Movie Info

Having accidentally caused a merchant ship to blow up, stowaways Bob Hope and Bing Crosby are shipwrecked on the African coast. Commandeering a convenient camel (who takes time to ad-lib a spit in Hope's eye!), Bob and Bing are off on the road to Morocco, an event they celebrate in song. With nary a penny in their pockets, the boys try various methods to scare up a meal. Old reliable Bing shows up with the necessary funds; when Bob asks where the money came from, Bing calmly informs his pal that

The third in the popular Paramount series, starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour, is considered by some to be the most entertaining.

More Republican zany than Democrat zany.

Always fun to be off on this road w/Hope and Crosby

Lighthearted and nonsensical, sophisticated but not overplotted, Road to Morocco represents the point at which the Road-movie formula had hit its stride but hadn't yet descended into self-parody.

Crosby, Hope and Lamour at top form; still funny 60 years later.

Bing, Bob, Dottie, a talking camel, and great songs

Audience Reviews for Road to Morocco

Two goof-balls get lost in the white part of Morocco.
Let me get the serious stuff out of the way. Morocco is portrayed as radically other. All of the attractive characters are white actors playing "brown-face," and all of the unsavory characters have accents and are excessively tribal and violent. This portrayal continues the traditions that Edward Said writes about in Orientalism in which he claims that films like this contribute to a racist cultural attitude vis-a-vis the "East."
That said, Bing Crosby and Bob Hope were hilarious, and in spite of the film's problems from an academic standpoint, the film is nevertheless marvelously entertaining. Of all the Golden Age singing stars, I think Crosby is my favorite. His voice is so free and easy; it looks like anyone could sing like him, but of course no one can.
The self-referential jokes are great, and Crosby and Hope have an excellent chemistry.
Overall, the film gets a one-star penalty for racism, but it's still remarkably entertaining.

Crosby gets Hope to pretend he's retarded so that he might beg for some food, but wouldn't you know it, the first guy they try it out on has a speech impediment and thinks they're making fun of the way he talks. So then, in order to pay for a meal, Crosby sells Hope into slavery. But when your new owner is Dorothy Lamour... ooh la la, who minds getting sold? It's a very cheesy film, even by 1940s standards, but at least Hope and Crosby are letting the audience know that they know that we know, by breaking down the 4th wall and giving us the inside jokes, gags and puns. It probably pays to be in a certain mood when watching this movie, and I don't think I was in it.

Not a great movie, but it is pretty funny. If you love Crosby and Hope, you'll enjoy this movie.

The third and best of the Road series sees Hope and Crosby wooing desert princess Dorothy Lamour away from the clutches of Sheik Kassim, played by Anthony Quinn who returns from the first film. Three is most definitely the charm for this series as the formula attains the perfect balance of surreal sight gags, post-modern self deprecation and fast paced wise cracking. It has the best story, best songs and the jokes flow thick and fast in one of the best examples of wartime escapist entertainment. Hope and Crosby's partnership has an ease and sense of fun that is rarely matched and everyone involved clearly had a fantastic time making it. A minor comedy classic from the golden age of Hollywood.
