      Out of interest does anyone know how this film fell into public domain as I would have thought the rights would have still been with Batjac?

      It fell into the public domain because of legal squabbling. Four songs from the film are still under copyright so technically a DVD label would have to pay music rights to use those scenes, or change the music itself.

      Hi Senta

      Here's the link to were I got my DVD. I bought Hondo here too.



      Hi Mike,
      thank you for the link, it was new for me. The prices are rather high, they write about free delivery, but not international I guess, so I better will buy DVDs on ol Amazon or MoviesUnlimited to which I used. I already have Collector editions of Hondo, Island in the Sky and High and the Mighty from that bunch of DVDs.
      Senta :rolleyes:

      Hi ya'll,

      I always enjoy all of the Duke's movies!

      I also enjoyed McLintock!

      BUT......for some reason, the Maureen O'Hara character really grates me.. I know she's supposed to be a "shrill" of a woman, but I do not find her likable at all. I guess I am too spoiled with the other fine character's Maureen had played with John:smile: and I tried to like the character, but I can't.

      Not only that....why does everyone pronounce his name, McLintock, differently?

      Other than that...I always love to watch John Wayne in any type of situation.
      JohnWayne-ly Yours, Pilgrim

      # The "mudhole" in which the famous brawl took place wasn't actually made of mud. It was made of a material called bentonite, which is used in the drilling of oil wells and has the consistency of chocolate syrup. According to actor Leo Gordon (the first one to be knocked down it), that scene took a week to shoot.

      # Promotional events were postponed for a week following the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

      # Although Stephanie Powers claims that John Ford came to the set to direct the movie for a week, Andrew V. McLaglen the director says that it never happened. He says he was there for the entire shoot of the movie.


      # Continuity: After McLintock hires young Devlin, McLintock drives off with Drago sitting to his left. The wagon turns around (off-screen) and heads out of town. After the off-screen turnaround, the characters have traded places in the buggy and Drago is now on McLintock's right.

      # Continuity: In the opening credits there is an artist's rendering of the town of McLintock, with signs for every building indicating that every business in town is owned by McLintock. The sign on one of the buildings misspells McLintock as "McClintock."

      Hi Keith

      The picture of Duke here in the white suit is from 'Big Jake', this is probably again down to the changeover.

    • Re: Mc Lintock! (1963)

      I really enjoy this movie, and if I am wanting to watch something that is fun and light hearted that is the movie that I always pick! Of course with having John Wayne and Maureen O' Hara in a movie who could go wrong! Thier chemistry in my opinon is one of the best on screen pairing out there!
    • I have not been here in awhile, so forgive me if this question has already been posted.
      I was able to pick up a DVD copy of "McLintock". Why so cheap? Was this not a BatJac production? I thought it was very strange a film so good was available for less than a dollar. I just don't get it.

      It's good to see you back!!

      Your question has been discussed quite a bit on this board, and you can read that discussion here. I searched quite extensively, and found three threads which discussed mostly the same thing, so I merged them into one, though I didn't merge them with this thread (I didn't want to overwhelm Keith's work here with extensive previous discussion).

      Thanks for asking!

      The official version now available in Region 1 & 2 are the only versions to buy. The other cheap public domain prints knocking about are really awful and only fit for the bin.


      I agree, the remastering of the official edition makes the cheapie version look like a piece of static.
