Where do I get a DVD "The Danny Kaye TV Show"?
16 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up on Danny Kaye movies & the show. I would love a DVD of the TV show. Is there any out there to purchase? Do you remember Fat Daddy ? ....what a hoot!!!

Just before he died I ran into him at a big hotel on Miami Beach. It was amazing I even recognized him, he had a golf hat on. So here I am this 20yr old woman back then acting like a nervous kid. I said, "Mr Kaye"? He said, "Yes" Then I rambled on about how much I enjoyed his movies . He shook my hand, said in a deep voice"What's your name young lady?" I told him , and floated back to my car. How silly someone can have that effect on you.. If it were the President I wouldn't have acted like that. Just show's how things from your childhood impact you.

Anyway does someone know also what were the BEST DANNY KAYE -MOVIES to buy? I only remember "The Inspector General".

Bye, SZ
