Product Description

Product Description

Danny Kaye shines as Georgi in this 1949 satirical musical comedy about a lovable buffoon who wanders into a town where he is mistaken for the Inspector General by its corrupt mayor. Fearing exposure, the mayor and his equally crooked councilors make attempts to assassinate him, but the kindly townspeople are on Georgi’s side. Loosely based on the play by Nikolai Gogol, this Henry Koster gem ranks among Danny Kaye’s most celebrated movies. Newly Remastered!

5.0 out of 5 stars ROAN GROUP DVD is the best! Oct. 14 2002
Format:DVD
Alot has been said about this wonderful movie, but with several versions offered, which DVD is the best? I learned the hardway, buying several copies until I decided for the more expensive ROAN GROUP DVD. They mastered their DVD from a very nice 35mm TECHNICOLOR print, the other DVD's I bought were mastered from 16mm EASTMANCOLOR prints (grainy, dark, and pale colors). It is worth it to pay the higher price, you get what you pay for.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware faded Alpha Video transfer from 16mm Oct. 20 2009
Format:DVD
Danny Kaye, one of the best comic actors ever, deserved better than this dull dvd transfer from what is clearly a faded 16mm print. Danny Kaye's hair should be reddish. His uniform in this film, along with many of the uniforms of the other characters, should show brilliant red and blue tones. Greens should not looked washed out. Further, the very end title of the film is clipped. This cheapo dvd bears a striking resemblance to another which was being flogged for 88 cents at bargain stores awhile back! The true Technicolor transfer referred to by another reviewer would be much better, if in fact it were available new at any reasonable price. If you just have to see the film this version from this outfit, Aplha Video, is barely acceptable. Five stars for the film, but only two for the dvd.

This crazy story about mistaken identity is a classic the whole family can enjoy! I've been watching it since I was a kid. This was my husband's first Danny Kaye experience! Totally worth every second of watching my husband's mirth as he watched this movie! Don't miss out on this timeless classic!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun!!! Feb. 1 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Danny Kaye is superb in this movie about a bumble who is mistaken for an Inspector General, and how he pulls it off is worth the price of the film. The music is marvelous, and Kaye's machinations as he sings and dances to it are classic. Many lessons of life are involved in this movie. Friendship, loyalty, and especially "honesty" come to play, and the ending is so genuine, that it almost brought tears to my eyes. Highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! May 31 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is almost as good as The Court Jester, also staring Danny Kaye. He is a travelling sales man who is mistakenly thought to be the Inspector General by a small corupt village. There is alot of homor and singing and all in all very entertaining. It's one you can watch over and over without getting sick of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A DANNY KAYE FAN Feb. 1 2002
Format:DVD
I have just purchased The Inspector General. As i am still a 59 year old teenager i remember seeing it when it first came out. My favourite Danny Kaye movie is still The Court Jester but this is close second. So many funny characters including the great Alan Hale who will always be remembered as Little John to Errol Flynn`s Robin Hood. Elsa Lancaster as the Mayors wife, Gene Raymond ( with a wonderful hair style ) as the Mayor and of course Walter Slezak as phony medicine man who enlists the simple minded Danny for his wicked ways.Danny Kaye was always at his best playing characters who were certainly not the sharpest tools in the box. An absolute must for any Danny Kaye fans collection
