True Grit. Ridgway, Colorado and the surrounding areas were a buzz back in the late ’60’s as John Wayne rolled into town with Dennis Hopper, Robert Duvall, and Paramount Pictures to film western classic “True Grit.”
The town itself was a self made movie set for this full length Western film. As were the surrounding hills and valleys. In honor of this little piece of nostalgia, plaques now adorn many of the structures that either appeared or stood where they did in the film. It just so happens, once upon a time, the front of the that oh so famous Court House, is where our office is, Ridgway Real Estate.
Have you had a chance to view John Wayne in this western classic? If not, now’s your chance!
