"Hi there Mr. Jailer- did you see 'Road To Morocco' "


Bob Hope and Bing Crosby made 7 films together which feature them in a series of misadventures refered to as the "Road" movies. I found that there are many similarities between the Monkees TV show and the "Road" movies. Here are the ones I found.
