Rate this:
In this good humoured, old fashioned, no holds barred, all stops out comedy adventure, Oscar winner John Wayne hangs up his stirrups, puts away his scowl, and reveals himself as an unexpectedly brilliant slapstick comic. Directed by Oscar nominee Henry Hathaway, with a screenplay by John lee Martin and Claude Binyon, and co starring Stewart Granger and '50s pop idol Fabian, North to Alaska is a fun picture all the way. After striking it rich in the Alaskan gold rush of 1898, prospector Sam McCord (John Wayne) agrees to go to Seattle to pick up mining equipment...and his partner George Pratt's (Stewart Granger) fiancee, Jennie. After discovering that Jennie's gotten married to someone else, Sam returns to Alaska with a beautiful replacement for George named Angel. Trouble erupts, though, when Angel falls for the wrong man...Sam!

VERY GOOD 1960 John Wayne movie with several scenes 'down south' in Seattle.

As “fun” John Wayne movies go, McLintock(!) and Donovan’s Reef are better, but this has its moments too. Still, it is awfully silly at times (bird sounds when someone gets punched? srsly?) and makes its two hours felt.
