The weekend is almost here and that means another great classic movie being shown for free at the International Museum of Art. This week, you'll get the chance to see one of the most hilarious actors on the big screen during the 40s and 50s. Danny Kaye started in show business in 1939 and was well-known for his comedic skills, but he also did some dramatic acting in his career. You might remember him for his role in White Christmas opposite Bing Crosby. It's not one of my favorite movies, but it is a good holiday movie.

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is my favorite Danny Kaye movie. He is silly and fun and makes you feel his pain at being a bit of a doof whose life is just a little boring. He lives with his mother who walks all over him, he has a fiancee who does the same thing, and he finds himself daydreaming in order to become the kind of man he wishes he could be in real life. His life changes on the train one day when he helps a beautiful woman escape danger and then finds himself thrown into the funniest dangerous ring of spies who are looking for a hidden treasure.

This movie is a ton of fun for the whole family and you will not be able to take your eyes off the gorgeous late 40s fashions or the women who wear them. It really is a lot of fun, and it's free. You can also get really well-priced concessions before the movie. Take the whole family - it'll probably cost you less than $20 for a really great Saturday afternoon.
