McLintock!

"Weak"

McLintock! Review


Mind the exclamation point in the title. There's plenty of yelling in McLintock! a much-loved yet still hokey and somewhat ill-advised western "comedy" that doesn't play very well for laughs any more. The plot basically concerns a wealthy cattleman (Wayne) who squabbles with everyone in the town he basically runs from top to bottom -- but he fights the most with his wife (Maureen O'Hara) and daughter (Stefanie Powers). Eventually this culminates in characters falling into muddy water and, in the film's most absurd moment, Wayne encouraging his daughter's boyfriend to give her a good spanking -- and even handing him some sort of implement to help him out. Made in 1963, this might have been the reason women's lib got its big start.
