  • Just re-watched this great movie again. Anyone notice that the McLintock interior shares the color scheme with the inside of the Reata household in "Giant" ? Dark colored staircase, maroon walls, etc.


    At first I almost thought they had re-used parts of the set.

  • Okay, finally go around to watching McLintock Blu-ray today and watched it with commentary from Michael Wayne, Andrew McLaglen, Micheal Pate, Maureen, Leonard Maltin, Frank Thompson and Stephanie Powers. I must say the picture was really great, and a lot better than the 10 year + DVD I had.


    While watching it Stephanie mentioned that Ford took over directing for a week. Is that confirmed? Andrew McLaglen states that's not true. So did John Ford visit the location? Maybe Stephanie was mis-remembering.

    I'm no expert by any means, but that's the first I've heard of it. Not sure why he would have... though it happened on other films, she could easily be mistaken.

  • From our Trivia section in the opening post.


    Although Stefanie 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.

    In addition to this I have cross referenced a couple of books,
    including John Wayne: American
    and there is no mention of this,
    so I wonder if Miss Powers WAS indeed mistaken!!

  • Am I the only one shocked to see how well Powers has held up through all these years? Her looks remain incredibly fresh and beautiful without the appearance of a surgeons knife. Really quite amazing.

  • I always loved the part where his daughter tells him to shoot Patrick, so he gets a gun (unbeknownst to her, a starter pistol) and shoots him. Her reaction was priceless.
