Re: Julie

If nothing else, this film introduced Doris to the splendor of Carmel and the Monterey Peninsula. That alone makes it worthwhile. Julie may be preposterous but it's watchable because Doris commits 100% to the role. It gave her another chance to show what she could do dramatically and it moved her fu...

Re: Cypress Inn

How nice to get some positive news in the midst of the pandemic, social unrest and economic fallout. I've worried about Carmel and the single-owned businesses that make that town so unique as well as the many service industry workers who drive in every day from less expensive areas to keep the hotel...

Re: The Man Who Knew Too Much

Quite a contrast to Kim Novak who objected to the similar gray suit she wore in Vertigo. Novak went to Hitchcock in protest but he held film because his vision of the film was detailed and non-negotiable. I love how Doris described her reaction to seeing herself onscreen. She's right - the actor has...

Here's some tidbits about the soundtrack album which was a smash hit. From Wikipedia "Love Me or Leave Me is a Doris Day album based on the soundtrack of...

Simon,

Thank you for posting those timely lyrics. That was very thoughtful of you.

As Johnny mentioned, it certainly is a surreal time with no apparent end in sight.Thank goodness we have Doris's movies, music and television work online whenever we need a Doris Day booster shot.

Re: Young at Heart

This film is too sweet and Americana for Gelb's tastes. It's about as Mid-Century Eisenhower as it gets and that apparently didn't set well with his cynicism. I do agree that Sinatra's refusal to die harmed the ending, but WB made this version for Mid-Century, middle class Americans who loved Doris,...

One of my all-time favorite banners. One of my all-time favorite Doris films too. Love the bright, colorful pink and her stylish pajama outfit. This was the perfect choice.

Thank you, Bryan. You have a real knack, my friend.

More terrific finds from the wizard of rare photos. Thank you, Peter. You never cease to amaze me.

Interesting to see the on set photos from The Doris Day Show. Barbara Lampson and Connie Edney remained close to Doris for many years and they were loyal friends to her. That says so much.

Re: April in Paris

Not my favorite movie or leading man, but it has its moments.

Best thing by far is Doris's melting rendition of the title song. I think hers is better than Sinatra's. Nice to read that Shelley Winters loved Doris's version too. Thanks for sharing that, Johnny.

In director Charles Walters’s memoir, he writes that he was not a Doris Day fan before the film started, but he quickly grew to love her. According to Walters, Doris wrote him a note after the first day’s shooting that read: “If all the days on Daisies are as nice as the first one, I hope it never e...

I believe the location is Paradise Cove in Malibu.

And yes I think that’s Gig Young in the background.

Hi Robert, You are correct. David Hartman hosted Good Morning America when he conducted the series of interviews with Doris. They were shown over a consecutive four day period in March 1983. I believe this was her first televised interview since 1976 when she was promoting her book. Indeed, the rapp...
