Bob Hope, Dorothy Lamour and Bing Crosby in Road To Morocco.

Bing Crosby and  whoop it up in yet another Road adventure, this one taking them to exotic North Africa. After washing onto the continental shores from a life raft, they follow their own ineptitude to the palace of a great sheik, with Hope being recruited as the slave of a beautiful princess (, again!). He thinks he’s hit the big time, but she really wants him for a ritual sacrifice that Crosby has to help him out of. The plot is no concoction of genius, but the duo are incredibly funny together and the self-reflexive humour, while sometimes too cute, is appreciably witty.
