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.

Academy Award Nominations:  Best Original Screenplay; Best Sound Recording
