A stunning portrayal of the lives of Sgt. and Mrs. Mike
4 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mrs. Mike is a lovely and enjoyable movie which is well worth the hour and a half or so to watch. It is a magnificent portrayal of life and the struggles that come along with it in northern Canada about the turn of the twentieth century. The standards of 1949 special effects and the 1940's less-than-accurate portrayal of the natives are a setback, but, like all great movies, it is the story that is the treasure and wins the audience's heart.

Evelyn Keyes gives a stunning performance as the often rash but lovable Katherine O'Fallon Flannigan, better known to her friends and neighbors as Mrs. Mike, and Dick Powell gives an admirable portrayal of the resourceful Mountie and family man, Sgt. Mike Flannigan.

The story is both heart-warming and heart-breaking, although it does not closely adhere to the original story so delightfully recounted in the novel with the same name written by Benedict and Nancy Freedman, and thus, if you have read the book, some of the magic is lost. I suggest the novel above the movie, but the movie is very good and is both entertaining and sweet. A stunning performance!
