Today's feature is the last of the Road comedies featuring Republican actors Bob Hope and Bing Crosby. Today it seems like a spoof of James Bond 007 movies but it was released before "Dr. No." Lots of sci-fi and espionage slapstick with fun cameos from David Niven, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra and (funniest of all) Peter Sellers. The only Road movie shot in England rather than America.
good film. Bing and Bob were hilarious——

They made a “Road” picture in 1962? I thought they were all done and played out in the ‘40’s.

Yep. This was the final one. I believe that Bob and Bing were going to team up with George Burns for one more called “The Road To The Fountain of Youth” but Bing’s death in 1977 prevented it.
Streaming on Netflix, but only until 5/1/2013.
