Road to Morocco Review

Image for Road to Morocco

Two carefree castaways on a desert shore find an Arabian Nights city, where they compete for the luscious Princess Shalmar.


Road To Morocco is still arguably the best of the seven "Road" movies which were initiated purely by accident in 1940 with Road To Singapore. A light and lively showcase for a very under-rated double act, Road To Morocco was also unusual for its time in constantly drawing attention to itself as a movie.

A new brand of comic breeziness, the "Road" series easily bested the later Marx Brothers in the all-round entertainment stakes.

Watch this one again and it's worth it just to catch the look on Hope's face as he reads a book called How To Make Love In Six Lessons.
