Re: Collecting Doris Day

Yes indeed the Australian Doris Day Society is still in existence after 27 years!! I've tried to close it down a few times but all the members pleaded with me to keep it going as there were NO other fan clubs to subscribe to. Of course, we now have social media for those who have access to it and th...

Re: 2016 Doris Day Pictures

Surprised to see my photo pop up on the forum without consent but I guess we no longer have such control these days. Anyway, it is not a signed T-shirt.....I sent the actual photo to Doris for signing. We keep in regular contact and I will be talking to her again in a few weeks before Christmas.

Re: Lauren's DD photos

For a short time in the mid-1970s, Doris was a spokeswoman for Studio Girl Cosmetics, a division of the Helene Curtis Co. Maybe this photo and sidebar are a promotional from that time. It certainly is from Studio Girl Cosmetics.... I have another different brochure advertisement and I also have the...

No, I don't have pictures of myself from the 1987 Doris Day Convention in Carmel. Sorry.

I only asked because you refer to having your photo taken with her at that convention in your message of May 16th. Very sad if you no longer have it.... an irreplaceable memento indeed.

I knew my quiz question was an easy one and yes! Alam & Terry did appear. As to the appearance of the "other" person who worked closely with Doris.... no, not Mary Wickes (yes, she was in it) it was Doris' housekeeper for many years.... Katie.

Re: Which Doris Day film is this image from?

This is most definitely from the 1966 film "The Glass Bottom Boat" during the "imagining" scene when Rod Taylor visualises her as a spy ready to be shot by the firing squad.
