Not really a review, tho gotta love John & Maureen. Anyone know why TCM is now running a 122 minute edition of this 127 minute film? They used to show the full original 127m.
I grew up on John Wayne movies, and this is by far my favorite. It is funny, touching, and an overall wonderful movie!

Mclintock is a nice funny and family movie everybody would have fun watching it I love this movie every time it come on we watch it is oneof the best wholesome shows on tv.
Just a lot of fun
What is more fun than John Wayne playing John Wayne? Not many things in my opinion. At times this movie seems to be a remake of "The Quiet Man" with the same leads, especially near the end when John tames the shrew again.

This may not be the Dukes best ,but if someone put a gun to my head and demanded which of John Waynes movies was my favorite,it would be this,and that ain't easy for Duke fanatic like me!!Why?Because he displays the full acting gamut from terse and tough,to comedic and tender.Its 2 hours of pure fun,plenty of shoot em up to quiet reflective moments!!The mine scene starting with the dukes confrontation with Leo Gordon and ending with the funniest brawl on film is just classic!!Nobody gets killed,there is no foul language,its entertaining with plenty of sub plots and not one dead spot in the whole movie,Add in a who's who of classic character actors and there you have it,five star entertainment that has become a timeless piece of American cinematic history!!This film will continue to be enjoyed generations from now,a masterpiece and a classic to be enjoyed over and over again!!
John Wayne at his absolute funniest
In 1960, John Wayne starred in NORTH TO ALASKA which was a bonafide hit.The Duke discovered his funny bone and topped that film with this wild, unsubtle, yet hilarious western. Wayne plays George Washington McLintock or GW to his friends. He owns the larget ranch on the Mesa Verde and is the town's most respected citizen. He tells the facts of life to a group homesteaders that the Mesa Verde is unsuitable for farming because it is cattle country. Enter Maureen O'Hara as Katherine, GW's estranged and ridiculously refined wife. Her idea of the good life is "Newport during the season" not the Mesa Verde that she consider "Barbaric". Her attitude rubs almost everyone the wrong way. Katherine suspects GW of having an affair with new hire Louise Warren (Yvonne DeCarlo), despite the fact she later marries the local sheriff. Things pick up when Katherine wants their daughter Becky (Stepahanie Powers) to live the refined life while GW wants her to be more realistic. Becky attracts the attention of ranchhand Dev Warren (Patrick Wayne) and uber-nerd Matt Douglas Jr. (Jerry Van Dyke) starting a rivalry between the two. Complicating matters is the release of Comanche chiefs and the Territorial Government's desire to send the Comanche to a reservation. Highlight include a mudfight involving practically the entire cast, and GW's pursuit of Katherine throughout the town while fed up with her uppity behavior.
Great Stars: John Wayne, Maureen O Hara

John Wayne's Batjac Company filmed this movie and released thru UA. John Wayne to me represented the best in American Manhood and always made great movies. A fan always got their money's worth. This rollicking western co stars the lovely Maureen O Hara, a frequent John Wayne leading lady, and co stars Stefanie Powers and Patrick Wayne. Many familiar faces that made up the John Wayne stock company appear as well.I like this movie,RIP John Wayne.
This movie is one of our favorite John Wayne movies, we never get tired of watching it! As a matter of fact, we're watching it right now, with our best friends. Had to look up the names of a few of the supporting cast, as we were having a disagreement on who is who. John Wayne is the best!!!
