CHANGE THE CHANNEL
Absolutely not my cup of tea. This was change the channel awful. Of course , full disclosure musicals overall just don't appeal to me. Many of them are just God Awful. This one cements its place in that category IMHO
keep eric and tj away from the christmas trees..
if we live in a world In which tj miller and eric andre might be considered to be equal talents to danny kaye..then the human race does not deserve to exist.

Years later, Kaye takes the same 'twin' theme and makes the terrific "On the Riviera". Much more polished production and better musical score. In Wonder Man, the Java Jive (or whatever) number is good, but some other parts are painfully slow or not so funny. For saucy fun, I'll take Riviera any day.
vera-ellen's film debut
Two beautiful woman make this film well worth watching (I am not a Danny Kaye fan, too over the top). Virginia Mayo and the young (18) Vera-Ellen making her very first appearance in movies. She never looked prettier and, as usual, her dancing is a joy to watch.
Best Danny Kaye Movie!
I LOVE Wonder Man! This is my very favorite next to The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. granted it's a little weird for some people, but I think it's absolute magic! My wife and I enjoy watching it when we can. I just wish it was available on dvd or blu-ray. Five stars from me!
Wonder Man with Danny Kaye
- Ana Maria Padilla
I grew up watching Danny Kaye movies....Wonder Man is one of his best. Please release this to be seen on TCM...I would like to order the movie for family members too....Thank you.
This film really highlights Danny Kaye's comedic gifts. His dual characterizations for the twin brothers, his singing and dancing, all contribute to pure fun. The climax at the opera is classic. The film also has a fine supporting cast. I hope a DVD of this film becomes available in the near future.
Wonder Man (1945)
- Jay Higgins
One of Danny Kaye's best movies and it's an excellent musical comedy. Great production values, good songs and score. Light and entertaining, great supporting cast. A delightful classic.
Danny Kaye Movies
Please TCM Let's have some Danny Kaye Movies. This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. How about a Danny Kaye Day at the Movies!
Funniest Danny Kaye Movie Ever!
This has been one of my top five favorite movies since babyhood. Even my 18-year-old son will sit and watch it from start to finish. The musical numbers are equal in quality to any big budget musical MGM ever made and Danny Kaye's timing and delivery are flawless. Lines from the film, such as "palpably inadequate", have become part of my family's vocabulary. The superb cast includes Vera Ellen, Virginia Mayo, and S.Z. Sakall, among others, all giving top notch performances as well in this cinematic gem. More than six decades after its release, Wonder Man never gets old!
Wonderful Wonder Man
- S E Krohse
When my daughters and I are able to visit together(10 hour apart), usually on holidays, we watch Wonder Man .. the laughter rolls. At the deli it is always a pound of Prospect Park and the giggles and snickers are ours. One daughter even searched and bought a vcr version- wish it were dvd. How about it TCM??
Incredible Dancing by Vera-Ellen!!
Even my 10 year old daughter LOVES this movie. Danny Kaye is a crack-up (comedy that is timeless), Virginia Mayo is beautiful & Vera-Ellen is outstanding. I would watch this whole movie just for one of her dance routines. We LOVE this movie!!
