Spuffy - in my dreams always here

100 Meme - Film # 45

I can't list a series of my favourite Danny Kaye films without including The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Walter Mitty, a daydreaming pulp-fiction writer with an overprotective mother, likes to imagine that he is a hero who experiences fantastic adventures. His dream becomes true when he accidentally meets a mysterious woman who hands him a little black book. According to her, it contains the locations of the Dutch crown jewels hidden since World War II. Soon, Mitty finds himself in the middle of a confusing conspiracy and has to admit that being a hero in real life isn't that easy.

This is yet another film starring Viginia Mayo as the girl who he has been dreaming about ... and then meets her in real life.

And here is one of his characters ... with a "tyoical" Danny Kaye song -

And having played in an orchestra I do smile at this song.
