Critic Reviews for North to Alaska
I can't in good conscience call this one of John Wayne's best movies, but I have to say that 'North to Alaska' has always been one of my favorites. It's just plain fun.
An OK John Wayne up north comedy western. Not one of his better efforts, but it has its moments.
One of John Wayne's most popular Western-adventures, North to Alaska reveals his light comedy skills, and benefits from Shamroy's on-location shoot, hathaway's smooth helming, and great cast, headed by Cappucine, Ernie Kovacs, Stewart Granger, and Fabian
Audience Reviews for North to Alaska
This is incredible comedy-adventure as well as John Wayne hangs up his stirrups, puts away his scowl, and reveals himself as an unexpectedly brilliant slapstick comic. This is rather than a typical John Wayne Western, this is a John Wayne Northern.
And Capucine is wonderfully in her performance as "Angel" who's in love with Big Sam (Wayne), not Sam's partner. She looked so beautiful as a French actress.
Rollicking fun, Capucine is lovely and John Wayne seems more relaxed then usual.
This is a action filled comedy western, funny and heartwarming and John plays his usual macho self. My favorite scene would be the one where George and Capucine succeeds in making the Duke jealous. Hilarious!
