The Road to Hong Kong was made in1962 at Shepperton Studios in England. It starred Bing Crosby and Bob Hope and features a host of other guest stars, many of whom come across as a little bit fresher and a lot funnier than the series reoccurring comedy duo. Not surprisingly this was the last of the Road to.. series of movies.
And - of no particular interest to anyone one other than me- it appears to be the first appearance of this particular space helmet which turns up the next year in Mouse on the Moon (1963) and then a little later on as part of the killer robots in The Earth Dies Screaming (1965)
Now that's kind of cool.
