Inspector General, The (1949)

An American musical comedy based on the satirical play by Nikolai Gogol that deals with local corruption and a case of mistaken identity in … all early 19th century Russia. Its ambiguous sets and costumes places the study somewhere in Eastern Europe during Napoleonic rule. Perhaps because the film was produced during the onset of the Cold War, the vagueness of the setting might indicate that the producers did not want to make a comedy about Russia. This vehicle for Danny Kaye reduced the biting satire and increased the music for American audiences.
