McLintock! (1963)

McLintock! is a 1963 comedy Western starring John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara, and loosely based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. The film is famous (or infamous) for its two spanking scenes, in which mother and daughter are each paddled with coal shovels: the daughter by her suitor, the mother by her estranged husband.
