4.0 out of 5 stars Full array of talents April 29 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Probably one of Danny kayes best known movies, and never seems to lose it's charm. A very thin story line is beautifully padded by the multiple personalities played out in the daydreams of our erstwhile anti-hero. A wonderful cameo from Boris Karloff adds to the comic excitement of a fast paced story, and Kaye delivers brilliantly with impeccable timing during each sub plot. Almost a multiple picture in picture movie, the ending really holds no suprises, but gently jogs the viewer along, without some of the kitch so prevalent in other movies of the era. Danny Kaye really was a comic genius, and in some ways the picture reflects his own life which was widely believed to be that of a painfully shy and reserved man. A great family film, my daughters aged 12 and 14 actually stayed glued to the film throughout, proving that "old fashioned" homely family films can stand the test of time with contemporary audiences. A worthy addition to any collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great film! Oct. 23 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I really enjoy this Danny Kaye film and would give it more starsif I could! It is very entertaining and funny.Virginia Mayo and Danny Kaye make a wonderful couple in it and it's very romantic and lovely to watch, with great costumes also and is very funny and enchanting as well. It's a film for children as well, the entire family would enjoy it. Danny Kaye is one of the best comedines ever. This is a must see film. They don't make them like this anymore. Such innocent fun and old fashioned romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Predecessor to Whose Line actor Ryan Stiles! Dec 18 2000
Format:VHS Tape
When I first read the story of "Walter Mitty" in my Honors English class, I wasn't all that interested in it. However, when my teacher brought in the movie, Danny Kaye quickly became one of my favorite actors of all time! The movie got my cynical, freshman class (that usually doesn't laugh at anything except the local "court jester", if you understand) laughing as well! I absolutely enjoyed the number when Mr. Kaye is recalling his old music teacher. I feel as though he was, no IS, a predecessor to another of my favorite actors, Ryan Stiles. I just turned 15 and I love this very talented actor and this very hillarious movie. I strongly suggest that you get your own children to watch the works of Mr. Kaye ASAP. His acting talent needs to be shared with everyone! (By the way, the Thurber story is very good as well.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Dreamer Oct. 26 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Like Steven Foster's folk song, which Virginia Mayo tinkles on the piano, this film is simple but perfect, i.e. simply perfect.
It's laughable and lovable, thrilling and romantic. Danny and Virginia are a dream team, this one being their best collaboration. This movie has been a life's companion to me, since I saw it at the age of four or five.

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get better than this! Feb. 28 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Ta-pocketa-pocketa-pocketa. . . the funniest movie made between the Marx Brothers and Monty Python. You have to see "Walter Mitty" -- so you'll know what Woody Allen was trying to do.
If you have not yet seen "Walter Mitty" then I envy you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks to my English teacher! Dec 18 2000
Format:VHS Tape
If this can happen to me, a freshman, it can happen to you. "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is one great movie that I suggest every cynical person out there should sit down and watch. Mr. Kaye is hillarious and he'll make you a believer. I never thought that anyone was as funny as Ryan Stiles (one of my favorite actors), as talented as Mark Hamill (another favorite), and as lovable as Michael J. Fox (another favorite). The best number in this movie is...well, which could I choose from? I'd have to say that the scene where Mr. Kaye is imitating an old teacher of his. It got my class laughing...tell your kids to watch this movie. The younger ones may not get it, but you should still let them watch it. To this day, every time I read my Walter Mitty story in my reading book, I always think of my research teacher saying, "So, how's Walter Mitty doing?" I have to get this movie for my friends to see!
