Good early view of an up and coming star Danny Kaye
13 March 2002 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

In this Charles Kemper vehicle about a love struck youth who has to make it as an Eye doctor to prove to his father-in-law to be, that he is worthy of his daughter's hand. Danny Kay enters this 2 reeler half way through and steels the show with his double talking Russian Count routine as Doctor Charles Kemper first patient. Kemper's healing attempt on Danny Kaye proves to be hilarious, more importantly we see the comedic possibilities of a young Danny Kaye
