Movie Info

In this farcical Technicolor musical, snake oil salesman Georgi (Danny Kaye) is too honest for his own good. After his partner (Walter Slezak) fires him, the simple-minded Georgi wanders into a corrupt town where he is mistaken for a diplomat. As Georgi unknowingly enjoys his false identity, the townspeople make several botched attempts to assassinate him, believing he is a powerful politician. Matters get even more tangled, and amusing, when the real inspector general shows up.

Audience Reviews for The Inspector General

  • Jun 14, 2018
    In a case of mistaken identity, a no-account gypsy is thought to be a high ranking official by crooked local government types. Hilarity would ensue but this film totally banks on the appeal of Danny Kaye's silly antics. Like some Jim Carrey offerings it simply gets to be too much and further not cute but rather annoying. I began to root for the villains to win. Only watch if you are entertaining adolescents.

    I wasn't really paying attention, but what I saw wasn't great.

    This movie is too silly, so much that it misses the mark with its comedy. Kaye is just annoying.
