OMG I love this movie. My family is from Ireland and Wales. JW and Maureen O'Hara are two of my favorite actors and actresses. I love the way that they played in McLintock and in Big Jake also. John Wayne has always been my hero. He reminded me so much of my daddy. They are both big men and they don't take no crap off of anybody. My daddy raised me to have respect for myself and respect for others and John Wayne was the same kind of man. Their hands were big enough to hold u and protect u. I miss them both very much.
Welcome to the board, Sheilah06. Maureen and Duke did have that chemistry on film, for sure. And they were close friends off camera as well.

Time to bring this movie up to the front.
One of the best movies in my history. I watch it at least once a year.
I am sorry to see the "dukewayne" sight so quiet. It was so lively 10
Sometimes i am in a store talking to a young clerk, say something
about John Wayne. Then i realize they probably don't know him.
I ask them and sometimes they say my dad or grandpa loved him and
i have watched some of his movies with them.
I am 76 now and lived through much of the golden age of movies.
Now I can see most of them on TV or computer or other sources.
I probably own 250 movies. Including the original Duke's Alamo.
I bought the disc of it and had it copied to DVD. Them I bought 4
or 5 other discs because they are so beautiful covers and older ones
have lobby cards in them.
