Shouty Men in Shiny Armour - not always all that serious
Who doesn't love Danny Kaye in The Court Jester? A 1955 classic based on Sylvia Fine's The Maladjusted Jester, it took the piss out of the Robin Hood schtick decades before Mel Brooks put men in tights, and took on the romance of knighthood to boot. We won't spoil for you why Kaye's character is being rushed through this ceremony; just enjoy for now, and then hurry off and see the whole film if you haven't.
Yea, verily, yea.
