Skip to comments.Movie for a Sunday afternoon: "McLintock!"(1963)
Posted on 02/03/2013 1:35:01 PM PST by ReformationFan
For Super Bowl Sunday, what could be a more macho alternative for those who don't have a dog in the fight so to speak than a classic western starring Hollywood's greatest he-man John Wayne? The Duke plays a tough cattle baron named George Washington "G.W." McLintock while his frequent leading lady, the lovely Maureen O'Hara plays his tempestuous red headed wife in this wild, wild west take on William Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew". Definitely not a film for the PC/socialist/feminazi crowd but quite fun for those who are pro-capitalism, pro-freedom and pro-strong male leader. It's also fun to see then-future 1980s TV stars Stefanie Powers(as the Duke and Maureen's daughter) and Jerry Van Dyke(as her banjo-playing suitor) among the supporting cast.
One of my favorite Wayne comedies, right up there with Donovan’s Reef. He and Lee Marvin were a hoot!
” Ohhhh MacLin...long time we no fight”....
Back when Men were MEN and Women were Women!! Jerry Van Dyke kills me...what a goof!
The future girl from U.N.C.L.E. wasn’t bad either! And I wonder how many of the youngsters out there will even know what I am talking about.
Same here. I love those two actors!
Archive.org has wide screen and ‘letterbox’ versions to download or stream:
Amazed it’s public domain, but it is.
A dreadful film.
I do. But I’m only a youngster compared to the cast of “McLintock”.
Nicole, the feisty stewardess from Disney’s “Herbie Rides Again”-
Jennifer Hart(”she’s gorgeous”)-
I got to see Stefanie Powers and Robert Wagner on stage in a production of the play “Love Letters” some years back.
I wasn’t aware of that site. Thanks for the links!
“Back when Men were MEN and Women were Women!!”
“Jerry Van Dyke kills me...what a goof!”
This was back during his “Stacey Petrie” days-
Oh my, it’s the oldest video site on the internet. From the Smithsonian I believe. All legitimately Public Domain movies and shows.
But it’s hard to search IMO so I recommend going to this guy’s sites: http://free-classic-movies.com/ and http://free-classic-tv-shows.com/.
It’s a catalogue of _what’s at archive.org.
You can search it by actor or year for movies and his TV site is very easy to find things on.
Who plays the weasel like “Indian manager” in the movie? Short guy, seen wearing a tight gray suit.....I can’t find him on imdb.com.
Strother Martin. Also played the warden in Cool Hand Luke. “What we have here is failure to communicate.”
