Michelle~

What a great photo even if it is only a copy. I've never seen a picture of Doris on a marquee! What a treat!
Thanks for this.

I've seen all 39 movies. I'd like to pop in from time to time. ROTHS is one of my favorites.

Re: Interview with David Kaufman, June 2009

Oh god. Isn't Holt a hoot!!

This is rather old. It dates itself by David mentioning Joani Huntington, the Black Hole. Nope. Ain't gonna happen. No talkie to Doris.

David has already moved on and is in the beginning stages of his Mary Martin book.

Que sera sera.

Doris praised on Robert Harris' radio show

I have uploaded the radio show "I Hear Music - 2006" with Canadian host Robert Harris. I urge you to download and listen to this show. Mr. Harris has nothing but praise for Doris' singing calling her voice a "once in a lifetime" experience. In 50 minutes, he takes the listener from Doris' earliest p...

Re: Doris Day Photos started 20 Aug 2009

Suzie~ Guess you are not from the L.A. area. LOL!!! The answer as to why D/M moved to Beverly Hills is probably location. Toluca Lake was okay when Doris was working for Warner Bros. because it was only blocks from the studio and that studio was Doris' home base until her contract expired. Then they...

Jas and all~ With regard to your comment to me above - I guess the reason that we know so little about Doris' trip to Beverly to attend the Golden Globes is because I believe she was just there for the night and then - my guess is - that she and Sydney checked out of the hotel by checkout time the n...

Doris answers question about movie making

At the Doris Day Convention held in 1987, Doris spoke to us for 90 minutes and took questions and answers. I asked a question about the procedure in making musicals. She answered my question. Right after that I asked about putting the taps from tap dancing into the sound track and she answered that....

Re: Golden Globes

Thanks, Day! Doris looked fantastic and very happy despite her nervousness. Someone told me years ago that Sydney (her houseboy at the time) drove her to L.A. for the event. She stayed at the Beverly Wilshire (I think I'm right on that) and had spaghetti for dinner (ordered to her room). Howard or J...

Re: Casting - The Doris Day Story

I agree with both Mike and Howard on the voice thing. And RZ is the *last* female on earth that I would even associated with a bio on Doris - which I don't think will ever take place anyway. However, my pick would be Charlise Theron as an adult Doris, if I have to choose.

Re: Lauren Bacall Set to Receive Honorary Oscar

Doris does not want to been seen. That's the issue. She wouldn't do it if all she had to do is to drive over to the Cypress and let them film her there. I totally agree that once Oscar people have selected someone to honor with their award that they should see to it that that person gets the award n...

Re: Doris Day Photos started 20 Aug 2009

Thanks for the photos! I think Doris' Tocula Lake house is a far better home that her home in Beverly but prices in TL are far less than BH - and so Doris and Marty probably bought what they thought at the time was enough for them. Her home in Beverly was called by some as "modest." It was too close...

Doris doesn't deserve this paltry attitude....

This from a reader of the Orlando Sentinal:

"I finished reading David Kaufman's '08 biography of Doris Day a while back and thought maybe I'd watch one of her old movies, but I couldn't think of one I'd want to see again. After finishing the book, I didn't really care much for her."
