Product Description

Product Description

Third in the 'Road to...' series starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, this is considered one of the best. Made during the Second World War, Hope and Crosby are shipwrecked near the coast of Morocco and find the country hostile to foreigners. The usual mayhem occurs with the beautiful Princess Shalmar (Lamour) buying Crosby as a plaything. Nominated for two Oscars, although Bob Hope wasn't nominated despite his gag in the film.

From Amazon.co.uk

Road to Morocco, number three in the series of breezy comedies teaming Bing Crosby and Bob Hope, may be the funniest of the bunch. Bing and Bob find themselves Morocco-bound ("like Webster's dictionary"), caught in an elaborately faked-up world of harems, palm trees, and other Arabian Nights bric-a-brac. Naturally, Dorothy Lamour is also there, as she was the customary target of male rivalry in the Road scenarios. There is something so loose and ingratiating about the patter between Hope and Crosby that it doesn't ultimately matter if half the jokes don't land; these guys had their own comfortable rhythm, fueled by cheerful one-upmanship. Their sense of spontaneity broke the fourth wall between movie and audience in a way only the Marx Brothers had really accomplished before, and audiences--feeling in on the joke--ate it up. Songs (including "Moonlight Becomes You"), topical references, and ancient vaudeville routines fill out the program. --Robert Horton

This was my first "Road to" film, and I can only hope the other three are as funny as this one. Of course, you can hardly go wrong with the terrific tandem of Bing Crosby and Bob Hope (and Dorothy Lamour certainly doesn't hurt, either). I have never really thought about Bing Crosby as a comedic actor, but he and Hope have an incredible chemistry that leads to constant hilarity. They really ham it up, sometimes playing directly to the audience, and Hope's facial expressions never seem to stop. This is a movie that does not take itself at all seriously; it's a refreshing breath of fresh air blowing through today's climate of over-produced Hollywood extravaganzas.
Jeffrey Peters (Crosby) and Orville "Turkey" Jackson (Hope) are a couple of swells who find themselves shipwrecked (thanks to Orville). Soon they are off (singing) on the Road to Morocco with nothing but food on their minds. Since they have no money, they are in a bit of a pickle about how to pay for their meal - that's when Peters solves their money problems by selling Orville to an Arab. After dead Aunt Lucy (yes, it's Hope in drag) appears to him and makes him feel guilty, Jeffrey decides to rescue his friend. Orville, though, doesn't want rescuing because he is being primped and pampered in the palace of Princess Shalmar (Dorothy Lamour). The idea of Orville marrying the beautiful princess doesn't set right with Jeffrey, and he starts crooning in her ear himself. The princess is supposed to marry Mullay Kassim (Anthony Quinn), and he (and his party of gunmen) has something to say about what goes on here. Naturally, Jeffrey and Orville end up in hot water, but they are surprisingly resourceful (they also obviously sent off for all the nifty gadgets listed on the back of old comic books as kids). Need I say it?

Bing, Bob and Dorothy have never been funnier! The 'kissing camel' scene will have you in stitches! This laugh-a-minute screwball comedy is an absolute MUST SEE! THREE thumbs up!

On the face of it, an odd pairing, a dance-band singer famous for introducing "crooning" and a quick-talking comedian, but they became smash box-office. A string of classic comedies which Bob Hope and Bing Crosby referred to in their own solo acts. In my opinion, "Road To Morocco" is the best. Well-structured gags, good songs and the lovely Dorothy Lamour. A wonderful sequence where a camel spits at Bob Hope, which was clearly unintended, as you can hear the crew laughing in the background. Crosby laughs out loud, strokes the camel, and says,"That's my girl!". Priceless.

Bought this for my mother and she was delighted. This is one of the best "Road to" films and the quality of the DVD was really good so we all enjoyed the movie. If you like Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, this film should be in your collection.

This was the third in the series and by now the Hope/Crosby/Lamour team were firing on all cylinders. This is the one I remember most from my childhood. There are plenty of off the cuff gags from Hope and Crosby and you have to be quick to get them. They make fun of the Paramount studio and break the fourth wall and speak directly to the audience. We even have the patacake routine, again!

You don't need to worry about the plot too much. Hope and Crosby are a couple of bums, as usual, this time shipwrecked off the North African coast. Lamour is the love interest and Anthony Quinn makes his second appearance in the series, this time as an evil, cut-throat Arab chief. All the close-ups have clearly been filmed on the Paramount lot but there are plenty of longshots of deserts, sand dunes and camels, just so you don't forget where you are supposed to be. There are a couple of catchy songs (Road to Morocco and Moonlight becomes you), the second of which had a life outside the film and has been recorded by several artists.

The pace is perhaps quicker and slicker than the first two. The action is pretty continuous and we don't slow down for the romantic subplot to be developed, which rather let down the previous Road to Zanzibar. The film is a good laugh and I enjoyed watching it.

I bought a copy of this DVD to replace my old videos, and therefor wanted subtitles as I am a little hard of hearing. On the cover of the DVD it states; Feature Soundtrack - English Mono and Subtitle Tracks - English. Your product details which I read before I purchased the DVD stated - Subtitles: English but then it said - Subtitles For The Hearing Impaired: None. So which was it?? I played the film, selecting the subtitles option on my DVD handset, the option appeared on screen but on pressing OK the subtitles did not appear. I have tried looking at all the film and even opting to select scene by scene from the menu and the special featurettes but still no subtitles!! I am very disappointed. I don't think there is a fault with the DVD, just the option and description as the film clearly does not contain subs.......Apart from that the film is very funny and the two comedians work well together. Tunes great too. Just a pity I have to turn up the TV volume to hear it all. I will be a bit wary of the descriptions and the DVD covers in future.
