Good Doc on Danny
3 January 2001 | by joots01See all my reviews

This was a wonderful documentary on that legendary talent Danny Kaye! He was such a talent and through interviews with Carl Reiner, Harry Belafonte, and his daughter Dena Kaye we get to explore it in this one hour biography. I taped this off my PBS station and had only watched Secret Life of Walter Mitty but this documentary made me want to check out some of other Danny Kaye movies.
