NOTES

"I can't say what Danny Kaye is like in private life. There are too many of them." --Sylvia Fine (quoted in "Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion", 9th edition, 1998)

"I'm Anatole of Paris,

I shiek with chic;

My 'at of ze week

Caused six divorces, three runaway 'orses...

I'm Anatole of Paris, ze 'ats I sell

Make people yell

'Is zat a 'at or a two-room flat?"

--Sylvia Fine's lyric from "Anatole of Paris"
