This movie is a childhood favourite. Danny Kay is at his best in this one. The songs are sweet and one of my favourite scenes is the one in the Irish pub, the other is the final scene when by accident he finds himself on the stage in the title role of a prince in a ballet! Brilliant comedy, it aged very well in my opinion. If you do not know this movie and want a nice retro feel, have a good laugh and look back at a time when love was still alive and innocent then watch this movie.

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.

I loved it, it is always such treat to watch Danny Kaye, I have always been a fan of his since I was 12 years of age! He had an amazing talent with mimicry, putting on different accents his irish one in this film was hilarious, and very impressive. So I really enjoyed this movie especially the car sequence, which was hysterical to watch!! I highly recommend it. Thank you.

It takes a while before this film gets into gear but once it does it flies.
Then its gut laughingly funny.

A delight to see this film again. The ballet sequence was one I've always remembered and it hasn't lost anything of its humour since I first saw it over 50 years ago. Perhaps nostalgia is what it used to be.
