(1942, 82 minutes, black & white) Directed by David Butler. Stowaways Jeff (Bing Crosby) and Orville (Bob Hope) end up desperate and shipwrecked on the North African coast, where they shanghi a camel and journey across the desert to Morocco. For some fast cash, Jeff sells Orville into slavery. But Orville comes out ahead: His owner turns out to be the luscious Princess Shalmar (Dorothy Lamour), who announces plans to wed Orville. Naturally, Jeff would like to save Orville from his "dire" fate, even if it means taking his place! But they haven't figured on virile desert chieftain Mullay Kassim (Anthony Quinn), who has his eyes on the princess himself.
