Facts about

The seventh of the seven Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour "Road" films. Dorothy Lamour only showed up long enough to help the boys out of a jam and still have enough time left over to get a song in.
Bob Hope's character Chester Babcock is named after composer Jimmy Van Heusen who was born Edward Chester Babcock. Van Heusen wrote "Warmer Than A Whisper", which Dorothy Lamour performs in the movie.
