When Sam McCord (Wayne) and George Pratt (Granger) eventually strike it rich in the gold rush, George sends Sam to Seattle to fetch his fiancée; but Sam falls in love with her. George eventually accepts his loss and sets about finding a new gal, but only seems to find trouble.

Partners (John Wayne, Stewart Granger, and Fabiano Anthony Forte) who share an interest in a gold mine near Nome Alaska must fend off all sorts of claim jumpers and worse. In the middle of the struggle we realize the definite lack of available women. Due to the riggers of protecting the mine Stewart Granger (George) asks John Wayne (Sam) to retrieve his intended from Seattle.
John Wayne intends to fulfill the contract but finds a small hitch. The intended is already married. However everyone knows that one Frenchie is like another and if you can replace a departed pet then why not a departed ... well you get the idea.
On his return things get a little more complicated.
Who are the good people and who is the bad?
So watch the movie and see who gets the mine and who if anyone gets the girl.

John Wayne at his best, playing a misunderstood character. Good fun about men mining for gold, and the troubles they encounter from other men, trying to stake a claim on what is already theres.
Enjoyable.

Format: DVD
I liked this 1960 western comedy and I spend a really good moment watching it. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Somewhere around 1900, during Nome gold rush (1899-1909), three men hit the jackpot - they find a really huge gold deposit and open a gold mine. Those three partners are Sam McCord (John Wayne), George Pratt (Stewart Granger) and George's much younger brother Billy Pratt (Fabian). Now that they are rich, George can finally ask his fiancée Jenny (Lilyan Chauvin) to come from Seattle and marry him.

But as somebody has to watch the mine, Sam McCord, who must go to Seattle anyway to buy some heavy equipment, is charged with the task of bringing Jenny to Nome. Things will not go as planned however and at one moment another woman will enter the picture and make the life of all three partners quite interesting - stunningly beautiful Michelle Bonnet (Capucine), a.k.a. "Angel", one of most popular hookers in the night club/brothel "Hen's House" in Seattle...

Other than those already described two more characters are important - a con man named Frankie Canon (Ernie Kovacs) and Clancy, a wise, old, huge, terminally fluffy dog with a bathtub fetish...)))

Directed by Henry Hathaway this is a merry, old style western comedy, which doesn't try even for a moment to take itself seriously - for our greatest pleasure! This very entertaining film reminded me pleasantly of some of the merriest Jack London's short stories about Alaska gold fever adventurers (even if they described the earlier Klondike gold rush from 1896-99). All actors clearly had great fun playing in this film and we can see that the director too enjoyed making it.

Format: DVD
Out of 20th Century Fox, North to Alaska is directed by Henry Hathaway (& uncredited input from John Wayne) and stars John Wayne, Stewart Granger, Ernie Kovacs, Fabian & Capucine. The film script is based on the play Birthday Gift by Ladislas Fodor, and it's a CinemaScope/Deluxe Color production with Leon Shamroy's cinematography mainly on location at Point Mugu in California. Lionel Newman scores the music and the film also features a hit song of the same name song by Johnny Horton. The plot sees George Pratt (Granger) & Sam McCord (Wayne) strike gold in Alaska. Nicely set up, George sends Sam to Seattle to bring back his fiancée. However, upon finding the girl, Sam learns that she has married another man and Sam makes the decision to bring back a pretty working girl called Angel (Capucine) as a substitute. Trouble is is that Angel misunderstands and thinks Sam wants her for himself and begins to fall in love with him. Things are further complicated back in Nome when con man Frankie Canon (Ernie Kovacs) tries to steal their claim. Not only that but Angel has to contend with George's mood swings and the puppy dog like attentions of George's younger brother Billy (Fabian).

It often gets forgotten just what a good comedy actor John Wayne was. His icon status, and the genre he's most famous for, tends to keep his comedy pieces from being discovered by the casual movie fan. Which is a shame because with film's like Donovan's Reef, McLintock! and this here Hathaway treasure, there's enough fun and adventure to blow away the blues. The story in truth is nothing to write home about, it's a standard love triangle piece surrounded by gold rush conning and conniving.
