The story line in this motion picture is very serious, although the movie is a hysterical comedy western. George Washington McLintock is a very rich land owner who's grown daughter is coming to visit him. His ex-wife is also coming so she can take your daughter to the big city to make sure she stays a lady. He also has a housekeeper who is very beautiful, and he has trouble with a crooked Indian reservation government agent who treats the Indians with total disrespect. Add a fight in a large dirt pond to this, and you have a wonderful comedy.
