McLintock! is a 1963 comedy Western directed by Andrew V. McLaglen and starring John Wayne, with co-stars including Maureen O’Hara, Yvonne De Carlo, and Wayne’s son Patrick Wayne.
The film, produced by Wayne’s company Batjac Productions, was loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.
Cattle baron George Washington ˝G.W.˝ McLintock (John Wayne) is living the single life on his ranch.
He is estranged from wife Katherine (Maureen O’Hara), who left him two years before, suspecting him of adultery.
When he isn’t playing chess or breaking his own record for throwing a hat up onto the longhorn-shaped weather vane at the top of his house every time he comes home drunk, McLintock keeps busy with the ranch.
He hires attractive widow Louise Warren (Yvonne De Carlo) as his cook and welcomes both her and her two children into his home, including grown son Dev (Patrick Wayne), who is handy with his fists.
McLintock butts heads with a local gadfly, Matt Douglas, and Territorial Governor Cuthbert Humphrey, a sleazy bureaucrat who is looking to discredit McLintock, settle the territory, and remove the local Comanche Indians.
Sparks begin to fly as an unexpected turn of events results in brawls, gunfire, an Indian attack ... and the return of Mrs.
McLintock, who wants custody over their daughter Becky (Stefanie Powers) (returning from college) and a divorce from G.W.
Becky comes home from school with her banjo-playing love interest, ˝Junior˝ Douglas (Jerry Van Dyke), but soon falls for Dev after he takes her across his knee and spanks her with a coal shovel.
McLintock approves of their engagement as does Mrs.
Warren, then pursues Katherine through the streets and shops of town until he spanks her bottom with a coal shovel and she submits.
