IA #40: Road to Bali (1952)

 Road to Bali (1952) on IMDb

Now this is just fun. The Internet Archive Top 100 needs more comedies like this one. Of the Bob Hope / Bing Crosby road movies, this is the only one in color, which was used to lavish effect. As usual Bob and Bing battle to save Dorothy Lamour as each wants her for himself.

Once again the IMDb users’ lack of enthusiasm for lightweight comedies pushed this further down the list than I would have preferred. A good review by Leonard Maltin and my thumb on the scale were enough to keep this perfectly silly story in the top 40.
