Throughout his illustrious film career, John Wayne made many films that will forever stand as some of the greatest contributions to American cinema. Few impacted his life and legacy quite like True Grit.

John Wayne: The Official Collector's Edition Volume 29—50 Years of True Grit
I have every edition so far and plan on getting more. However, I find it difficult to find them in my area. Walmart is the only one I have found it at and that is sporatic. So I end up ordering with you. You are prompt with your order and it is in great condition.
So easy to order from the website versus driving all over the city! Like the "heads up" alert text before the next publication too.
Terrific addition to my collection. So many wonderful photos are shared. No other magazine is so generous with pictures and information. Thanks to all those who contribute to each issue. please especially thank the Wayne family for sharing personal photos with us fans. It's hard to believe it's been 50 years since the Duke gave us that great character showing true grit. I smile each time i hear him say, "...one -eyed fat man". Also it was nice of the editors to honor some folks who showed true grit in their own lives. I look forward and treasure each new volume full of photos and information about an admirable man of true grit.
