Mr. North is a charming,sophisticated and wittily performed comedy of manners.
There are no aliens, nor special effects. What there is is a cast of perfection, who performs this tongue in cheek delight flawlessly. Edwards, Bacall, Stanton and the great Robert Mitchum head a cast that has just the right touch for this adaptation of Thornton Wilder's novel.
Newport, Rhode Island is the exquisite setting for this little jewel.
I could not help but wish that the film had been more successful financially, for then we might have availed ourselves of The Further Adventures of Mr. North.
