Storyline

George Washington McLintock, "GW" to friends and foes alike, is a cattle baron and the richest man in the territory. He anxiously awaits the return of his daughter Becky who has been away at school for the last two years. He's also surprised to see that his wife Katherine has also returned. She had left him some years before without really explaining what he done but she does make the point of saying that she's returned to take their daughter back to the State Capitol with her. GW is highly respected by everyone around him including the farmers who are pouring into the territories with free grants of land and the Indians who are under threat of being relocated to another reservation. Between his wife, his headstrong daughter, the crooked land agent and the thieving government Indian agent, GW tries to keep the peace and do what is best for everyone. Written by garykmcd

People! People! People!
14 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

Once in a while, even The Duke liked to have a good laugh.

That's obvious in "McLintock!", where nearly every scene is a laugh riot. This is about the most boisterous, rambunctuous, slapstick-driven Western ever made. In fact, it's easy to see why this is one of Wayne's most popular efforts.

Everyone puts in a good performance (even a young Powers as McLintock's daughter) and is willing to give their all in the name of the classic Western (and classic comedy). There are a few Mexican, Indian and Chinese stereotypes that could have been left out but there are so many good spirits herein, it's hard to notice them.

Just look at the chemistry between Wayne and O'Hara as the long-suffering Mrs. McLintock. Small wonder they made a large number of movies together. Fire and brimstone mixes with mud and water until it's obvious that every laugh they generate has been earned honestly. Not an easy thing to do in any movie, especially nowadays.

Look, you can see a movie like "True Grit", "The Searchers" and "Rio Lobo" anytime you want to see The Duke in all his glory. But for good old raucous fun, give "McLintock!" a try.

Ten stars. The Duke and slapstick. Two great things that go great together.
