The plot involves H & C playing two vaudevillians in Melbourne, Australia who have both proposed to the same girl, hence starting a chase that has them hopping a train to nowhere, where they find jobs as deep sea divers that take them to the south seas where they meet Lamour through her villainous cousin who hires them. The usual rivalry for her affections ensues and then a whole farce involving treasure, forced marriage and animals develops. There are guest appearances by Humphrey Bogart and Martin and Lewis in this little gem, along with Jane Russell and it's all done to a comic turn. Hope is in great form here and the production itself pretty much follows his lead. The in jokes, like they do in MOST of Hope's better movies, never stop!
A scene from the movie: Bob Hope is attacked by an admiring female gorilla who has taken a shine to him. His plea of help to his buddy Bing Crosby?
"Do something, throw a rock, hit ONE of us!" It's lines like that, that make me grab my sides in laughter. You want more? You need to see the picture then. The old adage, "They don't make 'em like that anymore." is very true. These road pictures were made for one reason: fun. Bob and Bing got to have knock down fights, steamy and sometimes laughable love scenes with Dorothy Lamour, plus witty ad-libbing that will make you wonder how anyone knew what was coming next. So, kick back and relax with a pina colada while you watch this one. Bing: ...and you could be the dishwasher. Bob: Me? No, you be the dishwasher, you can stack 'em behind your ears to dry!
