Re: NPR Greatest Voice Poll

Did I really write 'vice' ? Too funny. Thanks for the correction, Bryan. I hope everyone is voting for Doris. The movie is 96% done. Needs more tweaking. I got a young guy to edit it. He's quite good. I'm planning a fundraising/ Doris Day tribute/ movie showing evening. I'll give you more details wh...

Re: Just Back From a Weekend in Carmel

Michael,your post and pictures bring back great memories of Carmel and the Cypress Inn, We never saw Doris , but felt her presence. I felt so at home in her Inn. It was great meeting other DD fans. Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to All.

Re: Doris Day: Misleading and intrusive media reporting

A great translation, Marion. Not an easy thing to do. It's great that Doris' fans are actively standing up against the lies and half-truths written about her. It just shows our love and respect for her.

I hope Doris knows that we are all behind her 100% and won't support the publications that exploit her. Is 2:30 at York, horse racing? Maybe, I should use...

Re: Important Statement about Doris Day by her friends

Well written Bryan. The excessive , recent media scrutiny of Doris amounts to stalking. Everything about her life is totally taken out of context. She really doesn't deserve that. Unfortunately, the recent books written about her fuel the unfounded stories. As fans we can spread the truth and this f...

Re: Celebrating Doris

Bryan, What gave Doris her 'virgin' image were the sex comedies. In the fifties all the young women were expected to be virgins and that was not even an issue. Just look at Sabrina, Roman Holiday, Tammy movies. No one saddled Audrey Hepburn and Debbie Reynolds with the virgin image, but, they certai...

They are both great women who have done great things for the world. We don't know that Oprah hasn't been asking Doris for years for an interview. But, ...

My sympathies, Jas. I can imagine you are very sad. I know how close one can get to a pet. They become our family. My dear dog , Murphy, died over a year ago and I still have his ashes at home. I miss him as you miss Laurie.

Now, that's celebrating Doris! That was thoroughly enjoyable , Bryan. I've never heard Doris' comments on this movie. Where did you get that? Great pictures, Lloyd. Also, a thanks to all the members who make the great You Tube videos. Your creativity and effort are appreciated.

Hi Sheila. Motown’s Berry Gordy, who discovered the Supremes, was a great fan of Doris and partially styled the Supremes after Doris. He wanted the Supremes to be popular with both black and white audiences. This shows that Doris was far more influential in modern pop than she's given credit for.

You are both right. The agents and managers have a lot of influence. I think Doris reacted the way she did because she was given the wrong message. Whereby she thought Ronnell Bright didn't want to work with her, he wasn't comfortable with her accompanist. It had nothing to do with Doris for whom Br...
