Trivia

Bob Hope's and Bing Crosby's final Road movie. Two years after Crosby's death, Hope announced the possibility (in earnest) of doing "The Road to the Fountain of Youth" with George Burns, but nothing came of it. See more »

Goofs

In the opening musical sequence, title cards for the previous "Road" movies appear, but all are incorrect in that they prepend "The" to the title. Only this movie actually has "The" at the beginning of the title. See more »

Quotes

Harry Turner: [gazing out an airplane window] There she lies, Chester - Hong Kong.
Chester Babcock: Yeah, what a monument to fried rice.

Hilarious moments, well worth watching.

I liked this movie a lot! The cameo appearances are great and the gorilla space suit/ banana and milk auto-feed scenes are roll around on the floor, tears in your eyes, make you smile when you think about it for the rest of your life funny!
