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.
Plot: Ageing, wealthy, rancher and self-made man, George Washington McLintock is forced to deal with numerous personal and professional problems. Seemingly everyone wants a piece of his enormous farmstead, including high-ranking government men, McLintock’s own sons and nearby Native Americans. As McLintock tries to juggle his various adversaries, his wife—who left him two years previously—suddenly returns. But she isn’t interested in George; she wants custody of their daughter.

A great John Wayne film
This is film-making at it’s best! Superbly cast and acted, John Wayne stars with Maureen O’Hara, Patrick Wayne, Chill Wills and Strother Martin in a western with a twist of humor. There’s some drama and enough action to keep the viewer’s interest, but this film contains some hilarious scenes, particularly between O’Hara and Wayne. Those two have worked together (superbly!) before and it shows. Their interaction is perfect and the results provide some real comic relief! This isn’t one of Wayne’s old “oaters”, but a wonderfully written and executed film. Don’t miss this film – it’s one of the greats!
McLINTOCK! (Andrew V. McLaglen, 1963) ***
Lively star Western vehicle in comedy vein, patterned after NORTH TO ALASKA (1960) and with a “Taming Of The Shrew”-like plot that recalls THE QUIET MAN (1952; with the same leads) both of which, incidentally, I haven’t watched in a long time!
As John Wayne grew older, his films settled into being safe and unassuming family fare which this one certainly is, making it undeniably the least of the Batjac films released on DVD so far! Through all these films, he managed to surround himself with reliable talent on both sides of the camera many of whom were already a part of “The John Wayne Stock Company”. The script by James Edward Grant, Wayne’s favorite writer, provides plenty of amusing situations which are gleefully met by the cast (particularly Chill Wills, Jack Kruschen and Strother Martin) including a free-for-all in the mud, a fist-fight during a town celebration, a drunken encounter with a flight of stairs and the come-uppance of both female members (Maureen O’ Hara and Stefanie Powers) of the McLintock family at the hands of the Waynes (father John and son Patrick respectively) though the ponderous subplot involving the Comanches’ last stand (headed by Michael Pate) feels somewhat incongruous alongside the brawling and the slapstick and should, perhaps, have been dropped altogether.
The supplements are of a similarly high quality as the rest of the Paramount “Batjac” releases: the Audio Commentary here is especially engaging for the way it places the film in the context of both Wayne’s career and the revisionist attitude the Western genre would go through immediately afterwards; interestingly, as was the case with HONDO (1953), it’s also mentioned that John Ford was asked to direct some sequences when the films’ respective director became indisposed! Incidentally, I’ll be watching the similarly boisterous DONOVAN’S REEF (1963) soon a film that has eluded me all these years despite being a perennial on Italian TV! and which proved to be the last of the innumerable collaborations between Wayne and Ford…
