Danny Kaye's antic, fast-talking brand of comedy is perfect for this knockabout musical romp. A merry band of rebels plan to oust evil King Roderick and return the rightful heir to the throne. Kaye tries to help, and is sent to the wicked king's court disguised as a jester. But what he doesn't know is that the identity he's assumed is actually that of an assassin who was in disguise himself. Confused? You will be, but it's all part of the fun in this gleeful send-up of the swashbuckler genre.
