Current Articles | RSS Feed RSS Feed

Ouray & Ridgway Colorado were home to the first "True Grit"

  
  
  

A list of things to do in Ouray Colorado is not complete without finding a few movie locations.  Many westerns were filmed in and around Ouray County including the original production of "True Grit" staring John Wayne, Kim Darby and Glen Campbell.   John Wayne won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Rooster Cogburn, the crotchety marshall helping Matti Ross track down her father's killer. 

A great YouTube video showcases the locations from Ouray and Ridgway, then and now style.

A package that includes lodging, jeep rental and dinner is available through several Ouray businesses to enable you to track down these spots.  This package is available from mid-June through September.  Snow makes some travel difficult at other times of the year but both Ridgway and Ouray scenes are accessible year round.

You can book the True Grit Package through our hotel in Ouray.
