Danny Kaye – Best of the Danny Kaye Show
Danny Kaye was at the height of his popularity when The Danny Kaye Show debuted on CBS in the autumn 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.
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.
Also featured in this collection are Michelle Lee, Buddy Greco, John Gary, Joe & Eddie, Lovelady Powell and Alan Young. Series regulars include Harvey Korman, Jamie Farr, Joyce Van Patten and orchestra leader Paul Weston.
Among the numerous gems found in The Best of the Danny Kaye Show:
> Danny conducting the Television City Philharmonic
> A spoof of The Twilight Zone with Rod Serling
> Performances of Danny Kaye classics Pavlova written by Danny’s wife Sylvia Fine and Ballin the Jack from On the Riviera
Whether experiencing the joy that is Danny Kaye for the first time, or revisiting his extraordinary gifts, viewers of all ages will find the irresistible and legendary entertainer at the top of his game on The Best of the Danny Kaye Show.
