For our weekly detour into silliness, allow me to offer up a favorite scene from a favorite movie, The Court Jester (1955). It involves Danny Kaye at his vaudevillian best, especially in this scene built around one crafty tongue twister.

ALSO: Be on the lookout for a very young (and rather stunning!) Angela Lansbury as the princess (on the dais by the king, in black and green).

Enjoy!
