While he was world famous for his comic acting ability, his last film appearance, Skokie (1981) (TV), in which he portrayed a Holocaust survivor protesting a planned march by Neo-Nazis, was one of only two dramatic film roles he played - the other was the role of the Ragpicker in the 1969 film The Madwoman of Chaillot (1969), starring Katharine Hepburn.

 

The stage musical "The Kid from Brooklyn," which chronicled Kaye`s life, implied a tempestuous affair with his radio co-star Eve Arden and, at the very least, a dalliance with Laurence Olivier.

A collection of tales which range from comic to tragic, but often have a wicked sense of humor and an unexpected twist.
