starring Danny Kaye

See the original before the remake! This 1947 version is a new addition to the library's film collection. Based on James Thurber's classic short story about a mild mannered mouse of a man who dreams of situations in which he figures as a great hero. His constant daydreaming comes to an abrupt halt when he becomes the real life target of a gang of jewel thieves. It's a fantasy tale for the entire family.
