Goofs:
Continuity: When Jeff and Orville are seated on the shore after the ship wreck, Jeff inserts his dry cigarettes into his left breast pocket, with the tops visible. They disappear, however, when the camel makes its entrance, and are never seen again. They can't have fallen into the pocket since Jeff had pushed them to the bottom of the pocket.See more »
Quotes:
Turkey Jackson:Aunt Lucy. I can see her now, lying on her dying bed, looking at you with those big, trusting eyes. 'Before I go, Jeff, promise me one thing,' she said. 'Promise me you'll always be a friend to little Orville,' she said. 'No matter what happens, you'll never leave the little jerk,' she said. 'Promise me, Jeff, promise me,' she said.
Jeff Peters:Yeah, then she up and died before I had the chance to say no.

A 'Road Show 'Favorite, 25 July 2006
Author: ckattdance from United States

Another enjoyable 'Road Show! One of my Favorites.

Crosby and Hope are at their best in this one. Watch for the scene where Hope mimics a starving beggar in the street, its especially entertaining. No matter what Hope tries in the 'Road Shows' he is always foiled, with Crosby always the cool, smooth operator. Anthony Quinn does a superb performance as the domineering Sheik in this light hearted comedy, playing funny scenes as a straight man. Dorothy Lamour as the 'damsel in distress' is as Lovely as ever.

Hope and Crosby are a delightful team, their playful banter and comedic timing are on the money with this one. This is a 'Must See' comedy!
