The best parts of the movie Mitty are the ones that hew closer to Thurber, because they put the cartoonish Kaye in a world every bit as nutty.
Great Danny Kaye fantasy-comedy, making far turns from Thurber story basis.
The original "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is not the best executed story of all time, getting a little jumbled in all it's cleverness, but it sure holds your attention and makes you laugh a lot. The actors all bring their A-Game to this picture, and through the normal sequences, to the daydream sequences, it's almost flawless transitioning for it's time. Being made in 1947, this film sure must have been a wonder to it's original audience. There is some very unique filming techniques and the colour tones of everything was decided perfectly. The script for this film is very whimsical and enjoyable to say the very least. When Walter Mitty enters his dream worlds, his character always goes off the rails into a performance that I will remember forever, purely off of it's fun vibe. This is not a perfect film in any way, due to the fact that it can become a little unfocussed as to what it is trying to convey to it's audience, but nevertheless, it's a great film!
Whimsical, telling fable about ordinary life and memorable star vehicle for Danny Kaye, playing the dual role of milquetoast in real life and he-man in his dreams.
tah-pocket, tah-pocket, tah-pocket, tah-pocket, the sound the brain makes, a quiet whisper really, the subtle shifting of realities, from this dull and tiresome existence, this veil of tears to...tah-pocket, tah-pocket, tah-pocket, tah-pocket...
to the world where you've an answer for everything, yes, a solution to every problem, yes, a hand for every one in need, yes, a joyous spirit, yes, generous, caring, courageous, yes, yes, yes...tah-pocket, tah-pocket, tah-pocket, tah-pocket. danny kaye is a dull man with a dream...and virginia mayo's always in them. a forgotten gem.
My favorite Danny Kaye film.
