Clinton or Obama

I wouldn't care as long as it's Clinton or Obama. The problem is America's lurid past. This election, as predicted, has turned into a race war (exaserbated by a rabid press). After nearly 8 years of Bush, America is not looked on in the best light by the rest of the world. What the Democratic Party ...

Most of the big cities has glorious movie palaces, especially downtown. In my hometown, Kansas City, they didn't get rid of them until the multiplex idea took over in the 80s. We had The Paramount, Lowe's Midland, The Capri, The Empire, The Studio, The Roxy , all downtown. There were other theatres ...

The Gem Theatre

A Great Family Experience Unlike The Byrd Theatre’s lavish 1920s-era French Renaissance decor, The Gem , built a decade later, features Art Deco architecture. The gorgeous neon-enhanced Art Deco sign harkens back to a time when movie titles and stars’ names were shouted from giant marquis and names...

The selection of awardees is alway suspect. Take the C. B. DeMille Awards. Can you imagine Lauren Bacall being honored and not Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine ? Both ladies, along with Richard Widmark and Tony Curtis , have been ignored by the AFI, the Oscars (even though both ladies have rece...

Suspicious

Doesn't it seem strange that Doris Day would be offered a special Oscar and it didn't get leaked to the press before the Oscars, this after all the campaigns for her to be honored? Liz Smith nor Rex Reed knew anything? The press knows everytime some starlette changes her underwear. The Academy, whic...

At Last, Starlift

I'm just happy people will finally get the chance to see "Starlift." It's not a Doris Day film. Day and others like Cagney, Roman, Mayo and Gordon have cameos visiting an air force base. Day is cute as hell, but the real stars of the picture are Janice Rule and Dick Haggerty , I think his name was. ...

Ralph, I don't dispute what you say but my comment was based on what Doris has said many times, in her book and in many interviews that she does not like watching her films, she wants to do it all again. In the 1993 PBS documentary she said it again when she said something along the lines of 'I don...

Lauren Bacall

When you look back at Lauren Bacall's career, she was never a top boxoffice star, but a leading lady on the same level as Dorothy Malone, Debra Paget, Yvonne De Carlo, Rhonda Fleming, Arlene Dahl and Joanne Dru . I think many of the awards shows gave her these A-List awards because she was married t...

Of course as we all know, that would never have happened, at any time, not least due to Doris' aversion to watching herself on screen! I don't want to beat a dead horse, but I don't think Doris minds watching herself on the screen. During the absolutely ridiculous clips that were chosen for the C. ...

Doris Day has CHOSEN not to appear in public for personal reasons. She might be healthy and fit, but chooses not to make public appearances. This could have to do with privacy or it could have to do with protecting her public image. Most of us have to agree that when Doris accepted the C. B. DeMill...

You see how Doris Day dominates the cover. She sells.
