Naturally, Jeff would like to rescue Turkey from this "dire" fate, even if it means taking his place!

Anthony Quinn returns as the villain. He is the only actor, apart from the three leads, to play a similar character in two separate "Road" pictures, making him a semi-regular. He first appeared as Caesar in Road to Singapore (1940). See more »

Hope and Crosby's on screen chemistry makes it fun to watch.
You can't go into a viewing of any Hope and Crosby picture expecting a strong story or plot,nor should you expect the acting to be great.Bob Hope's true strength was stand up comedy,not acting,and I think he knew that.That's why we only saw him in roles where he could be pretty much rely on his stand up skills.Bing Crosby,on the other hand,had a knack for acting even though he was primarily a singer.In fact,his knack won him an Oscar two years after he did this film,so you know he took it seriously.Since Hope's acting skills were not strong,I thing that Bing saw these films they did together as a chance to relax and have a little fun,and to take a break from the seriousness of the acting profession.Despite their contrasting talents,there is no denying the great chemistry that existed between the pair,which makes Road to Morocco fun to watch.Also,if I may add,Dorothy Lamour and Dona Drake are also fun to watch,but for a different reason.I suppose that's just the typical male in me talking. ;-)
