Celebrity Lunch Date: Celebrities Past 5

Whilst perusing the cobwebbed corners of my rather unused brain, I was trying to think of who should be today's poster celebrity. When the answer came tumbling like a polar bear on roller skates sliding down a slippery glacier. DUH!!!!

Danny Kaye!

How had I not thought of him sooner? He's only one of the funniest actors *ever*!!! 

I can't think of any movie he's in that doesn't just make your heart light. Even his "serious" rolls are fun. Granted, I've not seen everything he's ever been in- but what a guy. Singing, Dancing... and just down right hilarious.  Can you do this:

note the young and incredibly gorgeous Angela Lansbury and Glynnis Johns!
They just don't make movies like this any more- and it's a crying shame. This has got to be one of the best- cleverest- hilarious-est movies ever filmed!

And how can this song not make you feel better on a sad, down, ugly day?

It's not possible to be unhappy if Danny Kaye is anywhere near your TV screen. I love him. And I'm ashamed of myself for not thinking of him sooner! Doh!

Okay, so I don't think I have commented on any of your celebrities posts yet but I HAD to say that I completely agree with this pick. I LOVE Danny Kaye. I wanted to marry him when I was little. Court Jester is one of our FAVORITE movies. I also adore him in White Christmas.
