A word of warning for those about to buy 'McLintock' from the John Wayne collection. The film itself is excellent and portrays once more the special Wayne/O'Hara screen magic(for further insights read Maureen O'Hara's recent autobiography). However,the film is ruined by the abysmal quality of the DVD itself. The opening credits are so blurred as to be all but indecipherable and some passages of the film look as though they have been recorded on a home video camera.It is quite disgraceful to foist such a shoddy product onto the open market and the distributors should be ashamed of themselves. DON'T BUY IT.
