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

Trivia

I made a mistake with an earlier trivia correction. The instrument being played in the parade for Rebecca was a HELICON, NOT a Sousaphone. The difference being that the Sousaphone's bell points up, the Helicon points ahead, which Sousa didn't like. It made the sound of the "tuba" precede and overpower the other sounds of the band. The Helicon was introduced in the 1860s. See more »

Possibly the best film the Duke ever did
6 April 1999 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

I laughed all the way through this one. It was a hilarious look at a man's relationship with his family, especially his headstrong wife. The fistfight at the mudslide was one of the funniest scenes ever filmed. Looked like everybody was having a ball. Great show.
