Filmed in glorious 1940s Technicolor, 'The Kid From Brooklyn' was the second film in which Danny Kaye was paired with two of the loveliest dames ever to grace the silver screen, Virginia Mayo and Vera-Ellen.

Released in 1946, directed by Norman Z. McLeod and produced by Samuel Goldwyn, it seemed that everyone in Hollywood at the time wanted to hitch their sails to Kaye's fast-rising comic star. He'd headed right for California after conquering Broadway in the 1941 musical 'Lady in the Dark,' and 'Kid' was his third Goldwyn-produced venture in a row. A knockabout and rollicking flick, it's your free movie of the day.
