When the widowed ape is holding George (Crosby) in her lap, Crosby's socks switch between red in one shot and pale yellow in the next shot. Skipping back and forth - the scene must have been filmed over more than one day. See more »
From the very first Road picture Hope and Crosby were known for their ad-libbing. In fact when they guested on each other's shows the two of them would take the script and insert some of their own lines to try and catch the other off-guard.
In this Road picture I will swear that the moment the boys and Dotty Lamour were washed ashore on the proverbial south sea island, the picture is one long ad-lib. I am sure the director said, here's the plot situation just make it up as you go. It's got that kind of spontaneity.
Look for 'guest' appearances by Jane Russell, Humphrey Bogart, Martin and Lewis and Bob Crosby in this wacky romp.
Says Dotty: "I love you Bob, I love you Bing, my heart's in a real wing ding." So do we all.
