Audience Reviews for North to Alaska

  • Nov 15, 2009
    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.

    funny and light-hearted john wayne comedy. i've seen a comedy with john wayne in it before and it wasn't good at all. however this one is directed by someone else and miles better for it!
