Summary: Interesting and cute movie :) Walter Mitty never makes any waves, at work or in life, but (day)dreams about it, especially during the day while people are watching! Not a great movie, but it has some really beautiful scenes in Irland, Afghanistan... Worth the watch!
Summary: This Danny Kaye movie is a classic. Many Kaye movies seem to be a comedic story wrapped around a musical, but Walter Mitty is pure comedy. Great plot twist with Boris Karloff playing a devious "Baddy" looking to steal military secrets left in a briefcase.
Pros: Entertaining, Great Cinematography, Great story, Great writing, Plot Twists
Summary: In New York, the clumsy Walter Mitty (Danny Kaye) is the publisher of pulp fiction at the Pierce Publishing house owned by Bruce Pierce (Thurston Hall). He lives with his overprotective and abusive mother (Fay Bainter) and neither his fiancée Gertrude Griswold (Ann Rutherford) and her mother...
Summary: A nice concept for a movie, but it falls short in several areas. The best part of the movie is the cinematography, with sweeping vistas on locations across the world. The plot is basically a man breaking out of his own self imposed limits to aspire to adventurous things.
Excerpt: "To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life." This reviewer is a sucker for life related quotes or films, this is definitely one of them.
Excerpt: This movie by ben stiller is. a nice idea of a guy who day dreams from the reality of his boring life then goes on a real adventure but nothing is realistic even when he is doing things for real its just totally stupid , he manages to leave work do things that would take weeks then return.
