The Original Is Better

With Robert Duvall and Dennis Hopper.
And more of the dialogue from the novel, including such gems as:

"I would not put a thief [whiskey] in my mouth to steal my brains."

"Mr. Rat, I have a writ here says you're to stop eating Chin Lee's cornmeal forthwith. Now it's a rat writ, writ for a rat, and this is lawful service of the same." (Cogburn before shooting a rat.)

"Most girls like little play pretties, but you like guns, don't you?"

"I will not bandy words with a drunkard." "That's real smart. You've done nothing when you've bested a fool."

"Looking back is a bad habit."
