From Everybody:

Funny

Yes, it is a little bit cheesy and hoaky at times, but I love every minute of it.
They don't make characters like this anymore: John Wayne style. I realized he is not the most attractive or fittest man, but he carries presence that not a lot of actors can pull off. He is a man by all measures, especially in this movie.
Some visual effects was done, but it looked very fake. Only a short part though, so don't worry.
It has fighting goats, clapping seals, and plenty of fights!

Plot:

After finding gold in Alaska, George Pratt (Stewart Granger) sends partner Sam McCord (John Wayne) to Seattle to bring back his fiancée, a French girl whom Sam has never met.

Finding there that George's girl has already married another man, Sam brings back prostitute "Angel" (Capucine) as a substitute. There is a misunderstanding: she thinks Sam wants her for himself and begins to become enamored with him during the boat trip to Alaska, during which he treats her like a respectable lady.

An angry George rejects the girl outright, though his younger brother Billy (Fabian) is definitely interested. Meanwhile, con man and saloon owner Frankie Cannon (Ernie Kovacs) tries to steal their gold claim.

In time, George takes a liking to Angel and is willing to marry her. But once he realizes that she has fallen for his partner, he does everything in his power to coax Sam into admitting that he, too, is in love.

Meanwhile, the men discovered Cannon's scam after he conned an illiterate drunk named Boggs, so they try to reclaim their right in the court. The story concludes with an all-out brawl in the town's muddy streets. Angel decides to leave but is convinced to stay once Sam tells her the reason publicly, yelling out, "Because I love you!"
