Danny Kaye at 100 – CBS News


The centennial of the entertainer’s birth is being celebrated – not just for his classic musical-comedies and his tuneful collaborations with his wife, the composer and lyricist Sylvia Fine, but also for his timeless contributions to humanitarian missions, such as the United Nations International Children’s Fund.

The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., is hosting an exhibition titled, “Danny Kaye and Sylvia Fine: Two Kids From Brooklyn,” which charts the course of their lives and stage and screen careers, from “patter songs” to USO Shows, and to Kaye’s service as UNICEF’s first Goodwill Ambassador.
