Is it true that Warners Videos has control of "The Tunnel of Love," "Julie," and "Where...Lights Went Out?"? They were all released by MGM.
Warners owns the distribution rights to all MGM films made prior to 1986.

That was brilliant. Thanks for posting the link. Two of my favorite shows. In fact, having just completed the entire series on DVD of TDDS, I am now working my way through Hawaii Five-0. I was immediately struck, on my first viewing of Doris' show, at the similarity of the opening credits to Hawaii-...

Re: No, She Never Did...

I do understand why she didn't want to do it, especially with Warner Brothers bringing MGM's Judy Garland in to star in the lavish and spectacular dramatic musical, "A Star is Born." STAR was not a WB project, it was a Sidney Luft production through Transcona Enterprises. Doris would have had to ha...

June was a sweet gal, and quite a trooper. She never sent me into the clouds, but I always found her charming. We'll miss you June. You're right, Katie....very few of the old-timers still around. Thank goodness for the films, because if I had to pick a star today to follow I'd be out of luck.

I love Judy as much as Doris, but that's an apples and oranges conversation. They are two completely different artists and the only thing they have in common is the triple-threat factor.

Re: xx

When one remembers that this venture into singing was really due to her accident and the fact that Doris' mother was really just trying to get her to "sit still," it is amazing that Doris took a rather small voice and sculpted it into what it became is simply amazing. Unlike many performers, Doris'...

Re: 2 songs to download

Please note~ Don't expect Doris to sound like she did even with Les Brown. She has a very small, soft voice in these recordings. You wouldn't even recognize her voice. It goes to prove how much work she did to improve herself in a small amount of time. It's fascinating to hear the progression of Do...

I guess I'm in a definite minority in my love of black and white. I don't mind it a bit, and feel JULIE and TEACHER'S PET benefit from it greatly. TUNNEL suffers a bit from being shot in CinemaScope, as it's a comedy of conversation, and doesn't need the wide screen to shows couples chatting. It was...

Oh, did everyone listen to "The Man Who Invented Love" on the "Pajama Game" page? What do you think of the song? Would it have fit into the movie...all 2:30 seconds of it? I think the song was better left out of the film. It not quite good enough a composition, and the emotions are better explored ...

I avoid comparing this and the 1934 version. They are really completely different animals. This version is excellent and Stewart and Day have great chemistry. The elements of suspense and comedy are well balanced, and the Storm Cloud Cantata sequence is thrilling. I also love the scene in the church...

This was one of the first times I couldn't finish a Doris Day film. It's really bad in so many ways. I have since managed to make it all the way through, but doubt it will receive many re-visits. Caprice, Move Over Darling, and The Ballad of Josie are the only other Doris films that required multipl...

Once stereo records became available in 1958 it was common for artists to go back and re-record songs previously released in monaural.

There's a lot to like in this film, but overall it only achieves a "good" rating from me. In the opening circus parade the poor MGM lot appears to be falling down around them. The players do their best with a less than stellar script. Memorable moments include the excellent "Why Can't I?" and "Littl...

KATIE!

Glad you're enjoying the show. I agree about the long hair. It looks great.


I rented a copy of Disc One from NetFlix to see if it had the same problems as my first two, and it didn't. Hmm. Hope the new one MPI sends me is like the rental -- problem free.

I agree that Mary Tyler Moore stole the hat thing from Day in her opening
Perhaps that is because Doris' and Mary's opening credit sequences were created by the same man - Remy Kramer. Abby Singer was also Production Manager of both shows.

SMNF was a big step down, imo. The script is lame, and the situations and acting forced and unconvincing. The last half becomes nearly unbearable and monotonous.

Well, got my Doris set yesterday (season two) and was happily viewing when the disc went wacko in the middle of episode 4. The disc has a dig in it that can't be fixed. Had to return it to Amazon. :-( I guess I'm destined to wait to enjoy the whole season. I must say the extra features were a blast....
