BREAKING NEWS: January 18 was noted as the 100th birthday of comedian Danny Kaye. This morning (January 20) on TCM they are honoring Kaye by showing his films all day. Their special guest is Deana Kaye, Danny’s daughter. She just announced that her father’s actual year of birth was 1911 yet he always claimed it was 1913. Even his death certificate has 1913 so they decided to honor him with his wish to celebrate it on that year. She said that she has no idea what those two years meant to him since by Hollywood standards if you’re going to fudge on your birth year, it’s usually by at least 10 years.
