Hans Christian Andersen (Digibook) (1952)
Danny Kaye stars as the Danish cobbler-turned-storyteller extraordinaire in a fanciful family favorite, loosely based on Andersen's life. Lavish sets and ballet sequences and a Frank Loesser score that includes "Inchworm," "Thumbelina," and "The Ugly Duckling" add to this timeless fantasy. Co-stars Farley Granger, Zizi Jeanmaire, Joey Walsh; directed by Charles Vidor. 112 min. Standard; Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1.
