Synopsis

A town’s corrupt officials think a fool is actually an investigator in disguise.

Dove Review

Danny Kaye is the star of this classic comedy musical. He portrays a poor, uneducated gypsy named George who is mistaken for the inspector general in a small town that is run by some people that are stealing the town blind.

George, although he cannot read or write, does his best to play the part and discover how corrupt the town counsel is. He has a kind heart and tries to do the best for village but just how will he pull this off?

Danny has a way of making the simplest thing become funny, and his singing talent is wonderful in making this a cute, hilarious movie for the family. The Dove Family-Approved Seal for all ages is awarded to this classic movie.
