Re: Doris Day 2015 Quiz

Here are my answers to the latest quiz: Doris had a total of 22 children in her movies. 17 were boys and 5 were girls. One of the boys was adopted, in Tunnel of Love, and the other 21 were her biological children. Two more that didn't fit into a category: when she married Brian Keith in With Six You...

Re: Doris Day 2015 Quiz

Post by texas gonzalo » Wed Aug 09, 2017 6:12 pm Renie, I'll have to watch the three additional movies you mentioned to see if Doris smoked. I remember in LMOLM she did have a drink in front of her, but in Tea for Two, I doubt it. It is possible that Young Man might have a smoking scene. Thanks for ...

Re: Doris Day 2015 Quiz

For the most part, Bryan, you are correct with the quiz answers. It's all covered by Doris and A.E. Hotchner in her book, "Doris Day, Her Own Story." In my paperback version, it starts on page 37. While Doris did sing on Carlin's Carnival on WLW in Cincinnati, she was not paid for these sessions. He...

Re: Doris Day 2015 Quiz

Julie is another movie in which Doris smoked. I have a feeling there are others, especially movies where the characters she played were stressed, speaking as the ex-smoker that I am.

Doris' Voice on TV

This morning I had Good Morning America on TV in the living room and I was in the kitchen. Suddenly I heard Doris singing, "A Bushel and a Peck." When I went in the living room to check it out, I found that Doris' recording was being played to "accompany" a State Farm Insurance commercial. As we kno...

Re: Romance on the High Seas

I remember when it came to Chicago where I grew up. I first saw it when I was 7 years old. What I remember best is that I was so taken with Doris' singing and was otherwise bored with the movie. As I look back, I know I really liked hearing Doris sing on the radio but I wondered what she looked like...

Her Exquisite Voice

Having been caught up in the nasty political events in the U.S. of late, I was looking for something to soothe my soul. I found Doris Day with her exquisite voice in The Love Album. I hadn't listened to it for a while and I was struck by the wonderful quality of her voice and her singing ability evi...

Re: Les Brown Quote

Well, I think it was an honest mistake on my part. Afterall, Les Brown, the bandleader, was a wise man indeed. He recognized talent when he saw it and hired Doris to sing with his band! And the rest is history.

Re: Interesting Listening

Thanks Tex and Musiclover for your comments. There are lots of versions of this song on youtube. Who knew?
I actually used to think this song was one of those novelty tunes that was dreamed up by the studio for Doris to sing but I'm discovering that it was really a popular song in its' day. Renie

Interesting Listening

I was recently listening to some ragtime era music on youtube and came across a song played by an orchestra and also on a nickelodean that sounded so familiar but I couldn't quite place it. Finally I remembered that Doris sang it in one of her movies. Here are the links to all three versions. Renie ...

Ronald Reagan, if I counted correctly, appeared in 3 films with Doris. Name the films and say what role he played in each.
