Spanking

Is it just my imagination or did John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara seem to really get into all those spanking scenes in the films they did together?

if you do a search on 'hollywood films wife spanking' you will find quite a few clips of such things. Yes Wayne and o'hara had a spanking i think in "The Quiet Man" (?) and also in "McClintock".

There were quite a few spankings in I Love Lucy, and in some other old sitcoms i believe.

We have The Quiet Man DVD and I've seen a couple of other films with the two of them going at it with their spanking scenes. Now you have me curious, Job. I'll have to do the search.

The scene in "McClintock" is worth the effort to find. She runs from him for quite a while as he pursues her, always walking with that steady "John Wayne" pace.

I don't think it's your imagination Gemma.

I have both of the movies Job mentions. In McLintock there is also a scene where their daughter is about to get spanked by her future husband and McLintock hand him a fireplace ash scoop before he starts.

I think that it was a much more acceptable practice once upon a time.

As an example from my last post, here is an add from the 50's:

Cute ad, Mark. You can almost hear the husband tell his wife, "Now get in the bedroom, strip, spread eagle on the bed and wait for me to get there!" ;-)
