Road to Morocco (Special Edition) (Blu-ray)
Directed by David Butler
Like Webster’s dictionary, Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour are “Morocco-bound” in the third and considered by most to be the best entry in the popular Road series. Survivors of a Mediterranean shipwreck, stowaways Jeff (Crosby) and Orville (Hope) paddle to a North African shore and hitch a camel ride across the desert to Morocco. In order to buy food, Jeff sells Orville into slavery—but Orville’s owner turns out to be the luscious Princess Shalmar (Lamour), who quickly offers to become his wife. Unfortunately, the true reason for the Princess’s proposal soon becomes clear. Her prophet has warned that her first husband will meet a violent death within days of their marriage, so she decided to marry Orville instead of her beloved Mullay Kasim (Anthony Quinn). Nominated for two Oscars® including Original Screenplay, Road to Morocco is highlighted by Bing’s rendition of one of his best-loved songs, the unforgettable “Moonlight Becomes You,” and the memorable title song by Hope and Crosby. Directed by David Butler (They Got Me Covered).
