On the Double
Danny Kaye (Knock on Wood) headlines this wacky WWII comedy… he plays a timid American soldier who bears a striking resemblance to a famous British Colonel. The Military Intelligence decides to use the poor chap as a pawn and recruit the naive soldier to impersonate the legendary Colonel, who’s highly targeted by the Nazi assassins. Co-starring Dana Wynter as the Colonel’s suspicious wife, Diana Dors as the Colonel’s personal driver and mistress and Wilfrid Hyde White as the Colonel overseeing the mission. This zany action-comedy with classic Danny Kaye routines was directed by Melville Shavelson (The Five Pennies).
