2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Susan Sloate, Author, FORWARD TO CAMELOT and STEALING FIRE on April 4 2003
Format: VHS Tape
A funny, warm, and perfectly wonderful musical -- the best kind of family entertainment. Danny Kaye is simply perfect as Red Nichols, the great jazzman of the 20's, and the bonus is the terrific music (many of which, I was surprised to discover later, were all Nichols' own songs). Wonderful work by Barbara Bel Geddes and the other featured players, especially the adorable little girl who plays Kaye's daughter. I've watched it again and again -- I think you will too.

This movie is a true classic. It's full of amazing music played by phenomenal musicians. The version of When The Saints Go Marching in by Louis Armstrong and Danny Kaye is worth watching the movie for. The story line is based on the life of Red Nichols - jazz coronet player, and his rise and fall from fame. It's a tear jerker ending and lots of laughs and moments to remember throughout. Sit with your popcorn on a rainy afternoon and enjoy what the movies used to be like. You'll be glad you did!

Format: VHS Tape
Isn't there a way for this great movie to be put on DVD and CD. In this day when there is so much inappropriate material in the movies and on TV, watching the Five Pennies is a wonderful breath of fresh air. My daughter and I have a special relationship partly because of this movie. On her wedding day I gave her five new pennies (1960) her birth date and we have watched this movie many times together. It would be so much better to watch and hear it on DVD/CD. My orginal long playing record is about wore out. Please contact those in the power and forward my request, I know it would be a great seller. Bill Williams

Frankly I have not seen a movie with Danny I did not like. Most of them I loved. I can not wait for "The Five Pennies" and "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" to go to DVD."Hans Christian Andersen" plus these two make up my personal favorites of Danny Kaye.I have the third and am just waiting for the other two. Others i can recommend are "court jester" and "the inspector general" as I own them on DVD and very much enjoy them.I dont know if this helps but, if you like comedy, and if you like drama, and if you like just plain fun, you will probably like all these movies.

This movie shows Danny Kaye at his best. Not only do we get to experience his signature comedy, but we also get to see another side of him. This is a touching story about a father's love for his daughter and should be seen by anyone who has ever known the kind of love where you would sacrifice everything for the happiness of another. This movie is far too neglected in its recognition as a great film.

One of my all-time favourites looked & sounded better than the original. Being a DVD, I was pleasantly surprised at the 16:9 format and surround sound.

This is a wonderful film, a real moving tear jerking classic. An excellent performance by Mr. Kaye, as always, and unique footage of Louis Armstrong. Wonderful jazz harmonies. When will this movie receive the credit it deserves and be released on remastered DVD and audio CD? Movie studios you have been told!!
