BCI (Brentwood) had done a wonderful job at transferring these two public domain "Road" movies. The color in "Road to Bali" is stunning...a few of the "big time" DVD companies would be wise to take a lesson from Brentwood.
The black and white "Road to Rio" is well done, though not quite as perfect as the color "Bali" ("Bali" was the only color movie made in the "Road" series). "Road to Rio" is transferred from a UCLA Archive edition of the movie. The sound needs to be turned up a little on this one...but that could be the result of the age of the movie and nothing more.
All in all, a wonderful addition to anyone's classic movie collection. No extras (outside of a Hope biography) and limited chapter marking...but it really doesn't matter.
Universal DVD.....are you paying attention? This is how to issue a DVD! No skips, no grain.

I bought this based on Yarbys review. Everything he said is correct. Where did BCI(Brentwood) get that print? The colors in "Bali" are stunning. On the title menu is a still of a dancer and she seems to floating on the screen. I can't praise the quality enough.

"Rio" is not perfect, just very good.

This set of Road To Rio and Road To Bali is quite good. The DVD and print quality is very good in this set, unlike some of the other releases in the Bob Hope Film Collection. It's great to see Gale Sondergaard and Jerry Colonna in Road To Rio.

I'm just chiming in to say I agree with Yarby - this set is excellent! Much beter than anyone has a right to expect from a public domain set.

The print of "Road to Bali" is absolutely the best I have ever seen (and I have owned other VHS & DVD versions). I would challenge M. Tracy to reveal what he or she considers to be a superior transfer of "Bali" as I have never seen a version this sharp with colors this vibrant.

The print of "Rio" is good - not on the same level as "Bali," but still a cut above what one usually finds on public domain releases.

As far as subject matter, I love and own all of the "Road" pictures, but consider "Bali" to be the series' highpoint.

Bob Hope and Bing Crosby continue with their "Road Trips" in these two extensions of fun and entertainment linking back to the first four Road pictures they made. It is worth the time you take to view these films and get away from the mess of today's world.

These "Road" pictures are amusing, feather-light entertainments, and this collection of the last two in the series is worth the modest coin requested, if one is a fan of Bob and Bing. The quality of the pictures and sound is excellent.

I just got this dvd set with the Bob Hope Tribute Collection "The road show series" and have to say I am pretty disappointed with the quality. Both movies are pretty grainy and a few of the frames have glitches. I mainly got this dvd because of "Road to Rio". I already own a dvd with "My Favorite Brunette" and "Road to Bali"Road to Bali/My Favorite Brunette. I bought this set thinking the quality would be much better then the version I owned and boy was I wrong! First chance I get I'm buying the single version of "Road to Rio". On another note Bob Hope Tribute Collection has amazing quality and I highly recommend it!Bob Hope Tribute Collection - The Road Show Series (The Road to Morocco / The Road to Singapore / The Road to Utopia / The Road to Zanzibar)

Another great Road show movie with Bing and Bob ! Lots of ad lib quips, improbable storylines, and Bing's beautiful baritone singing.

Great humor from Bob, Bing, and Dorothy. They are hysterical in both movies, but Road to Rio is by far the best of the Road movies. You will find yourself repeating, "I hate you, I loathe you, I despise you" over and over again. Excellent for the entire family.
