Peter Graves

Just read that Peter Graves passed away this morning in LA. Apparently, had a heart attack after returning home from brunch with wife, children and grandchildren. Always thought that he and Doris made a good looking couple in "Ballad of Josie". RIP, Mr. Graves.

Re: Casting - The Doris Day Story

Doris' speaking voice is her one characteristic that could not be copied by anyone. That throaty, cheerful, and clearly enunciated sound is hers alone. Therefore, to me, it would be difficult to suspend belief and think that any actress was doing a credible job as Doris...

Re: Doris Day in Julie

Have always thought it a shame that "Julie" was in black and white....with the scenery and filming outside and such. It's hard now to look back on a time where a decision was made to either film in color or black and white...can you imagine that happening now?

Re: Chat about the Magic 63 birthday broadcast - The actual day

Well, I really enjoyed the 1st call and didn't think Ed was interrupting her too often. It was a nice chat between friends... Regarding the fan calls - Maybe it was just too much last year? I could imagine that their whole phone system must have almost broken down last year with all the calls... Th...

Re: LIFTING MY SPIRITS

Re: your favourite male and female singers

Without a doubt, Doris is my favorite female singer. I'd rather listen to her than anyone else. I do also like Karen Carpenter and Anne Murray, but they're a faraway second and third from Doris. I tend not to listen to as many male singers. If I had to choose, first would be Harry Connick, and then ...

The dress above was designed by Irene for Doris to wear to the Oscars in 1960 when she was nominated for Pillow Talk. She liked the dress so much, she included it in her screen wardrobe for the film she was making at the time - Midnight Lace. By the premier of Midnight Lace - Doris had her hair cut...

Re: Story behind the photo

Good question! Looks circa "Midnight Lace" - was it the premier? Was Irene the designer? Don't know the year without looking it up - 1962? Jas probably knows! :wink: You're right on the designer...it was Doris' favorite, Irene. And, it does involve "Midnight Lace", but it wasn't for the premier.

From the silent days, my favorite is Mary Pickford. Also like Colleen Moore and Lillian Gish, who I met once in the late 70's. If you ever have a chance to see a silent film, in a theatre with a real theatre organ as an accompaniment, DO IT! You'll have a new and better understand of silent movies w...

Re: Story behind the photo

This one might be too easy, so I'll make it a little more challenging with three questions....Doris is modeling a dress here.

1. What year is it?
2. What was the event/movie the dress was designed for?
3. Who designed it?

In one of the interviews in the PBS documentary "Sentimenal Journey", she has on a fairly large, square ring. It looks like it might be turquoise; whatever it is, it seems to fit her hand well and looks good on her.

Re: Doris and Kathryn Kuhlman

She was an American faith healer that Doris seemed to put some trust into. She took Billy deWolfe to see Kathryn Kuhlman when he was dying, hoping for a miracle. Doris wrote about that in her autobiography. I'm sure there are videos of Ms. Kuhlman on You Tube.

Re: best chemistry

I liked her with Rock, Garner, Cagney and Rod, but I really like her with John Raitt. The way they moved together and the way they looked at one another was enough heat to light all the matches going into Hernando's Hideaway! They really looked like a couple in love and otherwise!
