Sam, after trying to get George and Angel together, finally romances Angel, who, in the meantime, is busy fighting off the advances of George's younger brother, Billy.

North to Alaska Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

North to Alaska is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 2.36:1. This CinemaScope feature has been sourced from elements which were either relatively pristine or have been restored to virtually damage free condition, for there are really no issues at all to be worried about in terms of age related wear and tear. While color is certainly acceptable here, it simply doesn't rise to the vivid levels that have graced other Fox films of this vintage. There's a definite tan-brown hue to a lot of the film, as can easily be seen in many of the screenshots. There are also minor density issues that cause minimal though noticeable fluctuation in color values throughout the presentation. These perhaps niggling problems aside, this transfer still boasts nice fine detail (even if Hathaway and his ace cinematographer Leon Shamroy tend to shy away from extreme close-ups) and there is certainly no sign of either aggressive denoising or digital sharpening.


North to Alaska Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

North to Alaska's original theatrical four track stereo presentation is recreated rather vividly with the lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 4.0 track on this Blu-ray. The big hit theme song by Johnny Horton (who was killed in a car crash literally days before the film's release) sounds great. Fabian's somewhat lamer ballad doesn't fare quite so well from a musical perspective, but it sounds just fine. The big set pieces offer a nicely splayed soundfield that may not have the intense immersion that contemporary audiences are used to, but which offers decent ambience and occasional discrete directionality. Fidelity is fine throughout this track, offering dialogue, effects and score in a very well prioritized way and with no damage of any kind to report.
