Soundtrack CD

I was just watching Caprice and I thought of the Bear Family CD Soundtrack of Frank DeVol's score for Pillow Talk , and I thought, I'd love to get one of his score for Caprice as well. I've always loved the music for this film, and hearing it in stereo on the dvd is really great. Especially the jazz...

Some musings on MOD

"We're the only one in our school that has a drownded mother!" :D "She can't some back. She's drownded. Like this: glub, glub, glub." :D "Don't be sad. She's not in the grave. She's at the bottom of the ocean: the deepest part!" :D Anyone else notice how HARD Doris hits Thelma Ritter with the water ...

Tanja, yes, there was a second unit who shot location shots of Paris for the title sequence. But that was not Doris; it was a double walking down the street and up to Eiffel Tower. The shots of her looking at her watch just before the titles start and at the ticket booth are shot in front of a rear ...

Yes, Fox did a superb job. I'm thrilled with these dvds. They could have slapped the films alone on disc, but they really took care and went the extra mile. They did Doris proud!! :D

I just read the complete review. As usual, skees53 is a little off. To each his own when it comes to opinions, but his facts and assumptions are just a little off. And if he thinks it's completely strange to have a murder in a sitcom episode, he has obviously never seen Monty Python or a British sit...

Re: Light Blue terrycloth robe?

I have seen photos of Doris in movie books with the bulky light blue terry cloth robe on with Thelma Ritter, but bever saw Doris wear it in the movie scenes. Did I miss the scene? Didn't Marilyn wear the same kind of robe for Somethings Got To Give? No Ray, you didn't miss a scene. There was a sequ...

Hi Peter. Thanks for the warm welcome. I love that photo of Eunice and Ernie as well. One of my favorites.

I totally agree Ray! I hope they also have alternate and stereo takes for this special like they did on the first one. That was awesome. Almost like getting 2 shows for the price of one. And to have any additional takes of her and John Denver would be wonderful! Of course, I'll be ecstatic to get th...

Yes, Lauren, that is such a great intro, "Greetings, chum!" And when she walks past the other employee and gives out a really bright, "Hi!" (And one that never ceases to crack me up, "Aw, the canal's for schmoes!")

I really want this movie on DVD. What a sparkling debut and it's one of those breezy romantic musicals that makes you smile from start to finish. It's like a tonic for what ails you. And I am the only person who howls everytime Doris utters that wonderful line at the travel agency: "but never as a ...

Re: Not Crazy About The Cover, But...

If you'll notice, Ray Walston and Doris played his char lady scene straight, with no comical elements at all. Well the whole disguise is so comical and far-fetched that it becomes all the funnier that they play it straight. It's not like he's really made up like a woman to fool anybody. That's what...
