Editorial Reviews

"The laughs come thick and fast" (Variety) in this seventh hilarious Road movie from Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. Cavorting through a series of madcap adventures with Joan Collins, DorothyLamour and Robert Morleyas well as Peter Sellers, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and David NivenCrosby and Hope dish out a "fricassee of jokes and gags" (Los Angeles Times) in what may be the wildest entry in their popular film series! Vaudevillians Harry (Crosby) and Chester (Hope) travel to Tibet to search for a drug to restore Chester's memory. Once they find the cure, Chesters memory becomes so good that he accidentally memorizes a secret formula for space navigation. Soon the two meet up with a beautiful spy (Collins) and get slightly sidetracked'to another planet!

The Bob Hope/Bing Crosby/Dorothy Lamour "Road" pictures were the most successful film series until someone named James Bond came along. The Road To Hong Kong was a belated final entry - a nice idea but one executed on a miserly budget when the stars were somewhat past their peak. The script roughly follows the dependable formula of the earlier films and, while not as funny or as charming as the classic Road To Morocco, still provides a fair amount of amusement. It is certainly not the overcooked turkey that some people claim.

Cheaply filmed in England in black and white on cardboard sets and with special effects of rocket ships that would have made Ed Wood proud, the film relies a lot on the audience's affection for Hope and Crosby. The interplay and patter of their double act, so finely tuned over the years, is still a major attraction. Poor Dorothy Lamour is reduced to a guest star spot while the female lead is given to Joan Collins looking amazingly fresh and extremely sexy. One of the main embarrassments of the film is the love scenes between a visibly aging Crosby and the svelte young Collins. But, apart from that, she works quite well with the old troupers. And Robert Morley has a fun turn as a Dr No-type villain.

For me, though, the real star is Bob Hope in his trademark role as a professional coward with delusions of being a great lover. Whether tossing off a succession of quips or performing slapstick (with the aid of an obvious double) he breathes more life into the film than it possibly deserves. One of Hope's best scenes is with a pre-international stardom Peter Sellers who plays an eccentric Indian doctor. It is both fascinating and funny to witness this encounter between comic geniuses from different generations.

Road to Hong Kong was the last Hope - Crosby Road film. Dorothy Lamour only makes an appearance in this film. Joan Collins is the love interest in the film - a beautiful spy for the top secret spy group The First Echelon.

Harry and Chester are a couple of con artists. When Chester loses his memory in an accident, they are sent to a Tibetan Lamasery. En route Chester is accidentally slipped a rocket fuel formula. While at the Lamasery, they find out about a rare herb that increases memory capacity. The boys know this will make a great mentalist act for vaudeville and still it. They steal a bottle and return home. As a test, Chester memorizes the formula. This sets the remainder of the film. The First Echelon wants their formula and will do anything to get it.

This being the final Road film, lots of guest stars including Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, David Niven and an early performance by Peter Sellers.

This is the most polished of the Road films. Written by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank, who have collaborated on a number of his films including their Oscar nominated Bob Hope film The Facts of Life and Frank's best solo film, A Touch of Class. Just sit back and enjoy.

I know that many people consider this the worst of the Road movies, but I would consider it my favorite. While dissapointed in not having Dorothy in there more than just a cameo appearance, I think the rest of the movie makes up for it! The banana feeding scene was the best! (Hope and Crosby being tested in place of the monkeys on the spaceship) This movie also had some other good cameo appearances.

This 1962 release of "Road To Hong Kong" marked the last appearance and "Road" picture the two legendary entertainers would ever make.While this film may not be as sharp as some of their original efforts of the 40s,it is still a quite enjoyable jaunt and worth seeing.
This United Artists film was shot in England at the famed Shepperton Studios.Melvin Frank,who was to become involved a short four years later in one of my favourite comedies "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum",produced it.Toronto born Robert Farnon who conducted the Canadian Band of the AEF during WW2,does the honours in the music department;along with composers Van Heusen and Cahn.
The film opens with a song and dance routine of "It's Teamwork" on a vaudeville-like stage with a scenery back drop listing of all their past Road movies.The story starts in Hong Kong where a desperate Joan Collins, who works for an unspecified foreign power(" the third echelon"),is talking to American security people who are baffled hearing Amercian voices in a space ship going to the Moon(an obvious nod to the then heated space race between the U.S. and Russia).The story then desolves into events which led to that moment.We find Chester and Harry with yet another get-rich scheme in Calcutta,India with a flying device.Chester of course gets roped into flying it with disastrous results.He ends up in the hospital with no memory.A doctor played by Peter Sellers(who does a nice comedic turn) recommends he go to a monstary in Northern India to regain his memory.At the airport they bump into agent Joan Collins who mistakes Chester for another agent and gives him secret papers by mistake.
