McLintock (John Wayne) is the macho cattle baron who contends with his constantly complaining wife Katherine (Maureen O'Hara). Returning with their daughter Becky (Stephanie Powers) from the East , Katherine wants a divorce and custody of the daughter. Becky is pursued by two young men who have love on their minds. Matt (Jerry Van Dyke) is the college educated son of a man who is McLintock's sworn enemy. The other is Warren (Patrick Wayne), son of the irascible housekeeper Louise (Yvonne De Carlo). McLintock has more trouble and fighting at home than he does in the Indian raids that threaten the town. In a hilarious scene, he chases Katherine through the streets with most of the town following, culminating in a human mudslide down a slippery hill. He spanks his wife if public, but when he is done she falls madly in love with the man she once vowed to divorce. Chill Wills and Edgar Buchanan serve up their patented characterization in this lighthearted, routine Western adventure. … More

Audience Reviews for McLintock!
Heavily laced through and through with The Duke's brand of jingoistic Americana, this family production is little more than a good ol'boys tailgate party, only it's out west. "You know yer a redneck when ... " The naivete is nonetheless charming.
John "The Douche" Wayne stars in a western comedy that takes place in a town full of one-dimensional, goofy characters. It's basically one "pie-fight" after another as The Douche tries to...ah who cares.
Way more of a screwball comedy than a western, but it's great for what it is. The Duke always has a great sense of humor, I really love his over-misogynistic portrayal of G.W. Him and Maureen O'Hara always have great chemistry together and truly feel like a couple. It's got a really interesting message about relationships and gender roles that might appear obvious, but there's multiple ways you can interpret it.

|George Washington McLintock:||Agard, if you knew anything about Indians, you'd know that they're doing their level best to put up with our so-called 'benevolent patronage' in spite of the nincompoops that've been put in charge of it!|
