Re: Please Don't Eat the Daisies

Originally, MGM bought the property with Doris Day in mind to star. However, after "Billy Rose's Jumbo" didn't fare well at the box office, they decided to look elsewhere for a star. Debbie was a good choice - she did well - even got an Academy Award nomination.

Re: Forum Banners 2019

It was an honor, Michael, to have participated in my small way, to this excellent documentary. It should be required viewing for any Doris fan. You will love it - guaranteed!

Re: Chatting about Doris...

Just discovered this quote from the great Angela Lansbury: "Extremely sad news. Doris Day was an extraordinary talent & even greater human being, who devoted her life to helping others, especially those, who have no voice of their own. One of the biggest stars ever, yet so unaffected & down-to-earth...

Bryan: A number of years ago I emailed Jim Pierson (MPI Video), an authority on everything Doris, and asked about "The Pajama Game" not being televised.

Re: Poll: Doris Would Have Been Better

Thanks, Johnny. Looking over the list of film possibilities, "South Pacific" is my number one choice, by far. Doris as Nellie Forbush would have been one for the ages. She was born to play that role ... Can you imagine Doris with her infectious, exuberant personality, in addition to her dancing skil...

Re: Poll: Doris Would Have Been Better

As far as I know, Johnny, Doris never recorded "Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair."
PS: I see you've eliminated "Wash That Man" from your original post.

Re: 2020 Doris Day photos

Peter - thanks so much for posting so many wonderful, rare photos. I've seen the first photo at the Academy Awards rehearsal, and was always so disappointed in that her back was turned to the camera. But the other two - a rare treat! Thanks again!

Michael, you're so right about "Let No Walls Divide" being timely. Can't remember when there has been such division in our country (USA). When Reagan helped to bring down the wall in Germany, I wrote Doris and suggested that she get Columbia Records to release the song everywhere. It's a great, mean...

Unbelievable! There's not a clunker in this list. Just great films ... with one exception. I too am not a fan of "It's a Wonderful Life." I've never been able to get through it. After having read this, I sent a retort mentioning "Love Me or Leave Me," "Calamity Jane" and "The Thrill of it All," all ...

Love how they describe Doris in this brief tribute on the Vanity Fair web site:

"Doris Day
