Hope and Byrne had an act as Siamese twins as well, and danced and sang while wearing blackface until friends advised Hope he was funnier as himself.

In 1908 the family emigrated to the United States, sailing aboard the SS Philadelphia.
Deciding on a show business career, Hope and his girlfriend at the time signed up for dancing lessons.
Encouraged after they performed in a three-day engagement at a club, Hope formed a partnership with Lloyd Durbin, a friend from the dancing school.
From their first meeting in 1932, Hope and Crosby teamed not only for the "Road" pictures, but for countless stage, radio, and television appearances and many brief movie appearances together over the decades After the release of Road to Singapore (1940), Hope's screen career took off, and he had a long and successful run.
After an 11-year hiatus from the "Road" genre, he and Crosby reteamed for The Road to Hong Kong (1962), starring the 28-year-old Joan Collins in place of Lamour, whom Crosby thought was too old for the part.
