Danny Kaye, with his curly blonde hair gets to be the inspector general for a Russian? French? town. They can’t seem to decide which it is. But it doesn’t matter, because Danny Kaye isn’t either one.

It’s very silly and funny. Danny Kaye does vocal acrobatics with his sound effects. The main plot device depends on the fact that Danny (a poor gypsy boy) cannot read.

I’d never seen Danny Kaye before. He’s pretty good.

    The Inspector General is one of Kaye’s best movies, it is true. However, the absolute best Kaye film is The Court Jester, in which he is a bumbling Robin Hood type masquerading as a killer.
