The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: On TV Saw at/with:
Rating: NR Year: 1947 Category: Comedy
Director: Norman Z. McLeod Time: 110:00:00 min. Writer: Ken Englund & Everett Freeman

Mine: Danny Kaye is really good. The movie is not so much.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Formula comedy casts Danny as milquetoast who dreams of manly glory. Not much Thurber here, but daydream sequences are lots of fun, and so is Kaye's famous ``Anatole of Paris'' patter number. Young Robert Altman, smiling and smoking a cigarette, appears as an extra in a nightclub scene with Kaye.

After reading the short story (really really short story...) I realize that the plot of this movie is terrible, but I love it anyhow because Kaye is simply amazing! What an endearing character -- Kaye is the perfect forgetful, clumsy, imaginative Mitty!!!
