Re: Barry Comden, DD's fourth husband dead at 74

Might be a great time for Doris to write another book in her own words. What a lady this woman is - plain and simply, quite a gal. She certainly is quite a gal ! I am not so certain however that she would want to write another book at this stage in her life.......she gave up giving interviews to th...

Re: My Doris Day Autographs

A few months ago, I adopted a most beautiful kitten from the Humane Society. Of course, I took some snapshots and mailed them with a letter to Miss Day. I did not hear back from her but I did have a return address on my letter and apparently the letter did not bounce as the Post Office would have re...

Re: Jane Russell has died

I was a big Jane Russell fan. Yes, she did have a good singing voice - enjoyed hearing it in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," and "The French Line." She was sexy, alright, but she had a down-to-earth quality that was hard to resist. In fact, when I saw "Gentlemen," I was drawn more towards her than to M...

It's so cool you know so much about the classic movie stars! I'm a huge fan of Veronica Lake! Do you or anyone else know her work? Veronica Lake was the 'peek-a-boo' girl from the 1940's......very famous in her time but ultimately led a horrendous life in which poverty prevailed, her looks faded dr...

Re: Jane Russell has died

Jane Russell was a very talented lady. It's always so hard to lose someone we have watched for so many years. She will very much be missed. Of all the 'sultry ladies' of Hollywood.....I liked her the best because she was always earthy and did not take herself seriously. She was totally professional...

Re: Elizabeth Taylor has Passed Away

It was sad to hear the news as its the end of a golden era. I was never a fan of LA LIZ however. After awhile, all the media attention she was receiving became a joke and it was tough for me take her seriously. Obviously fame and fortune cannot buy everything and that was definitely true about LIZ. ...

Re: Small Talk: General Discussion 2

I don't understand why people keep wanting to make remakes. I think it would be far better if a whole new musical was created for movies. It happens at least sometimes on Broadway. I would really love to see that. A movie with new songs and new actors. It's just my opinion but I feel that people ar...

THE GLASS BOTTOM BOAT when it had first been released in 1966. I even remember where I saw it.

Windham is a small rural town in upstate ...

Hello Jolt !
The best way to contact DD for a response is to email her through her Animal League Website. I did and within 2 weeks received a very nice autographed photograph from her.
Just go to www.ddaf.org and contact her through there !

Re: Do You like BOBBY VINTON???

I like the Bobby Vinton repertory of songs but I never cared much for the thin tonal quality of his voice. I am glad to hear that he is still very much active in the business though he (and others from his generation) are hardly ever seen on US Television.
