4 Stars
The Court Jester Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:On TV Saw at/with: At the Brusics
Rating: NR Year: 1956 Category: Comedy Action
Director: Melvin Frank Time: 101 min. Writer: Norman Panama

Mine: Charming, funny and delightful. Danny is in top form. Very clever
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: One of the best comedies ever made has Danny as phony jester who finds himself involved in romance, court intrigue, and a deadly joust. Delightfully complicated comic situations, superbly performed. And remember: the pellet with the poison's in the vessel with the pestle. VistaVision.
