The Best of the Danny Kaye ShowStreaming Video - 2014
Danny Kaye was at the height of his popularity when The Danny Kaye Show debuted on CBS in the fall of 1963. A pair of Broadway hits 'Lady In the Dark' and 'Let's Face It' and a succession of classic films including: 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty', 'The Inspector General', 'Knock on Wood', 'Up In Arms', 'The Court Jester', 'Hans Christian Andersen', and 'White Christmas' made Danny Kaye one of the biggest stars in show business. His international humanitarian work for UNICEF and sold out concerts at places like the London Palladium and the Palace Theater in New York helped make Danny Kaye a worldwide sensation. He won the Emmy Award for best variety performer in 1964, and the show was honored with three more Emmys, including outstanding variety series. The Danny Kaye Show was the perfect showcase for its star's unequaled range of talents. In this collection of six uncut episodes available now for the first time - Danny sings with Ella Fitzgerald, Nana Mouskouri and Harry Belafonte. He sings and dances with Liza Minnelli and Gene Kelly, and deftly clowns his way through comedy sketches with Art Carney, Rod Serling, Jackie Cooper, and a certain perennially 39-year old legend of comedy, who makes an unannounced cameo appearance.
