As a biography of the author of The Ugly Duckling this glittering Technicolor gem of a musical wouldn’t score high marks for accuracy, but as a piece of pure entertainment, it’s hard to beat this lavishly appointed passion project of producer Samuel Goldwyn. Irrepressible carrot-topped comic Danny Kaye plays Andersen, smitten on his arrival in Copenhagen with ballerina Zizi Jeanmaire, at the center of an epic ballet set piece that’s only one of this magical movie’s many eye-popping extravagances.
