Danny Kaye is wonderful as the nervous and overlooked Walter Mitty in this classic film. The short story it is based on is nowhere near as spectacular as the movie, but still shares a special glow with it. Virginia Mayo sparkles as the damsel in distress that Walter must save from numerous recurring villians and hazards. Together, they bring this story of a simple man with fantastic daydreams excellently to the screen. A very good film to watch with family.
