It used to be that when you had one of those moments of memory where something from your childhood bobs to the surface of the mental rummage pile you’d perhaps have to resign yourself to the fact that it would most likely only be glimpse, you’d never get to experience it again.
Of course the internet, and specifically youtube, has changed all that.
I tell you, the number of hours I’ve spent in pubs trying to recall this routine and the name of the film it was in!
(It’s Danny Kaye in The Court Jester, by the way,)

Believe it or not they ripped off (riffed on if we’re being kind) the idea of the word play from this in an episode of ‘Allo ‘Allo.
Jack! How’re you doing?
Surely *every* episode of Allo Allo? And probably Ronnie Barker’s entire career?
And now you mention it, yea.
And we always think of that kind of word-play as being “British humour”. Fancy that.
