They called them the "Road Pictures" - a series of comedies staring Bing Crosby and Bob Hope made over the course of twenty years by Paramount Pictures.
They contained a unique mix of comedy gags, musical numbers, adventure in exotic locations and ad-libbed banter from two on-screen and off-screen friends.
The original screenplay for the first film, The Road to Singapore, was originally written for George Burns and Gracie Allen. When they turned it down a number of other options were considered. Someone finally came upon the idea of pairing Bing Crosby with Bob Hope and one of the most famous early movie franchises was born.
We compiled some clips from all seven movies ... please enjoy.
