Danny Kaye 100 -- January 18, 2013

Danny Kaye was a famous performer and humanitarian.  His acting, singing and dancing abilities were wonderful, but he always made me uncomfortable.  I sometimes attribute that to seeing Hans Christian Anderson on tv when I was very young.  I got scared, and I don't remember why.  He appeared in many big-budget movies produced by Samuel Goldwyn.  A Song is Born was a remake of Ball of Fire.  I liked Ball of Fire better.  Barbara Stanwyck played her part better than Virginia Mayo.
