Quotes from

Chester Hooton: As far as I'm concerned, this picture's over right now.


[Chester has the hiccups]
Duke: Can't you suppress it somehow?
Chester Hooton: Frighten me.
Duke: I can't, I haven't got a mirror.


Sal Van Hoyden: [singing] You wouldn't dare be too bold, would you? And think that my hand was to hold, would you? And you wouldn't play on my sympathy, then take advantage of me... would you?

Facts about

Bob Hope recalled that during the scene where he and Bing Crosby were bedding down beside their cabin in the Klondike, they were to be joined by a bear. They were told that the bear was tame and its trainer would always be nearby. Against their better judgment they went along with it. However, when the cameras started filming, the bear ambled over to Hope and, instead of lying down next to him like it was supposed to, the animal sniffed him and started growling. Hope and Crosby immediately stopped the scene and refused to work with the bear any longer, despite the trainer's protestations that it was tame and harmless. The next day the bear attacked its trainer and tore his arm off.
Filmed between December 3, 1943 and late January 1944, the movie premiered on February 27, 1946 at the Paramount Theatre in Manhattan.
The only one of the 7 Road pictures where Bob Hope winds up with Dorothy Lamour.
