kaye brings the fun too bad he never got paired with doris day the queen of fun-just too too much fun i guess.

A very funny film and one of my all time favorite movies. Danny Kaye is superb as the teacher who wants to really be an archeaologist. He gets his wish and must try to search for the Pan statue that he alone knows the location of while a circus is going on above the tunnel he is searching in. It has great songs and the choreography, notably the bike riding during the Tickety Boo song and the Salud song dancing. Lots of fun and a great follow up to Kaye's The Court Jester. A cheerful, fun, Tickety Boo-like movie!
