Another one of my top ten Wayne films. Duke rarely made comedies, but when he did, he scored big. The clayslide scene in McLintock is well worth waiting for. (And of course, Wayne and Maureen O'Hara sparring off is not to be missed.)
My mom watched this with me some time ago and she couldn't believe how anti-woman it was. But I thought it was just funny....
I don't see it as being altogether "anti-women", just anti those women. Maureen O'Hara was asking for her come-uppance, while Stefanie Powers needed a firm reminder as to where her roots originated. Yvonne De Carlo, on the other hand, certainly held her own with the Duke, whether in conversation, or in tipping the old bottle.
I wonder if Duke and Maureen had any flashbacks to THE QUIET MAN when they were filming those final scenes?
