Grit was published in 1968.
GH, I’m passively hunting for a Splendid 99 (or 66). I had my sights on the one of the latter but the deal fell through. It seems like all the Spendids have a British accent.
Hi, Catalina. Re commas: Doveglion, as, you, know, wrote, many, poems, using, commas, like, this. Do, your, cat, poets, use, many, commas?
Hi, Roger: There was also a sequel with Wayne reprising the role in Rooster Cogburn (1975), this time with Katherine Hepburn trying to find justice for the murder of her father. Interesting footnote: In True Grit, apparently Wayne didn’t speak a single word to Kim Darby between takes because he’d wanted his own daughter, Aissa, to play that role.
W.G.: I’m glad Wayne’s daughter didn’t get the part. Have seen Rooster Cogburn a time or two. Good movie. Nice pairing of Duke and Kate.
Good job GH. Nice Olympia SPLENDID 99👍🏾
Kent, your stamps look great. I don’t think the cat looks evil – just aloof and a little bored, an expression that is quintessentially feline.
Leo, yes, cats, work, on, comma, poems, late, at, night, sight, tight, bright, kites, with, mouse, tails, alight.
Caralina: Good, to, know. Me, ow.
Dato, We have a Splendid 33 in blue with burgundy keys
