Re: Movie song

NO..Doris did NOT do the track for that film. The song never appeared in a Doris Day Movie, nor was Doris ever seen singing it. I would love to find AN ACCURATE LIST of EVERY SINGLE TITLE SONG by Doris that made it to the top 100 records. It never ceases to amaze me that so many of her SUPER HITS di...

Re: Doris Day GRAMMY Award 2008

The show was embarrassing, to say the least, as was the quality of the music and performers. I am glad Doris did NOT attend: I would have been embarrassed for her! Amy Winehouse...come on, get real! How said as well that SECRET LOVE is the ONLY Doris song in the Grammy List (not counting Les Brown)....

Re: Being a Doris Day Fan

When SUNDAY MORNING did its bit on Doris, I did not have the tv on. Within the course of 4 minutes, I received 5 phone calls from friends telling me to turn on the tv because they were doing a segment on Doris. So much for "telling my friends about Doris". Most ot them love her, too!

Re: AFI 10 Top 10 Romantic Comedies

THE MAJORITY of the shows WITH LISTS of BEST THIS and BEST THAT stink. And notice, Hollywood's all time top female movie star (our Doris) is NEVER on ANY of these lists. SO..SHE IS STILL being underrated and overlooked 50 years later!!!!!

Re: AWASH IN DORIS DAY

JOHN When you do her book about music, I HOPE that you will be the first person TO ACCURATELY list ALL of her recordings CHRONOLOGICALLY from the first ones, including those which said "vocal chorus by Doris Day" when she recorded with Les Brown. NO ONE HAS DONE THAT TO DATE. The 5 boxed sets of cds...

Re: THAT ELUSIVE ACADEMY AWARD

Watch the tv special "Sentimental Journey with Doris Day". Haskell, herself, admits that she was one of those who criticized Doris back in the 50's and 60's!

Re: cbs news sunday morning - possible DD segment

Thanks...it is so nice to find another place where others care so much about my lady. My friends/family are tired of hearing about her/ h earing her records/ watching her movies. Their loss! I think THE WORLD is finally realizing just how important Doris Day was...and isn't it about time? And she ne...

Re: AWASH IN DORIS DAY

Thanks, John. Nice to be here. I never tire talking about Doris..although my family and all my friends keep telling me ENOUGH ALREADY. Is it ever enough? Worse...I STILL think, with real effort, SOMEBODY could talk Doris into a new movie! I am keeping my fingers crossed that Liz Taylor will be the o...

THAT ELUSIVE ACADEMY AWARD

Isn't it amazing that 40 years after Doris Day has finished her movie career, so many of the so-called critics (many of whom, like Mollie Haskell) bombasted her when she was at her peak, now contend that Doris should have an Honorary Oscar. Isn't that like saying: "Gee, Doris...we're sorry. We know ...

AWASH IN DORIS DAY

I just finished reading a plethora of Doris Day biographies. I started by reading CONSIDERING DORIS DAY by Santopietro, which I found very difficult to read. Perhaps it was the tiny print or the fact that he considers himself enough of a music authority to make dumb comments like: "She can only sing...

Re: cbs news sunday morning - possible DD segment

I loved the 10 minute segment. It is funny, to me, that every time I mention the name Doris Day...it doesn't matter if I am talking to someone past their 60's, or below 20, I ALWAYS get the same response...'OOOOHHH I LOVE DORIS DAY....and they do, for different reasons..but all reasons gladly accept...
