Re: Politics

What I stated was based on fact. I was discussing the morgage mess and the economy. I watched a special on it and it was well researched. They said the democrats were more culpable. It goes back to President Carter and legislation that was passed at the time. Banks and other lending institutions we...

Re: Politics

I know this is a very critical subject but I have to say I absolutely agree with Marion on that one - while watching Palins interview with Katie Couric the other day I couldn't help but laughing - I couldn't take her at all serious. And the thought of her being the next President (and there is a VE...

Re: Teacher's Pet

I love this movie. It is so well written and the script is so tight. Its really a precursor to Pillow Talk in the sense of the mistaken identity aspect. The lines, the acting. I though this was wonderful. I think it should have been more popular at the time because it is so good. One of her best.

Re: Move Over Darling

I like this movie. There are so many good scenes. I like the end in the court room and also the very end where she is finally reunited with her husband and children and the children finally know who she is. Funny and moving at the same time. I think Doris Day was heads and shoulders above Marilyn Mo...

Re: vies on the Olympics

Political correctness...it's getting so difficult to know what is the PC way of discussing anything, any more.

Re: Doris for a day/ in one of her movies

I like Rock too, Carol - what is there not to like? Mamie Van Doren claimed that one night Rock drove her home and made mad passionate love to her so maybe he wasn't as gay as we think. But no matter, he was Doris' best co-star - or one of them. And good ol' Mamie claimed Doris Day was a drag and s...

Re: A discussion about the show

Did anyone notice that when her and Peter Lawford are playing a scene together, that they use that heavy glazed effect on Doris, it hurts my eyes to look at her. I looked up Peter Lawford's age and he was 45 at the time of filming the DD show. So he was 3 years older then Doris; however, he looked ...

She looks great in that read cape, scarf...and she is the only one who can pull off knee socks. Wish more women would wear them, but then again, they don't have Doris's legs. The Man Hat...

The woman has worked for her entire life. Getting up at 4 am, traveling to promote movies and the book. she should be left alone. I...
