You know, Mr. Dingle, you have the most extraordinary mind I've ever heard of.
Oh, I wouldn't say that.
You're very modest, aren't you?
Yes, I guess, I am.
That's odd. If I had a mind like yours; in fact, if I had any mind at all; I'd be a brazen hussy! Ha-ha-ha.
There! I bet that's the first time you've laughed since you've read Professor Zimmel's inaccuracies of the Phoenician wars. Ha-ha-ha

Brilliant effects for the time and great fun to watch.
This is the first Danny Kaye film I've seen and I feel in love with what a wonderfully talented person he is. This film is great fun to watch and if you're looking for something that is light, funny, romantic, enjoyable, and has a lovely plot with good effects, this is it. Kaye is a charming, sweet, and appealing character, and when his ghost twin enters his body whenever he feels like it, his performance is even funnier, especially the scene in the wings of the theatre where he makes farmyard noises into the telephone! Definitely recommended to anyone who loves Kaye's comedy, or simply wants an hour or two of entertaining fun!
