Danny Kaye shines as Georgi in this 1949 satirical musical comedy about a lovable buffoon who wanders into a town where he is mistaken for the Inspector General by its corrupt mayor. Fearing exposure, the mayor and his equally crooked councilors make attempts to assassinate him, but the kindly townspeople are on Georgis side. Loosely based on the play by Nikolai Gogol, this Henry Koster gem ranks among Danny Kayes most celebrated movies. Newly Remastered!
This release is a must own for anyone who either wants to learn more about Kayes work, or just wants to be introduced to a canon that frankly, is under-looked. A perfect launching point for those looking to be introduced to Kayes filmography, the release is dense, entertaining, and visually striking. Simply put, this is a must own for fans or novices alike. --Criterion Cast, September 2011
