    5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Set August 22, 2004
    Format:DVD
    If you don't like classic comedy, you're not going to like this either. But for me, this is my first stop when I need to take a break from the Marx Brothers (who I watch way too much). These films are exhibit A for Bob Hope's comedic talents, and Bing's cooler than you or I will ever be. Plus with Bing around, I'm actually happy to listen when the songs come, which is not the case for most 30's and 40's Hollywood films. Morocco is my favorite, but any of these four films can brighten a dark day. There are a few decent extras on this set, and for $20 it's a steal. If you're willing to watch a comedy made before "Animal House," you should go ahead and take the plunge into Hope and Crosby's world.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Patty-Cake, Patty-Cake, Baker's Man... May 11, 2004
    By A Customer
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Wow! The first four Hope and Crosby road pics on one DVD! What can you say? The first two, ROAD TO SINGAPORE and ROAD TO ZANZIBAR (though still funny) are still trying to flesh out the chemistry of the duo and the two actors adhere to the scripts. Then, they hit their stride of hilarity and break out in ROAD TO MORROCCO and continues in ROAD TO UTOPIA. However, in ROAD TO ZANZIBAR evidence of what is to come in Hope and Crosby's future pairings comes near the end of the film. The two are captured by cannibals in Africa and are tested to see if they are gods (sort of a variation of THE MAN WHO WOULD BE KING). Hope's character is forced to wrestle a gorilla in a caged match. This is very funny as Hope shows his ability for physical comedy. Then, the climax is when they are about to be literally cooked for dinner. They use their patented "patty-cake" routine to escape from the cannibals. This is even more hilarious than the gorilla scene. Then, in ROAD TO MOROCCO, the famous ad-libbing and rapid fire delivery of dialogue is apparent and the film is zany from beginning to end as the duo are involved with a Moroccan Princess (Dorothy Lamour) and an angry Shiek (Anthony Quinn). Then, in ROAD TO UTOPIA the two go to Alaska for the gold rush and get involved in a case of mistaken identity. Overall, the four films showcase one of the great pairings in the history of entertainment and some of the funniest and successful film franchises. The DVD package has little extras except for a couple of sing-along features and liner notes, but having the four films on one disc at a price lower than some other collection discs is worth it.

    Bob Hope and Bing Crosby + Dorothy Lamour made six "Road" pictures for Paramount between 1941 and 1953:
    1) Road to Singapore - 1941
    2) Road to Zanzibar - 1940
    3) Road to Morocco - 1942
    4) Road to Utopia - 1946
    5) Road to Rio - 1947
    6) Road to Bali - 1953 (the only one in color)

    Paramount's pre-1948 catalog is now owned by Universal, which has a spotty record of reissuing these wonderful films on DVD.
    Films 1-4 are available in three different editions:

    Best, but most expensive, is 4 movies on 4 DVDs (2002): Bob Hope Tribute Collection - The Road Show Series (The Road to Morocco / The Road to Singapore / The Road to Utopia / The Road to Zanzibar)
    (available separately).

    Worst is 4 movies on 1 double-sided DVD (2004). REVIEWED HERE.
    Double-sided DVDs fail at an alarming rate.

    The most recent edition (2012) is The Bob Hope and Bing Crosby Road to Comedy Collection
    Two DVDs, with a double feature on one side of each disc (not double-sided, thank God).
    Picture quality is equivalent to the 2002 4 disc version, but the price is a lot less.
    Some of the "extras" from the 2002 4 disc version were left out. The only important loss was the movie trailers.
    All three versions are closed-captioned.
    At the price, this is the new recommended version.

    Annoyingly, films 5 and 6 were left out of each collection.
    Paramount stupidly allowed the copyright to expire on these films, so they are now in the Public Domain.
    Lots of inexpensive copies are available on DVD from various cheapo labels.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection, But Where Are the Other Three? June 1, 2004
    Format:DVD
    This collection of the first four Road pictures is well worth having. The picture quality is excellent and all four films are loaded on one double-sided disc. But where are the remaining three Road pictures? This would have made the ultimate Road collection. Disappointing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars So Happy April 26, 2007
    Format:DVD
    I looked for the Road To movies a few years back with no luck. I checked back recently, and was pleased to find this collection of the first four- and, arguably, the best four- films in the series. The package is nice, and the movies are on one double-sided DVD, which is a nice change from the unnecessarily disc-heavy sets we see so often. The transfer of the movies isn't perfect, but they're old, and it's still fantastic in both sound and picture. All four movies are wonderful, though Road To Singapore is a bit slow in coming off the ground. Hope and Crosby are revered as one of the best comedy duos of all time, and this set proves why. I'm young, and I love these movies. They're great fun for all ages, and I highly recommend getting them. Especially for that price!
