You’ll double over with laughter at Danny Kaye’s Golden Globe-winning dual performances in this classic musical farce that was nominated for two Oscars Awards. Faced with a scheduling conflict, a womanizing French financier-aviator (Kaye) hires a nightclub performer (also Kaye) to temporarily impersonate him. But things go hilariously awry as one man tries to romance two beautiful women (Tierney and Calvet) – who both think he’s their lover. On The Riviera was released in May of 1951.

  • The Riviera Story: A Remarkable Impersonation
