He danced beautifully with Vera-Ellen, a woman often considered the best technical dancer in the movies. His movies gathered legions of fans. His TV show won awards. When it came to show business, it seemed there was nothing Danny Kaye could not do!

But the many faces of Danny Kaye are not limited to his unparalleled career in entertainment. Danny Kaye was also a gourmet chef, a licensed pilot, baseball team owner, a devoted gardener and, most importantly, the first celebrity to become an international spokesman for a charity.

Danny Kaye’s decades-long and deeply passionate involvement with UNICEF set the model followed by countless celebrities who would follow. Although today it is not uncommon to see celebrities who are attached to a cause, it was Danny Kaye who set the example! not Kaye traveled the world, over and over, again and again, in order to draw attention to the plight of children living in harsh circumstances. When UNICEF was awarded the Nobel peace prize, the organization asked Danny Kaye to accept the award.

It’s hard to name another entertainer who could do all the things Danny Kaye could do – nor name an entertainerDanny Kaye and Gene Tiereney from a scene from the movie On The Riviera more committed to charity. The many faces of Danny Kaye Also involve a darker side. He was a complex man, not always easy to love nor understand. In this fast-paced multimedia presentation, filled with fabulous film clips, you will get to know the many faces of Danny Kaye.
