Re: Sad News

Hello Everyone,

I’m still having password issues but managed to log on today.

Jacques has contacted the host platform again but there has been no progress. He told me this morning that he will let me know as soon as he has any news to report.

Wishing you all a healthy 2021!
Michael

Re: Forum Banners 2019-2020

I hope everyone is healthy and safe this holiday season. Visiting the forum has become bittersweet for me. The number of active posters has become virtually nil since Bryan passed and I feel his absence each time I check-in. It's nice to read the few new posts that appear but the experience is not t...

Re: Sad News

Thank you, Dominque. The forum isn't the same anymore without Bryan's chipper personality and creativity. I reached out to Jacques today to see if there has been any progress with the forum migration. Will let everyone know as soon as I hear back. LATEST UPDATE from Jacques re: the Forum Migration -...

Re: Jumbo

I've always loved Jumbo! It's cinematic comfort food of the highest order. And let's not forget that Doris, Stephen Boyd, Jimmy Durante, Martha Raye and the film were nominated for Golden Globe awards. I think it might have been a bigger hit if they'd filmed it ten years earlier but it stands as one...

Re: Sad News

All, I haven't heard anything more from Jacques. He is probably very busy and consumed with grief. These things take time and the forum may not be his top priority at the moment. Let's try to be patient. I don't believe there is any harm in posting as long as we don't upload huge files, photos, or v...

All, Jacques continues to work with the British Library on migrating legacy versions of DorisDay.net and the forum to their archives at some point in the near future. As soon as those plans are firm and a target date is determined, I will let everyone know. He is unable to log-on to the forum and pr...

Re: Doris Mentioned in New Book about Hitchcock and Actors

I often wonder if some of these critics and authors have children. If they did, they might understand what abject parental panic and fear look like. It's a feeling of helplessness, guilt and terror like no other. Toss-in Jo McKenna's high strung nature, her resentment towards Ben for uprooting her t...

Re: Sad News

Thats a nice idea, Johnny. I like it. In case you missed it before, here is a link to donate money to the Marie Curie hospice care provider who assisted Bryan during his transition. I donated a few days ago and it was easy to do. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/Bryan-Robert-James?utm_campaign...

What a beautiful tribute, Ania.

I completely understand how you feel. His presence is everywhere on the forum. Bryan is the forum. How can he no longer be here? This is a huge loss.

According to the Tweet, they played Doris's music at the funeral. So sweet, so fitting. Here's the text that went with the...

It is entirely possible that it will vanish one day without advance notification to the membe...
