Editorial Reviews

After conquering the Borscht Belt and Broadway, David Daniel Kaminksi (Danny Kaye) got the nod from maverick impresario Samuel Goldwyn and under his tutelage soon mastered the movies as well. Kaye makes his feature film debut alongside Dinah Shore in Up in Arms (1944) as a hypochondriac war hero. Virginia Mayo gets paired with Kaye for the first time in Wonder Man (1945), which features one of his signature cinema schticks – multiple roles in the same film. Kaye plays twins with a twist: one of them is a ghost! The Kid from Brooklyn (1946) sees Kaye playing a milquetoast milkman who masters the squared circle and romances a nightclub nightingale (Virginia Mayo). A Song is Born (1948) sees Howard Hawks re-envisioning his classic Ball of Fire as a superstar jazz musical, with Kaye in the Gary Cooper role and Mayo in the Barbara Stanwyck role as the moll who sweeps several professors off their feet.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst transfers from Warner Archive. April 26, 2014
Verified Purchase
I had the misfortune of watching UP IN ARMS, which isn't one of Danny's best even though it's his first feature.
After viewing many of WB Archives great MGM & WB classic musical collections, this transfer has to be one of the worst.
Over saturated colour, colour bleeding, very hazy resolution, when it is sharp there is a very prominent herring bone pattern that overlays the image. There is hardly a sign of film grain. Where did Warners get this this transfer from?? Fox Archives.
Definitely not recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Deal for Four Great Danny Kaye Movies March 31, 2014
Verified Purchase
This is a great set of movies for the price. I grew up watching Danny Kaye on Saturday afternoons in So. California on Channel 5, KTLA (I think) and I wanted to marry a guy just like him. Oh well, that didn't happen but when I want to watch one of the most talented people that ever graced the Earth, I watch Danny.

The movies worked fine in my DVD player, but that is because I only have a player. The package arrived on time, shrink wrapped and the movies in excellent condition. Price is fantastic, especially when I was trying to find "A Song is Born," and the prices on the Amazon marketplace were double the price than what I paid for these four movies combined.

Very pleased with the entire purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! March 19, 2014
Verified Purchase
I'm a huge Danny Kaye fan and have been waiting for years for "Up In Arms" to come out on DVD. (I would have been happy to see it on VHS if had been available during that era.)

All four movies are good "clean" fun. "Up In Arms", a bit of an Army spoof, was Mr. Kaye's first movie and it is a delight to see Dinah Shore performing as well. "A Song is Born", while entertaining, doesn't have any of the performances featuring Mr. Kaye's unique style and panache. It is great fun to see many of the big band heroes from the 1940s like Benny Goodman, Luis Armstrong and others while Professor Frisbee (Kaye) and the professors are writing a history of music. "Wonder Man" is a favorite. Seeing Mr. Kaye playing twin brothers with quite opposite personalities is entertaining. “The Kid From Brooklyn” is a fun boxing show with night club performances thrown in for good measure. Vera Ellen is spectacular as always.

One thing to note about all of these movies is that they are from the 1940s and this is reflected in the films. However, even if unversed on the era, you can enjoy all of these movies.

I already had three of the films included, but had been waiting for "Up in Arms" for years. The only way to get that one movie was to buy the collection.
