The Crosby-Hope-Lamour duet is on the road again, this time in a safari through Zanzibar. Crosby, who dishes out corn by the carful, is hampered by a raft of second-rate tunes, but fits nicely with the flimsy-acting, fully-dressed La Lamour.

Bubbling Bob, better than ever, is the vehicle's only Hope, and keeps the show rolling with a laugh every minute on the minute. Known as the human bat, cannonball, and dynamo, he fights his way through cannibals, a gorilla, and a Crosby, but is not sugar-daddy enough to win marsh-mallow-momma Lamour.

Without the co-feature, Dead Men Tell, the show would have a hard time climbing out of the B ranking, but this latest Charlie Chan is different enough to be clever. Sidney Toler, Warner Olan's successor as China's Confucius-Sherlock Holmes combine manages to keep a boatload of psychopathic treasure hunters, a pirate ghost, and his number-two son well in tow. If you can see Chan. Even if you can't, see Hope--the dope.
