Freedland's hyperbolic writing style gets in the way of his subject; he tries too hard to be clever and only succeeds in making his prose repetitive and boring. Whatever his problems, Kaye deserves better than this. Marcia L. Perry, Berkshire Athenaeum, Pittsfield, Mass.

Danny Kaye was an American stage and screen comedian. He was the first ambassador-at-large of UNICEF in 1954 and received the French Legion of Honour in 1986 for his years of work with the organization. January 18, 1911 (age 76). Brooklyn, New York, United States. Kaye gained his first professional experience as an entertainer in the borscht belt resorts of the Catskill Mountains. While still in his early twenties, he embarked on a tour that took him to the Far East, but he was still an unknown when he made his first short film appearance in 1937. The Straw Hat Revue on Broadway (1939) brought him some attention and he shot to overnight stardom in Lady in the Dark (1941).

The secret life of Danny Kaye Hardcover – 1985. I actually found this book at my local library, and it's the first Kaye biography I've read. Basically I can say it was very informative; however, I was a little put off by the convoluted writing style of the author. by. Michael Freedland (Author). I sometimes I found myself reading what should have been a simple declarative sentence over and over again trying to figure out what the author was trying to say. There was enough color in the life and projects of Danny Kaye that the over-the-top linguistic flourish was unnecessary. But this is worth a read for any dedicated Kaye fan.

But this is worth a read for any dedicated Kaye fan. It seems fairly well researched, and whereas every author colors his/her work with some personal bias, I don't think this work is overly subjective.
