Merry Andrew is a musical comedy film from 1958, starring the beloved actor and comedian Danny Kaye in the lead role. The movie revolves around Andrew Larabee (Danny Kaye), a music teacher in a small Midwestern college, who dreams of becoming a famous songwriter and performer. Andrew is a creative and passionate teacher, but he feels unfulfilled in his job and longs to break free from the monotony of his small-town existence. His dreams seem to come true when he is invited to work at the prestigious Circus Tsarina in Europe as a music professor. Andrew jumps at the opportunity, hoping that it will lead to his breakthrough as a performer.

However, things don't go as planned, and Andrew finds himself struggling to adapt to the rigid and conservative culture of the circus. He meets the beautiful and charming Selena (Pier Angeli), the daughter of the circus owner, who is tasked with training Andrew in the art of circus performance. Selena is initially skeptical of Andrew's talents, but she soon realizes that he has a gift for comedy and acrobatics.

As Andrew falls in love with Selena, he also faces fierce competition from the other performers, who see him as an outsider and a threat to their positions in the circus. Led by the grumpy and stubborn Maestro Esmerelda (Salvatore Baccaloni), the performers challenge Andrew to a series of tests and trials, seeking to prove that he's not worthy of performing in the circus.

Despite his setbacks, Andrew refuses to give up on his dreams, and he sets out to prove his worth to the circus and to Selena. With his wit, charm, and comedic skills, Andrew wins over the audience and the performers alike, and he becomes a beloved member of the Circus Tsarina family.
