Comedy Classics! week begins at Trailers from Hell today with director John Landis introducing 1942's "Road to Morocco," starring Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.

Third in the series of seven self-aware Hope-Crosby Road comedies, this Ishtar-like entry was one of the most popular. Full of Hollywood in-jokes and asides to the audience (much like Warner Bros cartoons), the Road pictures transcend their dated settings with a modernistic approach that has stood the test of time. Famous for an unplanned blooper where a camel spits in Hope's face. The duo's reactions were so funny that the bit was left in the final cut.
