Stewart Granger in his memoirs said he was very glad to receive the
role of George Pratt when he did and was always grateful to John Wayne
who got him cast in the part. He had just left MGM and offers were not
piling up. Granger's career was in a transitional stage and he would
soon take off for Europe and all kinds of spaghetti westerns. Right at
that point he needed a paycheck.
Granger and Fabian play the brothers Pratt, George and Billy and John
Wayne is their partner Sam McCord in a gold claim that's just hit it
big. He's got to buy mining equipment in Seattle and Pratt's fiancé

But Jennie has off and got herself married. So Wayne in a moment of
alcoholic brilliance spots another girl with a French accent in a

Of course there's another kind of claim jumping going on led by no-good

If you like your comedy broad and unsophisticated North to Alaska is
your kind of film. The Duke has some of his funniest screen moments in
this film. There's a whole routine with Granger and Capucine trying to
make Wayne jealous and with Fabian serving as a straight man to Wayne,
it's a pretty funny bit of business. Wayne's facial expressions are
alone worth seeing the movie.
John Wayne was always shrewd in marketing his films and he sought to
woo a younger audience by having current teenage idols in his films
around that time. He had Ricky Nelson in Rio Bravo and Frankie Avalon
in The Alamo and now Fabian in North to Alaska.
I saw an interview with Fabian some years ago where he said Wayne was a
formidable presence on the set of his film. He was great when you got
to know him and he accepted you. But you did things his way or it was
the highway, no questions asked.
Fabian has some moments too as a 17 year old whose hormones get going
at the sight of Capucine. He sings a song in the film, If You Only
Knew. But the real song hit is the title tune sung by Johnny Horton
over the title. It was a big hit for Horton in his short and tragic
career. Frankie Laine also sold a few platters with this song.
If your taste is sophisticated drawing room comedy, this ain't your
film. But fans of the eternal Duke will love it.
