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
Never amounts to even a speck of gold.
Harmless watchable cheesefest.
This movie is the original "Pretty Woman" only a lot more light hearted and one of the more humorous John Wayne flicks. John Wayne plays his typical rough and tumble type character, this time as a just-struck-it-rich miner with a love 'em and leave 'em attitude but also with a heart of gold.
Three or four bar-room brawls and the entrance of Ernie Kovacs as the Snidley Whiplash-pencil-thin-mustache scheming type character keep the movie lighthearted and funny. Frenchie beauty Capucine plays the hooker with the heart of gold that trys to claim Sam McCords heart.
Ha - new quote to the list (now to have to do it in the John Wayne typical drawl): There's one thing you gotta learn about women. They're all liars. And if they ain't liars, they're worse, laying for you with wedding music. Take that little dame from Oregon. All I was doing was tying her shoe laces and she starts beating me over the head with a preacher. Or that little thing from Minnesota, who tried to marry me while I was so drunk I didn't know what I was doing, if it hadn't been for the parson's mercy, I'd have been hooked good, for good! You just can't trust women. No matter how honest they act, they all want to be wives!
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!
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.
