Description: As a special tribute to Danny Kaye, who would have turned 100 this year, this March 24th screening of "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" will be introduced by Dena Kaye, Danny's daughter. Based on a classic James Thurber short story (and currently being remade by Ben Stiller), this is one of Danny Kaye's most beloved movies. He plays a pulp-fiction writer who escapes his life by dreaming himself into situations where his heroism saves the day. But when a sultry stranger ensnares him in a web of espionage, he must become a hero for real. 1947. 110 min. Rated PG.
