    I thought this was the most comical movie by the Duke that I have seen. It almost had a disney type feel to it. For example when the people are fighting in the first scene and there are all the sound effects for each punch.

    Definitely enjoyable, I particularily liked the scene where Angel is being tickled and you see the duke throw the bottle and glass over his shoulder, then he gets up and topples the table shouting TIMBER! I watched that part a couple of times because it was great.

    What was with the seal at the end though? It went a bit nutty there.

    A big step away from the ordinary for Henry Hathoway though. It's funny that he went on to directed Sons of Katie Eldar and True Grit, two fantastic movies that were more serious (though there's a lot of humour in True Grit).

    Sad story about North to Alaska. Ernie Kovacs (Frankie Cannon) died in a car crash less than 2 years after this movie was released.

    Anyone ever notice at the end of this movie how it looks like Fabain tries to get a kiss on the lips and Capucine sorta pauses and turns her cheek?

    Hi


    I think that these must be british posters as they don't figure in The Movie Posters at Auction catalogue.



    Regards

    Hi Arthur,
    It looks like French cover of the movie, but they name it instead of North to Alaska - Le Grand Sam. I bought my copy of the movie in Paris and like it.
    Regards,
    Vera

    This ranks right up there as one of our favorite, lighter films of Duke's.

    Here are a couple of posters -

    This second one is a 1964 re-issue -

    A quick question about this movie. Sam McCord was bringing back Angel for his friend. So when Lars pulls back the curtain, why does Sam have a liplock on the girl that he got for his friend??????
    Stay thirsty my friends.

    There was a recent political scandal here that revealed that civil servants in their work time were entering Wikipedia and changing personal details on celebrities.

    The outcome was that it was revealed that that anyone can sign in make an account and changes any details of any person I wouldnt place too much faith on Wikipedia!!

    Here is an example of the comic from the movie. Enjoy!
