A gold prospector encounters many problems when he agrees to pick up his partner's fiancee in Seattle to bring her home to Nome, Alaska, in the 1890s. Overly slapstick at times, but great fun nonetheless. Loosely based on Laszlo Fodor's play "The Birthday Gift."

Henry Hathaway directed the film North to Alaska starring John Wayne (as Sam McCord). This comedy/western came out in 1960 and has a total running time of 120 minutes. It’s the 1890’s and pals Sam and George have found gold in Alaska! In the meantime, they encounter many problems, especially Sam. Sam heads back to Seattle to transfer George’s fiancé back to Alaska only to find out that she’s already married! This was a pretty good film. There was some comedy throughout the film.
