An eye-catching colorful musical comedy.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The premise is a thin thread on which the Goldwyn creative team hang big numbers, often barely related to the plot.

Audience Reviews for Wonder Man

½

In this quintessential Danny Kaye vehicle, which won the special effects Oscar, the star plays the first of his several screen twins, a shy intellectual and a club entertainer.

Oh what a comical wit Danny Kaye had!
Highly entertaining for all classic lovers! And if you are a fan of slapstick comedy and looney tune characteristic people, this is a movie you have got to see!

I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! I Loved it as a kid and I never get tired of it. Danny Kaye is hilarious and great in it! The songs and performances are top-notch... It's kind of a fantasy about twin brothers that are total opposites. The nightclub singer brother gets killed and then as a ghost begins to contact his bookworm brother--it makes for a lot of zany fun! "Is this the bus to potato salad?" :D On "My Favorite Movies" & "My 5 Star Funnies" lists. VHS.
