THE COURT JESTER

United States | 1955 | Melvin Frank, Norman Panama

THE COURT JESTER film still

This very funny musical spoof of Medieval swashbucklers was the most lavish and expensive comedy produced up to that time. Danny Kaye plays a circus clown who joins a gang of rebels dedicated to overthrowing the evil pretender to the English throne. Basil Rathbone, Glynis Johns, Angela Lansbury, and John Carradine co-star. “Four stars (highest rating)…One of the best comedies ever made.” –Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide. 4K DCP. 101 min.

Ages 12 & under $5.
