"...This is one of their better vehicles -- full of funny business with shaggy dogs, false beards and talking fish..."
This film finds the trouble-prone duo (Bing Crosby and Bob Hope) posing as a pair of escaped killers in an attempt to find the location of an Alaskan gold mine, with Dorothy Lamour playing the rightful heir to the mine. Academy Award Nominations: Best Original Screenplay.
The irrepressible Chester and Duke are back on the road again. This time around, the vaudevillians -- disguised as Alaskan bruisers -- are trekking to the Klondike with a newly-found map to a gold mine. A comedy of errors begins when the citizens of a rough and tumble miner's town mistake the boys for claim-jumpers. Saloon mistress Sal goes gunning for the luckless pair, whose treasure map just happens to have been her late father's property. Eventually, the three gold-hunters team up and begin searching for the mine together.
The film is peppered with in-house gags, and is the only "Road" movie to have colorful commentary by the unforgettable Robert Benchley.
