John Wayne's most popular film of the 60s is a broad, boisterous comedy-western loosely based on William Shakespeare's The Taming Of The Shrew. Wayne, in his two-fisted best, stars as George Washington McLintock, a middle-aged cattle baron. McLintock hashis hands full with his estranged wife (Maureen O'Hara) who walked out on him 2 years ago. She has returned to get a divorce in order to move back east with their daughter, Becky (Stefanie Powers). Verbal fireworks explode, slapstick pratfalls bloom, andthe Wayne-O'Hara "reconciliation" culminates with the biggest mud-hole brawl this side of the Mississippi. Patrick Wayne, Yvonne De Carlo, Chill Wills, Strother Martin and Jerry Van Dyke are among the dazzling supporting cast in this wild, raucous and hilarious western. Directed by Andrew V. McLaglen (Cahill U.S. Marshall).
