The Court Jester (Norman Panama, Melvin Frank, 1954): USA

Reviewed by Iku Sato. Viewed at AFI Film fest 2013.

This Court Jester was made by Norman Panama and Melvin Frank. A child has blood of the throne but Black fox which is a group of a loyal retainer to watch to get a power. Hubert Hawkins (Danny Kaye) is a subordinate and he is a circus performer. Hubert guard the child and he fight for him and the Royal Family. This movie is that love story, action, comedy, and fantasy. Danny Kaye is so good actor and this movie was made in 1955 but our movie theater made a laugh. In the last, they finished with musical and it’s so beautiful end. If I mark this film, The Court Jester is 90 / 100 points.

Norman Panama, Melvin Frank, and Danny Kaye, this two directors and an actor made some movies and they are funny story of the middle ages and England. Glynis Johns, Angela Lansbury, and Basil Rathbone and so many famous actor appeared this film.
