Storyline

George Washington McLintock, "GW" to friends and foes alike, is a cattle baron and the richest man in the territory. He anxiously awaits the return of his daughter Becky who has been away at school for the last two years. He's also surprised to see that his wife Katherine has also returned. She had left him some years before without really explaining what he had done, but she does make the point of saying that she's returned to take their daughter back to the State Capitol with her. GW is highly respected by everyone around him, including the farmers who are pouring into the territories with free grants of land and the Indians who are under threat of being relocated to another reservation. Between his wife, his headstrong daughter, the crooked land agent and the thieving government Indian agent, GW tries to keep the peace and do what is best for everyone. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

George Washington McLintock: Cuthbert H. Humphrey, Governor of our territory, is a cull. Do you know what a cull is, ma'am? A cull is a specimen that is so worthless that you have to cut him out of the herd. Now if all the people in the world were put in one herd, Cuthbert is the one I would throw a rope at.

Wayne marvellous in western comedy
1 June 2002 | by lonniebealeusaSee all my reviews

what a shame John Wayne didn't do more comedy roles,for he shows a flair for comedy in Mclintock. A wonderful supporting cast in Yvonne De Carlo,Maureen O'Sullivan,Chill Wills,and a special appearance by Jerry Van Dyke make this a wonderful time filler.The serious side still comes through in Waynes' speech on behalf of the Indians,but the remainder of the film concentrates on the lighter side and is a real treat.It is easy to see why John Wayne was loved by the film going public. Unfortunately this is one of the last times that John Wayne did a great acting job before going into self parody,even his academy award for True Grit does not compare to this performance.
