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.

Note to Buyers
Mayda Mart movies consist of mostly American films made before 1964. These carefully researched films have been considered to be in the public domain in the USA for many years. Why is a film in the public domain? Briefly, films fall into the public domain because they were never properly registered with the Library of Congress in the first place or were not renewed as required by the prevailing copyright laws at the time. This movie has been researched and found to be in the public domain in the U.S. because the copyright has either expired and is no longer valid or the film was not copyrighted at all. Researched first with the United States Copyright Office Public Catalog as well as other public domain resources.
