  • Benchley actually opens the film to explain his narration, which is definitely different
  • While I love that aspect of the film, I really wasn't fond of it as much as I like the others
  • So while Road to Utopia has the signature formula of the Road pictures and while I'm happy with the ending, I'm not that crazy with how things transpire and it keeps me from enjoying this movie as much as others

      Road to Utopia was the fourth movie in the Road picture series. Released in 1946 (but filmed in ‘44), Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, and Dorothy Lamour starred in the film. This time a couple of different things happened, beginning with a narrator (Robert Benchley) being used to help bridge the transitions the film goes through. Benchley actually opens the film

      to explain his narration, which is definitely different.

      Hope’s and Crosby’s characters are a couple of song and dance men who head up north to the Yukon for their fortunes. It’s the turn of the century. This part of the movie, though, is told through the flashback. It actually opens with the two as old men and, surprise, Hope has Lamour.


      • That’s the only time that happens in the Road pictures.

        While I love that aspect of the film, I really wasn’t fond of it as much as I like the others. Being in Alaska, they used dog sleds and I’m not a believer in those. It’s an animal rights thing for me. Then there’s just something about the look the

        guys take on there. It doesn’t fit them, even in pretending. I guess you could say I didn’t enjoy the aesthetics of the film.

        So while Road to Utopia has the signature formula of the Road pictures and while I’m happy with the ending, I’m not that crazy with how things transpire and it keeps me from enjoying this movie as much as others.
