Hans Christian Andersen

Movies, Drama
Determined that he was going to make a movie about the celebrated storyteller, producer Sam Goldwyn went through every conceivable permutation of directors (William Wyler!), stars (Gary Cooper!) and scripts (16 of 'em) before ending up with this garish epic of musical puerility. You'll remember the songs - from 'Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen' to 'The Ugly Duckling' - but does Kaye have to play it as though he has a mental age of ten? A sugary one.
