Product Description

Triple pack of Hope and Crosby's classic 'Road' movies. 'Road to Singapore' (1940) was the first of the 'Road' movies bringing Bob Hope and Bing Crosby together as two wanderers on the road to comic adventures. With the glamorous Dorothy Lamour in tow, the scene is set for gags aplenty as our heroes settle in Singapore. In 'Road To Zanzibar' (1941), forced to leave town in a hurry, carnival performers Fearless (Hope), and Chuck (Crosby), arrive in Africa only to be lured into the jungle by scheming Dorothy Lamour. They're soon up to their necks as they become guests of honour of the local cannibals. In 'Road To Morocco' (1942), shipwrecked and rescued by a sultry princess (Lamour), Jeff and Turkey (Hope and Crosby), have to survive sun and sand in this screwball classic. All the ingredients are here, from Crosby's crooning and Lamour's vamping, to Hope's standout one-liners.

Synopsis

Features three of the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby Road To... movies: Road To Zanzibar, Road To Morocco, and Road To Singapore is a satire on all jungle movies, in which Hope and Crosby find them-selves on a slow boat to Africa, where they become involved in diamond smuggling, slave trading and the eternal pursuit of Miss Lamour. Road To Morocco finds Bing Crosby selling Bob Hope to slavetraders, and both in hot pursuit of Princess Dorothy Lamour. Songs include 'Moonlight Becomes You'. In Road To Singapore, two men try to forget their previous romances in Singapore.

5.0 out of 5 stars A look back at two funny men 5 Aug 2010
I hadn't seen either of these films for about 20 years, and had forgotten how good they were. Sure, some of the references are a bit dated, but good clean humour never dates.

It was nice to go back in time to when films could be made without being smothered in Sex and Violence but for laughs and who can forget Dorothy Lamour the one and only Sarong Girl. Excellent !

My how time moves on with more efficient technology and higher budgets. The social commentary offered by these 60-y-o. films is also not without regrettable moments, by which I mean Hollywood attitudes have moved on thank goodness. Supply with expected efficiency.
