Road to Morocco Overview:

Road to Morocco (1942) was a Comedy - Adventure Film directed by David Butler and produced by Buddy G. DeSylva and Paul Jones.

SYNOPSIS

Third time's a charm for the "Road" series. The third entry is classic film comedy at its best, and the best of the series. Hope and Crosby team at Arabian Nights fantasies, and the set pieces send up every clich? in the form. Shipwreck survivors Hope and Crosby hitch a ride on a wisecracking passing camel and head for Morocco where Bing sells Bob into slavery. It turns out to be love slavery as Crosby finds Hope in the lap of luxury, and Lamour's lap, as he awaits a royal marriage. Sheik Quinn has another idea. Wonderful fun with a snappy script, the usual asides, and cameos.
