Starring Danny Kaye, directed by Henry Koster.
Clown prince of Hollywood, Danny Kaye, stars in this wonderful and warm hearted comic musical about a case of mistaken identity. Kaye plays Georgi, a common con man who is mistaken for the Inspector General, and whose life may consequently be in serious danger, with hilarious results! Laughter, sight gags galore and amazing musical numbers highlight this classic family friendly film based on the classic play by Nikolai Gogol.
This CMNYK screening is going down at the Darkside Cinema on Tuesday, November 24th, and the fun starts at 7:00 PM. As always, admission is FREE, but donations are welcomed and benefit the Darkside Cinema renovations. The show will be preceded by an intro from Trader Joe’s frozen chicken potstickers lover, Ygal Kaufman, as well as newsreels, shorts, cartoons and other weird goodies from 1949 to make the experience extra authentic. See you all there!
