Wealthy rancher G.W. McLintock uses his power and influence in the territory to keep the peace between farmers, ranchers, land-grabbers, Indians and corrupt government officials.
According to producer/son Michael Wayne, in the scene where JW (John Wayne) jumps from a hay loft to a pile of hay in a sitting position, Wayne thought it looked like fun and insisted on doing it himself, instead of a stuntman. Although studios frown on a valuable star doing a potentially dangerous stunt, Wayne eventually was allowed to do it, but it was also shot with a stuntman, just in case.
Makes seven times this month he's come home swoggled.

The band music being "played" for McLintock's daughter's train arrival has a clarinet in the score but no woodwinds are shown in the group of musicians.
There are no end credits at the end of the movie.
