WWYWTLWO never got a DVD release and it is virtually impossible to find now.

Here’s what IMBD says about it:

“Along with Remains to Be Seen (1953), Flame and the Flesh (1954) and The Subterraneans (1960), this is one of very few films from the mid-century MGM library that appears to be lost, outside of privately circulated, poorly reproduced bootleg copies.”

Just saw this on Facebook.

Martin Woodsford, who ran an International Fan Club based in the UK, is writing a book about Doris. I don't know him personally or know anything about the book.

There is an article in the mirror.co.uk dated May 25-2019 by Nicola Small called"Doris Day's out - of- the- blue phone call to superfan led to most unlikely friendship.

Exclusive: Lifelong fan Martin Woodsford looks back at the friendship he had with one of Hollywood's finest actresses.

The article describes Martin as a twenty- one year old receiving a call from Doris Day at the time he was setting up a fan club for her. At the time he was a trainne nurse who is now 47.

He credits Doris with saving his life revealing he came from an abusive home. She always replied to his letters
He is quoted as saying , " I think she wanted to treat others as she wanted to be treated herself".


There is a second article dated July 2-2019, in The Cowbridge GEM with the headline, " Doris Day Provides Season Finale for Cinema Group".

Martin Woodsford hosted an in-depth talk on Doris' life at the Rhoose Community Cinema. It was a packed audience. Martin was the editor of the International Doris Day Fan Club magazine . They screened Doris' film Calmity Jane.

There's a new copy of DD's best-selling biography, "Her Own Story" for sale on E-bay. If you've never read it, you should. It's quite good!
Like Irene Dunne done.

Supporting Actress Favourites:

Thelma Ritter
Hattie McDaniel
Eve Arden
Gloria Grahame


It is difficult to believe that Thelma Ritter did not win the Academy Award for one of her five nominations. She should have at least been given an honorary award for her stellar work.

Michael,

Thanks for the information on the sale. Have you heard anything about what happened to the dogs and cats Doris cared for?

I am sure they found good homes but I have not read any reports.

No, actually I have not heard or read anything about her animals but I'm confident that Doris left clear instructions for their care going forward.

Johnny, in case you missed it, please read this thread about dear Bryan.

This is a duplicate of the message I just posted in the Sad News thread. I wanted to be sure that everyone saw the latest information about the migration to the British Library as well as the new Facebook Group that Jacques is setting up in Bryan's honor.


Hello everyone,

Jacques is moving forward with migrating the forum to the British Library archives. He expects to have a timeline soon and I will share that with you as soon as he has a firm date.

He is also creating a new Doris Day Facebook Group in Bryan's honor and he asked me to collect the names and contact info of forum members who are interested in joining the new group. I think the best and most secure way to do that is for you to email me if you are interested in becoming a member. I have agreed to serve as an administrator on the new page and will be assisting Jacques with setting it up.

Please email me at [email protected] if you are interested.

Thanks,
Michael
