“The Inspector General” (Warner Bros., 1949). A vehicle for the great physical comedian Danny Kaye. Kaye plays Georgi, an illiterate who gets mistaken for a government inspector in a corrupt Eastern European village. Kaye is a force of nature, able to sing and contort his way through any character and situation. Silly fun. Based on the play “Revizor” by Nikolai Gogol. Written by Philip Rapp and Harry Kurnitz. Directed by Henry Koster. “Be arrogant, be elegant, be smart!”
