I fell hopelessly in love with Danny Kaye when I was 8 years old, and I'm still crazy about him many years later. . . no other performer of whom I'm aware has ever shown his unique combination of comic virtuousity, tenderness, silliness, physical bravado and dramatic depth.
He could also really sing, not just comically but straightforwardly, in his naturally rich, sweet lyric-tenor voice. If you really listen to the "Inchworm" song, you will hear just how fine his voice really was.
The ballet sequences in the movie transfixed me as an eight-year-old ballerina wannabe. Maybe they look hokey to present-day grownups, but I bet most kids would immediately understand.
One of the best movies ever!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Childhood joy, adult appreciation! Feb. 28 2002
Format:VHS Tape
When I was 11 years old, I wanted to marry Danny Kaye when I grew up; my parents kindly explained to me that he was dead. I still don't really believe it, though -- Danny Kaye will always live on in the imaginations of his fans.
No comedian was ever so tender; no romantic actor was ever so silly. Danny Kaye is still my hero, and he always will be!

5.0 out of 5 stars Correction Dec 15 2003
By A Customer
I'd just like to make a correction on another customer review that I read of this movie. This was not Danny Kaye's last movie. I don't know what was, but in 1954, he did "White Christmas" with Bing Crosby, Vera Ellen and Rosemary Clooney. It's not a really important thing, I suppose, but I just wanted to make sure that the information was correct.

3.0 out of 5 stars Danny Kaye never disappoints Aug. 17 2001
For all the film's deficiencies, Danny Kaye, always an outstanding performer, manages to be engaging and quite delightful.
The plot has little to do with Hans Christian Andersen, and is based quite loosely on some of his tales, not his far from whismsical life. Only the happiest parts of Andersen's least troubling stories are included (in musical adaptation) - there is no hint of the writer of the Little Match Girl or the Red Shoes. This is strictly a vehicle for a warm, kind-hearted, naive Danny Kaye portrayal.
It is good entertainment, if taken as a Kaye act rather than for literary or artistic merit.

...the kind of thing I really like to watch especially around
the holidays. There is a generous helping of ballet in this
film, too, and you can even briefly see the famous Danish
dancer Eric Bruhn. The film is really aimed at family audiences,
but in a very off beat way. Danny Kaye is not a romantic hero,
but he is a charming performer who brings songs and stories
to the viewer while keeping his amature standing as a cobbler.
I recommend this if you need something to entertain the visiting
holiday crowd. It is pleasant and colorful and certainly not
likely to offend anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical story telling!! Feb. 1 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Danny Kaye is Hans Christian Andersen. There's no doubt about it after you see this film. His portrayal of this writer is winsome and magical, and the songs he weaves coming from the stories he writes and reads cause the children everywhere to want to get out of their classrooms and go the town square or valley to hear him tell them.
The one spot I had difficulty with was with the scenes where Hans falls in love with the ballerina, and while it may have some historicity, I found it a little distracting. But this is a small thing, and overall, this is a marvelous film and highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good kid's movie Feb. 6 2003
By Betsy
Format:VHS Tape
HAns Christian andersen is a good movie. Andersen (Danny Kaye) is a cobbler who can't stop telling stories for the little kiddies. This gets him in trouble with the top bananas in town, who vote to have him run out for making kids miss school. Andersen moves to Copenhagen, falls in love with a beautiful french ballerina, and gets himself famous for his stories, all the while going from song to song with true Kaye spirit. It was a good movie, but not one to be overly thrilled about.
