I personaly enjoyed watching the Doris Day Show. I started watching the 4th and 5th season first, and only later saw the first three seasons on the french channel. I loved watching those shows every Monday night and nothing could separate me from the TV while Doris was on. I would say the show, more...

Hi Ken,
I'm in Youngstown,not downtown, at a library , since this is the only place I have e-mail access. You can e-mail me at [email protected].
We could meet for coffee and talk about Doris. It's always fun to talk to DD fans, but don't feel obliged. Only if its convenient.
Cheers,
Velda

Let's see who is the first DD fan who knows for sure whether Doris recorded "Heart's Desire". I have never heard Doris sing this song.

Sue Raney's Doris Day tribute album

I came across this and thought it would be interesting to all. CD: Sue Raney Sue Raney, Heart's Desire: A Tribute To Doris Day (Fresh Sound). Sue Raney is hardly without a following, but it is a puzzle why a singer of her gifts never achieved widespread fame. For far too long, general audiences have...

You made me laugh out loud twice , Bryan. First "the crow is dead" remark and then " it's like the pope smoking cannabis" I think Doris started smoking as a teenager. Anyway, at one time it was sexy to smoke and she holds that cigarette pretty elegantly. Doris and Kirk look like they are flirting. H...

Charles Nelson Rilley

I think it slipped under everybody's radar, but , Charles Nelson Rilley, who appeared as the killer Santa on the Doris Day show, passed away a few days ago. He also won a Toni or two. RIP Charles.

I liked Santopietro's book on the whole , but ,didn't ,at all, agree with his asessment of Calamity Jane and Pillow Talk. In Calamity Jane Doris gave a bravura performance ,and both films are are jewls in her acting crown. In Pillow Talk she established a gold standard for romantic comediennes. If a...

Bryan, I feel you have been unjustifiably attacked and your material has been stolen. They obviously wanted to make an 'example' of somebody, but, they are going against their own policies.

I liked Betty Hutton's high energy. I saw the Greatest Show on Earth and Annie Get Your Gun. She was very entertaining and talented. It's interesting that hers and Doris' path crossed in many ways starting from Doris taking over Betty's role in ROTHS. Also Doris had wanted the Annie Get Your Gun rol...

I found this on the HSUS site. It seems a recent audio pitch from Doris for the Spay Day. Doris sounds great.
