Wayne's comedy western good for what ails ya

"One of Two" and "Two of Two" left for summer camp yesterday. The house seemed really quiet, so "Four of Four" and I sat down to watch a movie, one of those films that everyone in the house had already seen, but I'm just catching up on.

North to Alaska (1960) with John Wayne and teen idol Fabio, was groundbreaking: It was the first western comedy. Wayne had achieved enough stature as an American icon that he wanted to do a film that would spoof himself. He pulls it off well, with lovely French actress Capucine at this side.

This one's worth some good laughs, if your laugh gauge is edging toward empty.
