Day 09 - Best scene ever

LOL - I've already listed one scene I love, from Carry On, Up The Khyber!

Today is one scene from one of my favourite actors, Danny Kaye.  He has one some brilliant work ... including playing twin brothers, or an identical person in at least 3 films.

There are a lot of films of his that have some great scenes ... in White Christmas you see him dancing with Vera Ellen, but he is most famous for his tongue twisting scenes and songs. The most famous one, is this scene from The Court Jester in which he has to fight a duel ... but is being helped by the maid of the princess ... in that she places a pellet of poison in one of the cups. So, this means, he can use the other cup for the toast ....

In fact we are all Danny Kaye films, so that when we were in New York in 1989 we went to Prospect Park, as in Wonder Man he is murdered on a bridge there ... and then meets his identical twin, who solves the crime!  Yes, we had our picture taken on the bridge there!
