|The most requested of john wayne's films finally comes to home video. This rowdy, rollicking comedy-western has been a favorite of the duke's fans for over thirty years.|
Editor's NoteJohn 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.

Customer Reviews of McLintock
The GOODTIMES version of this DVD is downright awful. The color rendition is bad & the clarity in places is even worse. The GOODTIMES VHS is just as bad. This was a great movie that has been mangled badly! I have a VHS version that's not made by GOODTIMES that is good.
Good movie, but don't buy the DVD2/23/2002
This is the worst transfer of a movie to DVD I've seen, poor digitalization, poor color quality, and completely inept pan&scan. Don't buy the DVD manufactured by Studio Goodtimes.

THE DUKE DOES IT AGAIN IN A VERY FUNNY FILM THAT PITS HIM ONCE AGAIN WITH THE RED HEAD LOVE OF HIS LIFE. A GREAT FAMILY MOVIE THAT YOU WILL WANT TO SEE MANY TIMES.
