Movie Info

While performing in the French Riviera, entertainer Jack Martin (Danny Kaye) finds he can do an uncanny impersonation of wealthy businessman Henri Duran (also Kaye), so much so that no one can tell the difference between the two. When a pressing business engagement requires Duran's presence, he hires Martin to take his place at a party Duran is supposed to be hosting. It turns out the plan works -- too well. Soon, Martin finds himself beset by Duran's wife, as well as his many mistresses.

Critic Reviews for On the Riviera

  • There are stronger Danny Kaye films out there, but 'On the Riviera' is perhaps the best showcase for all of the performer's talents . . . and it's entertaining enough.

  • Minor Danny Kaye romp, with some pleasant surprises.

Audience Reviews for On the Riviera

  • Nov 21, 2015
    Danny Kaye does impressions of Maurice Chevalier and Carmen Miranda as sort of a tribute respectively to the first incarnations of this film, as well as a posh Brit guy and a posh French guy and there are some location shots of the French Riviera with sunbathing babes circa 1950. There's a couple of production numbers that'll do in a pinch, but let's not get excited. The whole effort has the feel of a day job with all concerned. The one bright spot is the puppet number wherein Sylvia Fine, Kaye's wife and songwriter, makes some under-the-table and pointed comments about her marriage partner through the conceit of the song number. Yikes. The rest is standard issue Hollywood glam, with the prerequisite "as filling as white bread" subtext.
