Movie-Ed Guide to
The Court Jester
About the Movie
The Court Jester is a wonderfully entertaining romp through the Middle Ages. Perhaps Danny Kaye's most memorable vehicle, this movie features his classic tongue-twisting "poison pellet" patter. As the titular jester, Kaye tries to assist the rightful King of England in regaining his throne. Angela Lansbury, Basil Rathbone, and Glynis Johns co-star in this comedy that strikes just the right note of slapstick silliness.
