Re: My Dream is Yours

I am continuing to research original reviews for Doris Day films. The following comments are from Time Magazine , Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post on Doris' film My Dream is Yours.

Re: 2022 Doris Day pictures

It occurred to me that on October 2-1985, Rock Hudson died. Both Doris Day and Elizabeth Taylor were close friends with Rock. The photo is dated 1986. Elizabeth was a driving force in raising money for AIDS research. Perhaps their shared friendship with Rock brought them together. Interestingly in D...

Re: 2022 Doris Day pictures

Hi Peter, I had forgotten how lovely Doris looked in her long gowns in Young Man With a Horn. Next time I watch this really good film I will pay more attention to the costumes. The 1986 photo of Doris on a boat with a woman is intriguing. The other woman looks very much like Elizabeth Taylor. I do k...

Re: 2022 Doris Day pictures

Thank you Peter for these Doris Day Midnight Lace photos. Doris is stunningly beautiful in this film. I would have loved to see an actor with more likability and warmth in the Rex Harrison role. Cary Grant , Peter O'Toole, Dirk Bogarde, or Peter Lawford would have had more emotional depth and chemis...

Re: Romance on the High Seas

The original review in The New York Times of Romance on the High Seas by Bosley Crowther is brutally harsh. It reads in part: "As much as we all like to welcome new faces and talents to the screen , it is hard to work up enthusiasm for the Warners' new starlet , Doris Day. Maybe this bouncy young la...

Thanks again Peter for these wonderful Doris Day photos that each tell a story.

Doris looks so glamorous in black in the 1974 photos with Biggest.

Each time I see a photo from Billy Rose's Jumbo it reminds me of what a joyful film it is and it's: fantastic music soundtrack.
