The Secret Life of Danny Kaye





 1956 | UNICEF

The Secret Life Of Danny Kaye was produced in cooperation with the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund in behalf of the underprivileged children of the world. This unique global television program is a saga of the joyous genius of an “ambassador extraordinary” (if Mr. Kaye will permit us to describe him as such), a saga in breaking the barriers of language and customs among the world’s children to promote the work of this United Nations agency in their behalf. With a nod to CBS and to all those who had a part in this far-reaching project, the George Foster Peabody Television Award for the promotion of international understanding during 1956 has been voted The Secret Life Of Danny Kaye.
