3.0 out of 5 stars A Danny Kaye classic, 27 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knock on Wood (Danny Kaye) Region 2 (DVD)
Knock On Wood from 1954 was one of Danny Kaye's best yet least-known films. Danny bumbles his way through European intrigue involving the theft of plans for a secret weapon. To escape his pursuers, he pretends to be a high-class English car saleman, a drunken Irish tenor in a pub and finally, a hilarious and catastrophic dancer in a Russian ballet. His fast-talking and frantic actions are as good as anything he did in "The Court Jester" or "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty"

This film has been sitting on the shelf of some film vault for decades and most people have never heard of it. Regrettably, this DVD release which appears to have been made in Italy is not exactly of digital quality. Quite the opposite.
It seems to have been made from a 16mm print with numerous colour shifts. Hopefully, someday we will get a really sharp copy of this delightfully funny film released on DVD.
