David Daniel Kaminski Wiki Biography

Daniel David Kaminsky was born on 18th January 1911, in Brooklyn, New York City USA, and as Danny Kaye, was an actor, comedian and singer, for many years one of the most popular comic actors in the US. He played major roles in comedies like “The Kid from Brooklyn” (1946) and “The Court Jester” (1956), and was active in the entertainment industry from 1933 to 1986; he passed away in 1987.

How much is the net worth of Danny Kaye? It has been reported by authoritative sources that the overall size of his wealth is as much as $10 million, as of the data presented in the middle of 2017.

Danny Kaye Net Worth $10 Million

To begin with, as the son of Jewish immigrants from Yekaterinoslav in the Russian Empire, he lived his childhood largely in modest circumstances. He left school at the age of 13 and learned the basics of show business in the famous resort of Borscht Belt in the Catskills. In 1933, he joined the dance couple Dave Harvey and Kathleen Young, but in their premiere, he lost his balance and the audience burst into laughter. Immediately, Kaye built this misfortune into his role, and which in the longer term of his career, saw him become truly multi-talented.

With “The Straw Hat Revue”, the red haired Kaye made his Broadway debut in 1939. The subsequent musical “Lady in the Dark” (1941) helped him to break through with the audience and agents – in 39 seconds he chattered more than fifty syllable Russian and Polish composer names in a song called “Tchaikovsky”; a similar quick talk performance was recorded on the soundtrack of “The Court Jester” (1956). During the 1950s and 1960s, Kaye continued his work in films, and in 1963 he also got his own TV show “The Danny Kaye Show”, which became a giant success and brought him an Emmy in the first year. On television, he also took on the role of Captain Hook in “Peter Pan” (1976) and Master Geppetto in “Pinocchio” (1976). On the big screen, Danny Kaye had outstanding success in “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” (1947) starring next to Virginia Mayo, who played his partner in many other films. In 1954, the actor experienced success in the film “White Christmas” starring beside Bing Crosby. As mentioned above, in 1956 Kaye starred in the musical comedy “The Court Jester”, for which he was nominated for the Golden Globe Award as the Best Motion Picture Actor – Comedy/Musical. However, the Golden Globe Award in the same category the actor won a few years later, for the role in “Me and the Colonel” (1958). In 1981, he performed with the New York Philharmonic in “An Evening with Danny Kaye” with many well known classical pieces. The show took place at the Lincoln Centre. He made his last appearance in 1986 in “The Bill Cosby Show”.

Concerning the social engagement, Kaye began his long-standing ambassadorship for UNICEF in 1959, and the same year, he received an honorary Oscar for his humanitarian commitment. He continued to work for UNICEF well into his old age. In 1982, at the 54th Academy Awards Awards, he received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award from the hands of Academy Award President Gregory Peck. He managed to collect $10 million for UNICEF during his concerts. When UNICEF was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965, Danny Kaye was chosen to receive it for the organization.

Finally, in the personal life of Kaye, he married Sylvia Fine in 1940; they had a daughter born in 1946. The two lived happily until his death from heart failure and internal bleeding due to hepatitis C triggered by an infected blood transfusion during a bypass operation, on 3rd March 1987 in Los Angeles, California. He is buried at the Kensico Cemetery in Valhalla, Westchester County, New York State.

2If you're not cooking with joy, happiness and love, you're not cooking well.
3You bet I arrived overnight. Over a few hundred nights in the Catskills, in vaudeville, in clubs and on Broadway. [on being an overnight film success in the 1940s]
4Life is a great big canvas; throw all the paint you can at it.
1Goldwyn's wife Francis Howard would often travel to New York city scouting Broadway productions, looking for talent in both the production's acting areas and the creative teams involved in a Broadway production'a staging. Francis' trip (1941) to see the Kurt Weill-Ira Gershwin-Moss Hart musical "Lady in The Dark" -- she discovered Danny Kaye. Returning to Hollywood, Francis' ability to mint new stars from seemingly nowhere, Francis insisting her Husband, Samuel Goldwyn, put Danny Kaye under contract. After Danny Kaye arrived in Hollywood, several screen tests were made, studied, to determine the best possible path for Danny Kaye's future in Goldwyn's film business. The major problem with Kaye's physical look, besides his nose, was his natural dark-brown hair. Francis, upon seeing Kaye's screen tests, dictated to her husband -- "they had to change his hair color!" Francis was the one who said, "turn Danny into a red headed strawberry blond!" Goldwyn's studio press agent always insisted Danny Kaye's strawberry-blond hair was his natural hair color for publicity reckoning.
2Danny Kaye held a Commercial Pilot's Certificate with the following ratings: Airplane Single and Multiengine Land & Instrument Airplane. In addition, he held type ratings to act as Pilot-in-Command of two small business class jets: The LR-Jet (Learjet 20 & 30 series)and the IA-Jet.
3Kaye's daughter Dena has revealed that his birth certificate indicates that he was born in 1911, not 1913 as Kaye had publicly claimed, and that no one in the family knows why he made this alteration to his age.
4His trademark red hair was his natural color, but he was persuaded to dye it blond because it looked better that way in Technicolor. Studio mogul Samuel Goldwyn Jr. also had asked Danny to get his nose fixed so it would look less Jewish, but he refused.
