Road to Zanzibar (1941)

This is the second of seven very popular "Road" movies starring Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and Dorothy Lamour. Hope and Lamour were big stars but Crosby was a superstar. He is still one of the best-selling recording artists and biggest movie box office earners ever. The acting of Hope and Crosby is so casual and effortless it looks like they could do it in their sleep. That's much of the appeal of the road movies, but in the 21st century it's hard to understand why they were ever so popular since the music and comedy and everything else are so outdated.

Hope and Crosby play two sideshow performers in Africa who are running from the law because they burned down a circus. Two women con them into taking a safari through the African jungle. One night when they are camped in the jungle and sleeping inside their tent, Hope sees something moving in his bed and pulls it out, only to discover that it's a huge snake, his slow realization of the danger is played for laughs. It's a huge fake snake, of course, and he tosses it away to be as quickly forgotten as any other silly gag in the movie.
