NOTABLE: In 1996 this motion picture was added to the National Film Registry in the Library of Congress.

Road to Morocco received two Oscar nominations; Best Sound, Recording, and Best Writing, Original Screenplay.

The scene where a camel spits in Bob Hope’s face was the camel’s own doing, with Bing Crosby’s  reaction proving to be so funny it was left in the picture.

In 2006, Premiere voted The Road to Morocco as one of “The 50 Greatest Comedies of All Time.”

Personal Note: Another of the very entertaining ‘Road’ pictures, and quite possibly the best of the bunch.
