Cattle baron George Washington [=McLintock=] (John Wayne) is living the single life on his ranch. He is estranged from his snobbish wife, Katherine (Maureen O'Hara), who left him two years before. [=McLintock=] hires young Devlin Warren as a hand and his beautiful mother, Louise Warren, as his cook and welcomes their family into his home. He also butts heads with Matt Douglas, a sleazy bureaucrat who is looking to discredit [=McLintock=], and remove the local Indians. Sparks begin to fly as an unexpected turn of events results in brawls, gunfire, an Indian attack... and the return of Mrs. [=McLintock=], who wants custody over their daughter Becky (coming home from college) and a divorce from G.W.

!!The film has the following tropes:

* AuthorFilibuster
* BadassFamily: The [=McLintock=] family.
* BelligerentSexualTension: Boy Howdy!
--> '''[=McLintok=]:''' "Half the people in the ''world'' are women. Why does it have to be ''you'' that stirs me?" ''(Passionate kiss)''
* BenevolentBoss: [=McLintock=] is very much this. When he hires Devlin, he secretly gives Drago some money to give the proud young man and his struggling family, saying, "Tell him I pay my men a month in advance."
* BraidsBeadsAndBuckskins
* ButtMonkey: Agard (played by Strother Martin) is always in the wrong place at the wrong time whenever some kind of a fighting event breaks out.
* CampCook: Louise Warren, but she's a really ''good'' cook.
* CattleBaron: [=McLintock=]; he started out as a rancher and worked long and hard so his wife and daughter would prosper.
* [[ChineseLaborer Chinese Shop Owner]]: Ching, until he retires and is made "part of the family" by [=McLintock=] so he won't work himself too hard.
--> '''Ching:''' Crummy family, crummy family!
* DaddysGirl: Becky.
* DeterminedHomesteadersWife: Katie started out as this, then she became a stuffy RichBitch. G. W. decides to give Becky a small homestead instead of his entire estate as an inheritance because he believes the homesteading experience will help her and her future husband build character.
* DisproportionateRetribution: Becky demands that her father shoot Dev for the latter's wild driving and for characterizing her as a trollop. To Becky's shock, G. W. ''does'' shoot Dev...with a blank cartridge. Dev decides to spank her in retaliation.
* ExcitedShowTitle
* FieryRedhead: Maureen O'Hara's character, Katherine; her behavior certanly fits that red hair.
* TheGeneralsDaughter: Averted, in that [=McLintock=] respects Devlin as a hard worker and a fine young man; when he and Becky announce their engagement at the end of the movie, he is overjoyed.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: At one point during the mud fight, Katie decides to stick one of the feathers from her hat into G. W.'s rear. This causes him to swing his arms back in pain, accidentally shoving her down into the mud pool.
* HumiliationConga: Getting her butt (literally!) whacked by [=McLintock=] is the least of Katherine's worries.
* HypocriticalHumor: From the Duke himself:
-->'''George Washington [=McClintock=]:''' I know, I know. I'm gonna use good judgement. I haven't lost my temper in forty years, but pilgrim you caused a lot of trouble this morning, [[WhatTheHellHero might have got somebody killed]]... and somebody oughta belt you in the mouth. But I won't, I won't. The ''hell'' I won't! ''(Belts Jones in the mouth)''
* InjunCountry: Actually the Indians were fighting to ''stay'' in one particular part of the country, unfortunately [[IdiotBall Cuthbert H. Humphrey]] had other ideas.
* MistakenForCheating:
** Katherine fled two years earlier under the mistaken belief [=McLintock=] had cheated on her. Coming home to find Mrs. Warren working in the house doesn't help matters...
** G.W. comes home drunk at one point and Mrs. Warren tries to explain something for him, only for G.W. to insist she join him in a few drinks. During an attempt to help her upstairs like a gentleman, G.W. causes them to both to topple backwards and Katie comes out to find Mrs. Warren in her husband's lap.
* NoExceptYes: GW is ''not'' intoxicated. Yet.
* NoSell: When Fauntleroy Sage attempts to avenge the family honor in response to Devlin whippin' Young Ben, G.W. attempts to keep him out of it only for Devlin to give the okay. Devlin proceeds to punch Fauntleroy ''eleven times in the face'' to no effect; he doesn't even realize anything's happening until the tenth punch. The [[MightyGlacier bigger man]] then knocks Dev backwards over a table with one hit.
* ObstructiveBureaucrat: C. H. Humphrey. And a stupid one at that!
-->"Cuthbert H. Humphrey, Governor of our territory, is a cull. Do you know what a cull is, ma'am? A cull is a specimen that is ''so worthless'' that you have to cut him out of the herd. Now if all the people in the world were put in one herd, Cuthbert is the one I would throw a rope at."
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Indian]]: Running Buffalo, along with the rest of the Comanche. They're standing around most of the movie watching crazy white folk act up.
* PoliteVillainsRudeHeroes: Downplayed, as Cuthbert is not a villain in the conventional sense.
-->'''Cuthbert:''' ''Your husband is a rude man.''
-->'''Katherine:''' ''Yes, Cuthbert, I know.''
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: Devlin gets in a fight with a local ruffian during the welcome home celebration for Becky. Devlin takes care of the ruffian but then the ruffian's ''uncle'' shows up expecting justice. Devlin throws a mean punch, but the old man doesn't flinch and Devlin gets an OhCrap look on his face before the old man realizes what happened and decks the young'un with one blow.
* RecycledInSpace: It's ''Theatre/TheTamingOfTheShrew''... in TheWildWest!
* RichBitch: Katherine, oh so much.
* RuleOfFunny: The fight scene near the mud-hole, everyone that ''could'' fall in... did.
* RunningGag: [=McLintock=] tossing his hat onto the weathervane atop his home. Up to 310 at last count.
* ShoutOut: Creator/JohnWayne says [[CatchPhrase "Pilgrim"]] in the "mud pit" scene! He actually said this less often than most people think--it comes from ''Film/TheManWhoShotLibertyValance''.
* SouthernGentleman: Ol' Douglas Jr. tries to be this, but mostly comes across as a hapless geek.
* StealthInsult: Downplayed; when Katherine first moves back in, Mrs. Warren mentions how she originally thought G.W.'s was a bachelor's household. Katherine informs her that after she's concluded her business and left, Mrs. Warren will be entirely free to conduct herself as she sees proper in a bachelor's household.
-->'''Drago:''' ''[[WhatTheHellHero Katie!]]''
* SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute: if this movie has the look and feel of a Creator/JohnFord production... it's because it uses a lot of Ford's ProductionPosse in the cast and crew.
* TarAndFeathers: Mrs. [=McLintock=] gets covered with molasses and then feathers during the climactic Indian raid.
* TheSavageIndian: Parodied. The town leaders treat the local Comanche tribe like neighbors for the most part. It's mostly outsiders -- and inept Humphrey -- who mistreat them and drive them to go on the warpath... something that doesn't even bother [=McLintock=] and his fellows one whit.
* {{Tsundere}}: Katherine's about as Tsun-Tsun as it gets.
-->'''[=McLintock=]:''' ''Katherine, you women are always raising hell about one thing when it's something else you're really sore about!''
* TheWildWest
* WorthyOpponent: Running Bull and [=McLintock=] were on opposite sides of the Indian wars and in their [[RetiredBadass old age]] are finding that [[TwilightOfTheOldWest the west doesn't seem to have room]] [[{{Irony}} for either of them]] [[EndOfAnEra any more.]]
* YouWouldntHitAGuyWithGlasses: Ol' Jr. [[InvokedTrope puts on a pair]] after he's told that ''somebody'' should put a stop to a fist fight he's currently watching.
* YourCheatingHeart: Downplayed. Katie first left, again, after she saw lipstick on G.W.'s collar. When she first arrives back in town, G.W. mentions that he's seen a picture of her in the newspaper dancing with the governor.
