The 1940s’ hottest movie trio—Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour—chart a course for comedy, music and romance in Road to Singapore. Running out on his stuffy desk job and marriage-minded girlfriend, Josh Mallon (Crosby) links up with sailor-buddy Ace (Hope) and sets sail for the farthest point on the map: Singapore. On the exotic island of Kaigoon, they meet Mima (Lamour), a lovely young dancer on the run from her domineering fiancé. Josh and Ace rescue Mima, who moves into their shack, cooks, cleans, sings—and quickly becomes the object of their wise-cracking war for her affections. Road to Singapore was the initial entry in the legendary Hope-Crosby-Lamour Road series that delighted moviegoers for years to come. The Victor Schertzinger-helmed film was the top-grosser of 1940 and features Charles Coburn, Jerry Colonna and Anthony Quinn in key supporting roles.
