Re: Forum Banners 2019

Happy Easter to everyone! Bryan and Puck, thanks from me too for the latest banner! Doris looks really happy there with her basket of eggs. I also like the shade of blue she's wearing. Is everyone coping okay? I haven't been outside for weeks now - mostly I'm coping well but other times it seems lik...

Re: Forum Banners 2019

Hi Simon, Thanks for you comments about the David Hartman interviews and good to know that I was able to point you to something you hadn't seen before. I learnt something too, in that David Hartman was also an actor and had been in "The Ballad of Josie'" with Doris. It does go a long way to explain ...

Hi Johnny, I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the David Hartman interviews and share my thoughts about the emotional connection between Doris and Rock. I have seen the Vicki Lawrence interview in the past, and I'm sure it will already be somewhere on the Forum. However, I'll post the link here to ...

Hi Michael, I've been saving your second tribute to Doris until I had time to relax and sit down to watch it. That I have just done (twice actually) and I have to agree with Johnny - it is indeed a delight. The loving way she talks to the children is so genuine, you could really believe they were he...

Michael, thank you so much for that beautiful tribute to our Birthday Girl. So very moving, there were tears in my eyes too. I'm really sad we couldn't have watched it at the fan event at Julien's Auction Gallery, I was so looking forward to the week in LA. However, the good news for me is that I go...

Re: Forum Banners 2019

Hi Bryan, I really like this banner since the scene comes from my own personal favourite Doris Day film. She made better films, but none of them has the effect on me that 'Romance on the High Seas' does. I've lost count of the times I have watched it, and every time when Doris comes on stage to sing...

Hi Johnny, Yes, it came as a shock when I read it as he didn't seem all that old to me. I suppose I still think of him as Doris' son in 'With Six You Get Eggroll'.

Re: IN MEMORIAM DORIS DAY!

Ania,

With so many photos out there, I think you have made the ideal selection. The background music enhances the overall effect too. I especially love the trio of photos of Doris with her dear pal Rock. Thank you for taking the time to make this special tribute.
