Re: 9/11 Anniversary

Thanks Webmaster Bryan & James ! 9/11 has had a most dampening effect on many here in the USA. We have had to forfeit many of our liberties in the name of security and I do believe that many here have lost much confidence in going about their business-------there is now way too much caution and a li...

Re: Julie Andrews

Julie Andrews had her own brand of charm. She sang beautifully back in her prime----I don't think it fair to compare her voice to Doris' because they were entirely different types of singers. I believe Miss Andrews began her singing career at a very young age - specializing in classical selections b...

Re: Caprice

Doris has been quoted (from the D. Kaufman book) that she refuses to discuss anything dealing with Caprice.
Also, I read that all those supposedly European locales were actually filmed in various sections of California.

Re: Being Seen In Public today

I agree ! These tabloids suffer from what I call the 'Greta Garbo' syndrome. They target a 'star' who is no longer active in the business and do much hounding. Its terrible for the 'star' and I think quite boring for the general public. Not only those 'rags' but CBS Sunday Morning repeated twice its...

Re: Lauren Bacall Set to Receive Honorary Oscar

Lauren is definitely a movie survivor.
Not many from her era are even around or working.
Debbie Reynolds does mostly LIVE performing these days but acts a bit in occasional movie.
Does anyone know if any of the others are still active ? Offhand I cannot think of anyone.

Re: Lauren Bacall Set to Receive Honorary Oscar

I think he was doing theater work at the time. Lauren eventually became a big star at Warner Brothers and remembered ...

Re: Ann Miller Cameo in CALAMITY JANE !

Thanks Mike for making the correction.
Evidently--Ann Miller did not make that cameo in Calamity Jane. I do recall that she was actually listed on that website's listing of the film a few years back but it has since been corrected.
Again, Many Thanks for looking it up !

Re: "Calamity Jane" Assures Doris' Longevity

Young people. I think that when kids see "Calamity Jane" (and a lot of parents make sure they do), they fall in love with Doris Day and want to know more about her and her other films. I read the comments of teenagers on IMDb and I was astounded by how many there were. Doris' films are still seen i...

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

Well I don't think it would have been easy for Doris to find the right mate in life. She started out in the big band business so the people she met were almost entirely from the business. Her first two spouses were both musicians and the third - an agent. In the 40's - she was often 'on the road' - ...

I've never seen any wedding pictures either. I think because it was a private ceremony that they deliberately kept it out of the press.
