    Red Buttons and Danny Kaye Screen-Worn Costumes. A Red Buttons two-piece custom-made black wool suit with large orange windowpane patterns more than likely worn on The Red Buttons Show (1952-55). A Western Costume Co. label within features the typed name of the performer, and it was acquired from the Western Costume Star Collection. Also in this lot, a Danny Kaye quick change ensemble featuring a beige dress shirt with French cuffs, attached round brass cuff links and "DK" monogrammed on the left sleeve, a red silk ascot with tiny black dots at neck and matching tan high-waisted trousers sewn together as one unit with a large zipper up the back allowing the performer to "quick change" within seconds for comedic effect. Acquired from the Danny Kaye family and used on The Danny Kaye Show (1963-67). Authenticated by the world's foremost curators of television artifacts, The Comisar Collection of Beverly Hills.
