Road to Zanzibar (Special Edition)
Directed by Victor Schertzinger
In this second entry in the Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour Road series, Chuck (Crosby) and Fearless (Hope) are really in hot water—as guests of honor at a cannibal feast while stranded in the heart of Africa. American sideshow performers Chuck and Fearless are stranded in the jungle after their human cannonball act starts a fire that burns down the circus. They become entangled with a larcenous pair of entertainers from Brooklyn (Lamour and Una Merkel) anxious to separate them from their bankroll. Duped into accompanying the ladies on a safari, Chuck and Fearless soon find themselves in the clutches of savage tribesmen who pit Fearless against a gorilla in a wild wrestling match. A blend of jokes, zany adventures and songs, Road to Zanzibar became one of the top-grossing films of 1941. Directed by Victor Schertzinger, who also directed the first film in the series, Road to Singapore.
