Re: Forum Banners 2019

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...

Dear Johnny,

Thank you for your comments. I'm so glad you liked the video. Doris makes it so easy. Her radiance and warmth inspire me and I was thrilled to honor her this way.

Below is the second video that we created for the fan event last week. It is a tribute to The Doris Day Show, its star (naturally) and the talented supporting cast. This video wouldn't have happened without the wonderful Scott Dreier who guided me through it. Michael https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Re: Forum Banners 2019

I'm pretty sure it was not taken in Spain. That outcropping on the left looks quite a bit like Morro Rock, which is about 100 miles south of Monterey. Morro Bay is about 20 miles north of Pismo Beach. There are photos of the Melchers in Monterey in the early 1950s, and they also went to Pismo Beach...

Re: Forum Banners 2019

It’s an amazing shot but I’m not positive it was taken in Spain. Some think the backdrop is Lake Tahoe.

Great question. I don't see anything on the Amazon page indicating these are remasterd versions. My guess is they are re-releasing them in honor of her birthday and perhaps to capitalize on widespread interest generated by the estate auction. Here is a link to the Amazon page. https://www.amazon.com...

They are so special. I also appreciate how you credit the original photographer whenever possible. The color...

I created this video to honor the actors who played Doris’s children in her films and television series. It was supposed to be part of the Fan Event that was scheduled for tonight at Julien’s Auction Gallery. Because we weren’t able to view it together as a group, I felt it would be appropriate to s...

Re: Long Review of Day-Hudson Movies

This is a very nice tribute to the Day / Hudson comedies. I always felt that PT and LCB were as good or better than the Tracy / Hepburn comedies from the late 40's and 50's. The satirical jabs against Madison Avenue in LCB had bite and the gay subtext in PT was pretty daring for its time. I loved se...

That's a great graphic. Very 50's Sci Fi with the BW reaction shot of Doris against the green virus backdrop.

I love the dark humor of this.

Re: Chatting about Doris...

We're under lock down too. I live in the Kansas City metro where the number of cases is starting to rise quickly. We just learned that we know the family of the first person who died in our area. That news was hard to take.

Has anyone been bidding on Doris items online?

Stay safe everyone.

No official announcement about the LA events yet but in view of yesterday's news, I suspect they will be canceled. We just have to take a wait and see approach, but non-essential air travel is questionable at this point. Julien's has posted all of the 1,190 items up for sale. You can view them here....
