True Grit: A Further Adventure is a 1978 American made-for-television western film and a sequel to True Grit (1969) and Rooster Cogburn (1975). While John Wayne portrays Rooster Cogburn in the first two films, Warren Oates takes over the role in this 1978 television version.[1] Lisa Pelikan portrays Mattie Ross, played in the first film by Kim Darby. The supporting cast features Lee Meriwether and Parley Baer and the film was directed by Richard T. Heffron.


The further adventures of U.S. Marshal Rooster Cogburn are told here. He battles criminals and injustice in his own unorthodox way. Meanwhile, he must also contend with the ever tough-as-nails Mattie Ross, a teenage girl hellbent on reforming him.
