DANNY KAYE look alike

Today is Danny Kaye's birthday. Hard to imagine, but there are people who don't know who he is, or I should say was. I've written in the past about how much I adored Danny Kaye as a child, going to see him in both D.C. and Hawaii, and having him stuck in traffic in Waikiki on a rainy night in the car next to ours.

The fellow in this photo reminds me of Danny. The photo is, as it looks to be, a very small postage stamp. It is perforated with glue on the back. I've never seen anything like it before and have no idea when it might have been produced.

I decided to post it today in honor of Danny. He brought my best friend and me immense joy.


  1. That is pretty cool. I've seen privately perfed stamps (I use a sewing machine and a heavy needle), but this does appear to be perfed on a machine.

    1. I've looked around online to see if I could find anything about these sort of stamps, but nada. Looking at it I'd say it's from the '40s or '50s. It's very small. I'm always worried I'm going to drop it and later find it stuck to the bottom of my foot.

  2. His birthday! So that explains the TCM marathon. I didn't get a chance to tune in, but I have a friend who also loves Danny, and she's been watching avidly.
