Description by OLDIES.com:
This adventure comedy, starring Bob Hope and Bing Crosby is the sixth entry in their madcap Road series. Hope & Crosby play American vaudevillians, George Cochran and Harold Gridley, stranded in Australia and desperate to avoid a dual shotgun wedding. To escape, they sign on as deep-sea divers for an evil South Sea Island prince, and then the fun begins in earnest. They hunt for treasure, wrestle an octopus, fall in love with the same princess, befriend a gorilla, and encounter an active volcano. Road to Bali is packed with slapstick, "insider" jokes, witty gags, and an exciting array of guest appearances, including Bing's brother Bob Crosby, Jane Russell and Humphrey Bogart.
The only color road picture Bob Hope and Bing Crosby ever made, the inimitable comedy duo set out to rescue a native princess, the lovely Dorothy Lamour, from a plethora of jungle dangers. Guest appearances by Dean Martin, Jerry Lewis, and Jane Russell.
George and Harold are two vaudevillians forced to hightail it out of Australia by a young woman's overprotective father. The wisecracking duo end up on the island of Bali, where they soon go to work for Prince Arok -- and become smitten with the princess, Lalah. But when George and Harold discover that Arok intends to steal a treasure belonging to Lalah, they try to foil his greedy plans. Will they win the princess' heart if they succeed'
