Remembering Hollywood’s Golden Boy, Danny Kaye

In the Golden Age of Hollywood, he was everywhere - on stage, on the radio, in movies and on TV . . . and all around the world as a Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF. On the 100th anniversary of his birth, Danny Kaye’s daughter, Dena Kaye speaks to Eve Jackson about the legacy of the star of "White Christmas" and "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty."

Also on the show we’re in Deauville as stars gather for the film festival that honours American cinema and we head to the south of France where Europe's biggest photojournalism festival, Visa Pour L’Image, celebrates its 25th birthday.
