ON THE ROAD: CINEMATIC JOURNEYS
Bob Hope & Bing Crosby Double Feature! Illustrated Talk & Screening!
ROAD TO MOROCCO / ROAD TO UTOPIA

Program begins with an illustrated presentation from Maureen Solomon on the road movies of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby.

ROAD TO MOROCCO
1942, Universal, 82 min, USA, Dir: David Butler

This third in the series of ROAD pictures finds Bob Hope and Bing Crosby as a pair of stowaways stranded in North Africa who fall under the amorous eyes of Princess Shalmar (Dorothy Lamour) and invoke the ire of an Arabian sheik (Anthony Quinn). Named in 1996 to the National Film Registry, this amiable comedy earned Oscar nominations for its sound and original screenplay and features one of the most memorable songs of the series in the Johnny Burke-Jimmy Van Heusen title number.


ROAD TO UTOPIA
1946, Universal, 90 min, USA, Dir: Hal Walker

For those who’ve been looking for Utopia, it turns out it’s somewhere in Alaska. This fourth Hope-Crosby comedy casts the duo as turn-of-the-century vaudevillians who head for the Klondike when they get their hands on the map to a gold mine; the ever-charming Dorothy Lamour is the map’s rightful owner. As the film’s narrator, humorist Robert Benchley gets in some hilarious quips, but Bing and Bob don’t need much help - ROAD TO UTOPIA is one of their funniest pairings
