  • You all my want to smack me in the ass but I just bought a wide screen copy of McLintock from walmart for 5 bucks and it is excellent, much better than the beat VHS copy I bought at a yard sale 6 years ago and have made it smoke more than once however that thing will still play great back up I say :cowboy:


  • If Duke were alive today he would love to keep this most un-pc picture around just to raise their ier.

  • Hello all
    This member has been waiting for over a year to get some feedback on her question. Considering today is her birthday I was hoping someone could offer some information regarding her question of pay equity on a set ( see post that proceeds this one)

    Greetings from North of the 49th

  • I wish I could help Maudy out with that one Kilo, but I've read many of Duke's bio's and don't remember coming across something like that. That isn't to say it's not true, rather that I don't remember. I hope someone can bring up something for her though. Good Luck.

  • Howdy all,
    I wish I could give a definite answer as to whether or not what Maudy heard was true. Unfortunately I can't. I have never heard that particular story, but I have heard similar ones, from both sides of the fence. I think I can, however, say that Duke was definitely not a racist. He did not approve of the socialist leanings of the welfare system (cradle to grave socialism he called it), and he did not approve of the government putting anyone on the dole, who was able to work and support themselves, but would not. I think, based on what I've read about him, that if he did hear of a group of workers (regardless of their race) that were being openly discriminated against simply because of their race, he would have said and/or done something about it. Exactly what, I couldn't say. I know this doesn't really answer the question, but I hope it helps.
    Best to All,

    "I won't be wronged, I won't be insulted, and I won't be laid a hand on. I don't do these things to other people and I require the same from them" It may be time worn, but it's the best life-creed I know.

  • Hi

    John Ford ensured that all ethnic races worked on his pictures and ensured that they had the same living conditions and received the same pay.

    I don't think it would be too unreasonable to assume that having seen ford at work come to regard the old man like a father that John Wayne would put Ford's views in practice wherever he worked.

  • Hi All

    Recently purchased the Region 1 version of Mc Lintock. The difference between the Offiical Region1 and the Public Domain Region 2 versions in Europe is Mindblowing.

    Absolutely superb. Definitely go for it if you have a multi region dvd player.

    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?


  • Hi,
    I too have Region 2 version always worring about it poor quality and thinking about purchasing new official version. Besides it has many interesting features.

    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 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.

  • 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


  • Hi Keith

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



  • Hi,
    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.
