Danny Kaye and his wife Sylvia Fine entertained the American public for decades and their life in musical entertainment is a testimony to their love of performance. This digital collection from the Library of Congress brings together items that include printed music, photographs, videos, audio recordings, and manuscripts. There's a great interactive timeline here that provides visitors with information about key events in their lives which include on-stage performances and live nightclub appearances. The Photographs area contains over 830 photos of Kaye's performances around the world entertaining the troops and much more while the Videos & Film area contains wonderful clips from films like The Inspector General. The site is rounded out by a collection of Manuscripts which includes Fine's music and homework from Brooklyn College, her song transcripts, and more.
