The Road To… series is comprised of seven films starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour that were released between 1940 and 1962. If you watch Family Guy, you are most likely familiar with the song in the above video and the overall concept. Co-stars Bing and Bob are up there (in my mind at least) with the best ever silver screen pairings. My favorite of the series is Road to Utopia, which takes place in Alaska. For the uninitiated, Netflix has them all available to rent. Get to queuing.
Thanks to Lizzie who inspired this post by passing me this link of Bing Crosby fishing in Iceland.

I love the classics.
I’ve added these to my Netflix queue, thanks for pointing them out.

I know this is undoubtedly true, but it still saddens me that Family Guy is needed as a point of reference to these wonderful movies. Great post.
Wife is watching White Christmas. I needed a break, so I clicked on ACL, and looky what I find. No escaping Bing tonight.
am disappointed to not see a Man’s Christmas List 2010 edition, had high hopes on giving the wife a one stop shop for my shopping list this year haha
