Teacher's Pet

Hmmmmm.....for some reason, I, too, am unable to vote; but I would give this film an "excellent." This is DD at her best. The humor is sophisticated--the mambo scene and the spoof DD did of TGWIRR were great--I replay those two scenes the most. I agree with Joe that those scenes were a preview of t...

Shelley Winters

I just noticed in today's paper that the actor, Anthony Franciosa, died Thursday at UCLA Medical Center from a massive stroke. He was 77.

The eerie thing is that he was once married to Shelley Winters. My local paper showed a picture of them from 1960. The timing is kind of surreal.

Glass Bottom Boat

Thanks for the pic of Rod! I see him periodically on shows like MURDER, SHE WROTE; but I wasn't sure if he was still working. And, of course, I remember him in THE BIRDS. I absolutely LOVE this movie--it's on my list of favorites. I was always into the "spy" genre when it was popular (Any other MAN...

I can never understand how people can do anything to deliberately harm another living creature. :-(

I am hoping "Toga" will be reunited with his mother.

Bryan--

Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures of Sheba and Korky....precious.

I think every pet touches one's life in a very special way. I know mine all hold a special place in my heart; and they will always be with me.

7 Cats

I guess it depends on who you talk to, Bryan. I've spoken with people at cat shows who've said, "Oh, ONLY seven? I have 15." <LOL> For some reason, 7 is my personal limit right now. I want to be able to provide them with the proper care. Over the years, I have had 3 of mine euthanized because of in...

Bryan,

What a cute pic of the cat behind the curtain! I am an animal lover and currently share my home with 7 cats.

I recently received an autograph from Doris addressed to "Wendy and Her Seven Angels"........ I framed and hung that right up on my wall.

The Man Who Knew Too Much

Alfred Hitchcock himself said, in retrospect, that the 1934 version was that of an amateur; and the 1956 version was that of a professional. Hitchcock's daughter, Pat, says MAN WHO is one of her favorite Hitchcock movies in her commentary found on the DVD. I, too, have noticed that this movie seems...

Bluebird, So far I have watched the first DVD and half of the second one and have not experienced any problems. Do you have another DVD player you can test it on? I notice that some DVDs that don't play as well on my one DVD player will play fine on the other one. One is a Region Free player; the o...

DD Show--Season 2

It certainly is very difficult to be patient while you're waiting for anything DD.

Hang on, everyone. It's worth the wait!

So far, I've watched the first 4 episodes. I'm trying to spread them out when I really want to watch them all at once. :)

Doris Day Show--Season Two

I just received the DVD's yesterday; last night I watched all the extras and the first two episodes. I remember that first episode as if it was yesterday--when Doris is looking for a job in San Francisco. I LOVE the bloopers. I replayed those several times. Doris says "Damn" a lot when she goofs up...

Here's an article I came across in my local paper about "real" vs. "Hollywood" celebrity names. The following are the real names of celebrities as well as their "stage" names created by Henry Willson, a Hollywood agent and idolmaker, who figures in two recently published books: Robert Hofler's THE ...

A couple of women who called in on LARRY KING commented that Tab must have "had a drink from the fountain of youth" because he still looked handsome. I think he STILL looks great--I believe he's 74 now. Re his name--he said someone in Hollywood told him they had to "tab" him with a different name. ...

Standards

Howard,

I know these songs don't really belong to Doris; but I agree with Bryan. I think many people have come to consider them Doris's.

And I can't help contrasting the newer versions with the one's Doris sang.

Other Musical Artists Singing Doris's Songs

Recently, I have bought 2 CD's by artists reprising some of the pop classics; and, ironically, on BOTH these CD's, I have come across songs that Doris sang. 1) The first one is the Queen Latifah CD where she sings standards. She does a GREAT Close Your Eyes . I rarely like "cover" records, but I wa...
