Re: Casting - The Doris Day Story

After seeing her last night on Dancing with the Stars, I would vote for Katherine Jenkins.
She can definitely sing and it appears she can dance.

Re: Pillow Talk on the Big Screen

The Hershey (PA) Theater runs classic movies once a month over the winter.
On Feb. 12th, for Valentine's Day, they ran Pillow Talk! :D The place was packed. :D It was great. I sat about 7 rows from the front just so no one would sit in front of me.

The mermaid costume sold at the most recent Debbie Reynolds auction. $4500, I think. Well above the estimate.

James Garner

Rock Hudson

and Brian Keith (if they didn't already have their own shows, a TV show with the two of them would have run for years :D )

Re: Doris Day Press books

The sets I have are 11"x14" and all the sets that I am collecting for the 39 films contain 8 cards. I have never seen any American 12 sets for any of Ms Day's films. The only film for which I do not have any cards is The Man Who Knew Too Much. I have 23 complete sets and 9 sets that only need 1 to 3...

Re: Doris Day: General Discussion 2

I watched for two reasons. 1) because I like Big Band music, especially Glenn Miller. and 2) I knew at some point they'd cover Les ...

Re: Barry Comden, DD's fourth husband dead at 74

Doris and Rock were best friends and you don't normally marry your best friends, Ray, do you? :) You probably wouldn't remain best friends for long! Plus Rock was still hanging out with the boys. :wink: People do need to marry their best friends. After the hot passionate romance fades you need to k...

A mural is a large picture painted or affixed directly on a wall or ceiling. Greatly enlarged photographs may also be used. A mural is like a trompe l'oeil.

Re: How many of Doris' film co-stars are still alive?

As a contempory, Jean Simmons.
I've recently really discovered what a talented actress she is. The Big Country was great and I cannot fathom why she did not get an Oscar nomination for Elmer Gantry. The Grass is Greener is another good vehicle with an outstanding cast (Grant/Kerr/Simmons/Mitchum)

I also can't stand Rush and I'm a Rep. (Middle of the road; can't stand the political bickering either) I knew Doris was a Rep also, but I find it hard believe she subscribes to the over the top views of Rush's. I agree with LPT.
