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.
