quokka Lyr Req: Danny Kaye Songs (100* d) RE: Lyr Req: Danny Kaye Songs 26 Jan 09

I absolutely adored Danny Kaye growing up. I videotaped 'The Court Jester' and 'Hans Christian Andersen' carefully editing out all of the ads. I must have watched them both hundreds of times, and used to delight in introducing friends to the wit and wisdom of this incredibly gifted entertainer. Even very young children used to love The Court Jester. There is so much in it. The scene where he is hiding in the bedroom after the witch puts the spell on him and every time fingers are clicked he switches personalities...the wagon ride with the Captain when he plays a deaf old man...the several languages spoken fluently by Giacomo...the hilarious scene where he is being knighted...I could go on and on! Now I'm going to go look for a copy on DVD - the videotape wore out a long time ago. Thanks for this thread, it's brought back a lot of happy memories!
