Road to Hong Kong (1962). This is the final Hope and Crosby movie. They play Chester and Harry, two hucksters. When Chester loses his memory, they are told that his only hope is to go to a lamasery where they have an herb that can not only restore one's memory but enhance it. Now through a case of mistaken identity they get there hands on some sensitive material and the only copy of it are in Chester's head. But unfortunately for them the high lama sent someone to get the herbs back thus making it impossible for to get the information. And the people who want it are willing to do whatever it takes to get it.
