Haven't you seen The Court Jester (1956)? This is a great film. It's full of fancy sword play, dastardly villains and great comedic moments. A little bit of trivia here. Danny Kaye said in an interview that he had to pad his legs under his tights because he was too skinny.
Watch this and then see these other four films.
White Christmas (1954) This is one of my favorite Christmas classics. It's worth seeing just to see Crosby and Kaye do the "Sisters" number.
Hans Christian Andersen (1952) This was one of my most favorite films as a kid. I loved listening to Danny Kaye, as Hans Christian Andersen, sing his lovely stories to the children, especially "The Ugly Duckling."
The Inspector General (1949) Danny Kaye plays illiterate Georgi mistaken for The Inspector General.
Wonder Man (1945) He plays both Edwin Dingle and Buzzy Bellew. I love the scene where Danny Kaye writes with both his left and right hands simultaneously.
