On the Double DVD 1961 Danny Kaye Adventure Comedy NR Color Widescreen
Stars of On the Double: Danny Kaye, Dana Wynter, Wilfrid Hyde-White
American GI Ernie Williams, admittedly weak-kneed, has an uncanny resemblance to British Colonel MacKenzie. Williams, also a master of imitation and disguise, is asked to impersonate the Colonel, ostensibly to allow the Colonel to make a secret trip East. What Williams is not told is that the Colonel has recently been a target of assassins. After the Colonel’s plane goes down, the plan changes and Williams maintains the disguise to confuse the Nazis about D-Day.
On The Double gives Danny Kaye his usual stage for patter and mimicry. The mimicry is most important because Danny Kaye is asked to impersonate a one eyed British general whom he bares a resemblance to. Danny Kaye does other imitations like Churchill and Hitler. The one he doesn’t fool; however, is the general’s wife played by Dana Wynter who has put up with his frequent infidelities.
