The long nonsense word that Peter Sellers says during his scene is actually the name of a Welsh town, known for being the longest place name anywhere: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch. See more »
Neither Chester nor Diane ever give the hotel's name. There is no explanation how she could have found their hotel after their return from Tibet. See more »
One of my favourite of the road movies. The Peter Sellers "Indian Doctor" cameo is worth seeing all by itself. And then Hope and Crosby still had wonderful chemistry. Joan Collins is as beautiful as Elizabeth Taylor in her prime. The sequence -stolen from Chaplin's Modern Times- with the feeding matching is hilarious. It's just unfortunate that Bing's brother Norm could not have been more a part of this wonderful production. Bing's son Harry was cast briefly in the roll of a small baby camel but due to budget restrictions the part went to Trunk Davis. By the way the shots of Hong Kong early 1960s? Compared to now are shocking!
