Re: TCM

Doris Martin, was it the UK DVD you purchased ? If ever a new edition of Midnight Lace on DVD could be issued, would it be too much to hope that a French audiotrack would be included ? I know this audiotrack exists and is very good (far from true of all Doris films) for having seen the movie on the ...

Re: a good one by dodo

Thanks Mike, Very good idea to combine Cinderella and Doris. Cinderella looks like Doris, don't you think ? When I was a boy I was going to see those old Disney's for Christmas with my grand mother and I loved the songs... the way they were sung at that time, because today they have changed them. I ...

Re: YOUR THE PRODUCER

Two days ago there was a very great movie on French television: Orson Welles' Touch of Evil. Very impressive. Isn't it the kind of film noir that our webmaster likes, and that could figure on his site dedicated to classic movies ? Touch of Evil has a very special story related to the way Orson Welle...

It's interesting to compare the new version of "heaven tonight" on BBC2 and the not remastered version previously posted on here in 2008 by Mikey and still on line : http://www.dorisday.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2550 http://www.box.net/shared/zs91mbejtr5cyaiirqjr It looks like they have somewha...

Carmel is 8 hours ahead from London and 9 hours ahead from Paris, so when it is 10pm in London it is 2pm in Carmel.

Hey you all lucky guys who are in Carmel, how is the weather over there ? Here it's been raining all day long.
Have a good time.

It's a lovely day tomorrow

I would like to share with you that song by Vera Lynn that haunts me : it's a lovely day tomorrow (1940). This very simple melody composed by Irving Berlin has an incredible power to hearten and fortify, just like so many Doris songs do. It starts on a waltz tempo and ends on a swing rythm and I wis...

Dorine it's a must see ! This movie is a total delight. It's on the Warner DVD collection #2, one of my first purchases. It's the atmosphere of the late 40s, the magic of the old time cruise and of Latin America, superb music with the Page Cavanaugh Trio, and a sparkling Doris...

I too have downloaded the show and am very happy to listen. I missed most of it when it was originally played on april 3rd because it was Easter vigil and I was going to church. And also my internet connexion is not that good and there were interruptions. So many thanks to Mike and Keith. Pedro.
