Only the Black Fox can restore the true king to the throne–and all he needs is the king’s key to a secret tunnel. And while he’s trying to steal it, someone has to change the king’s diapers. The task falls to Hawkins, the gentlest member of the Fox’s band. The Fox’s lieutenant, Maid Jean, guards Hawkins and the babe while they travel, but when they meet the King’s new jester on the road, they decide to initiate a daring plan for Hawkins to replace him, become an intimate at the court, and steal the key. So, humble Hawkins becomes Giacomo: the king of jesters and jester to the king. But things begin to get zany when the King’s daughter falls for Giacomo, the King falls for Jean, people randomly sing what are supposed to be recognition codes, and a witch with very effective spells (and poison pellets) begins to interfere.
Plot: A hapless carnival performer masquerades as the court jester as part of a plot against a usurper who has overthrown the rightful king of England.

Really entertaining and all around fun musical parody featuring a charismatic performance from David Kaye and also has Basil Rathbone serviceable as the villain. Also nice having Glynis Johns and Angela Lansbury in there, Johns particularly stunning. **3.75/5**
Discretion is for fools and simpletons.
From the opening credits as Danny Kaye sings dressed as a harlequin jester you get the impression that this film will be a joyous romp, and so it is. Perhaps the most talked about film in Kaye’s CV (even though it lost close to two million dollars on release), The Court Jester is a perfect vehicle for his blend of madcap showboating and serene warbling. Here he gets to play both the coward and the hero in a delightful dual role that is as energetic as it is mirthful – and thankfully the supporting cast (Cecil Parker, Angela Lansbury and Basil Rathbone in particular) are clued into the nature of the film to bring about top entertaining results. Though to be fair, it would be ignorant of me to not point out that Glynis Johns’ Maid Jean is under formed.
A number of hilarious sequences stand out in the film, from Hubert Hawkins transformation back and forth as Giacomo, to a brilliantly funny knighting ceremony, the film ticks all the boxes for fun family entertainment. Whilst do I need to mention “the vessel with the pestle, the flagon with the dragon, and the chalice with the palace” section of film that rightly stands the time for classic status. Great songs, great routines, Kaye on form, with Rathbone as the hissable villain, what more do you need? The Court Jester, a perfect movie for all the family. 8/10
I love this movie!
I have seen this movie literally hundreds of times but everytime it is on TV, I sit and watch it again. This is a sweet, funny, light-hearted movie that the entire family can watch–no gratuitous sex, no four-letter words–just fun. They don’t make them like this anymore. I still laugh about the “pistol with the poison is in the flagon with the dragon, the chalice from the palace has the brew that is true”. Danny Kaye is a genius, no one can utter tongue twisters like he can. This movie also features a very young and beautiful Angela Lansbury (for you “Murder, She Wrote” fans). Of course there is Basil Rathbone, who is of course, suave and dashing. What more could you ask of a movie? Watch this movie–you’ll be glad you did.
This is one of, if not the, all time best comedy films ever made!
This is, in my opinion, the best comedy film ever made. Yes that is saying a lot, but this film has everything. A GREAT cast! Danny Kaye is at his best in this movie and his physical comedy is unmatched in American cinema. You have a young Angela Landbury in a truly great role and she plays it perfectly. Glynis Johns, who later played Mrs. Banks in “Mary Poppins”, is delightful. Basil Rathbone is wonderful in the role of the “heavy” and plays the role as a perfect counter to the comedic talents of Kaye. Alan Napier – who later played Alfred, the butler in the 1960’s television show “Batman” is another example of the amazing talent that was assembled for this picture. High comedy for the entire family and not one thing that I was uncomfortable with my 6 year old daughter seeing or hearing. An example of the kind of family friendly comedic adventure that would probably never get made in today’s Hollywood.
