DANNY KAYE, American actor, singer, and comedian, died (b. 1913); The Secret Life of Walter Mitty…indeed. According to biographer Donald Spoto, Kaye and Laurence Olivier had a 10-year affair in the 1950s, when Olivier was still married to Vivien Leigh. A biography of Leigh states that their affair caused her to have a breakdown. Olivier’s official biographer, Terry Coleman, denies the affair, but Olivier’s widow, Joan Plowright, confirmed the story.
