IA #56: McLintock! (1963)

 McLintock! (1963) on IMDb

John Wayne didn’t make a lot of comedies, but McLintock! was a critical and commercial success for him, his son Michael Wayne, who produced it, and his son Patrick Wayne, who co-starred.

Loosely based on The Taming of the Shrew, the movie centers on a cattle baron and his estranged wife, played by Maureen O’Hara. To describe the events and outcome, Leonard Maltin said it best, “Not recommended for feminists.” If you can get past that, it’s nice to include something this broad and colorful in the Internet Archive Top 100.
