John Wayne shows off his funny side in this 1963 western, a comedy inspired by THE TAMING OF THE SHREW. Starring as wealthy cattle baron G.W. McLintock, Wayne shows a real sense of comic timing in several scenes filled with slapstick humor. After his wife (Maureen O'Hara) and daughter leave him for the East, McLintock attempts to win them back. The dynamics between O'Hara and Wayne are the strong suit of this film, the actors having worked together previously on THE QUIET MAN.
As this is by no means a revisionist western, McLintock's chauvinistic attempts to "tame" his wife fit within the problematic ideology of the larger western genre. The ultimate example of this comes at the end of the film when McLintock settles his marital dispute by publicly "spanking" his wife in what is now a notorious cinematic moment.
This movie is one of my Dad's favorite John Wayne movies. He was watching a very poor, faded copy from one of those 20-movie sets, which was all I could find for him. But this DVD is great - a good, clear, colorful copy at the best price I could find for a new DVD!
The image quality of this collector's edition DVD is excellent... much, much better than all of the other McLintock dvd's that I have previously purchased and viewed! I have personally viewed several other dvd versions of this movie... this McLintock Collector's Edition DVD is by far the very best... the best one I have ever seen!

This is another John and Maureen Movie and I can never get enough of wathcing them together. It was on TV a few weeks ago and my parents wwere watching it but had to go away and did not see the ending, so I purchased the movie so they could watch the whole thing and they loved it. They are both in the 70's and love John Wayne, and will watch again.
