It's hard to imagine a 'Road' picture without
Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. Both under contract to Paramount Pictures, studio
executives became aware of a sparkling chemistry between the pair and instructed
writers Frank Butler and Don Hartman to find a suitable property for them. A
project for George Burns and Gracie Allen that had come to nothing was
considered but rejected, so they dug out one of their own scripts for a film
intended for Jack Oakie and Fred MacMurray entitled "Road To Mandalay" but
turned down by the duo. Revised with suitable gags and song-slots, it became
"Road To Singapore" for Bing and Bob. Romance and beauty was provided by another
Paramount star, Dorothy Lamour, a lady who would be well worth fighting for, as
illustrated by the comments that open this collection of songs from the six
'Road' pictures made between 1939 and 1952.
