Trust me when I say this is just the first of the Danny Kaye clips you’ll see this year. This clip comes from Kaye’s movie The Five Pennies (1959), .
I had SUCH a crush on him back when I first started watching the Golden Age musicals. I have as many of his films on DVD as I can get my hands on. I just love his work.
Louis Armstrong is such a great partner for this piece. Sit back and enjoy the patter and scat.
Can’t get enough?
Here’s another clip, from Kaye’s television series.
