Old Movie Teams

Weren’t they also in that other movie?

In Good Company on the Road To Morocco

Although the team of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby has 17 movies to its credit, for the most part the team is complete only when Dorothy Lamour is included. Ms. Lamour played an integral part in the first six of the Hope and Crosby Road pictures and appeared as herself in a cameo spot for the only other and final Road outing: The Road To Hong Kong (1962). Beyond these collaborations, Ms. Lamour and the boys teamed up in three other movies, playing themselves either in cameos or as part of variety acts:

Star Spangled Rhythm (1942)
Variety Girl (1947)
The Greatest Show on Earth (1952)

Two other movies were vehicles showcasing the comedic talents of all three, but with Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour playing the romantic leads and Bing Crosby appearing only briefly as disappointed executioner in My Favorite Brunette (1947) and not appearing, but being heard as the voice of a music box in They Got Me Covered (1943).
