Howard, yes, to clarify things, I was referring to the Kaufman book, not that other piece of *&%$.

I enjoy "Young At Heart" for sentimental reasons (blatant song cue :roll: ), but I wouldn't rate it among my Top 10 Doris films. The story was already old hat at the time it was released and Sinatra's refusal to die undercut the dramatic impact significantly. I wish Doris and Frank had found another film to star in together and it's a shame they only sang a few bars together on "You, My Love" at the end of the film. But it's a sweet movie and the actors make it feel as if they are a real family.

The only way to get a smile out of Barney, is to paint one on his image on the gingerbread man. :roll:

Barney replies, "You got me grinning like an idiot"
PS. Was disappointed in his attempt to kiss her, again he needed to take lessons from Alex. :wink:

Better he kissed her on the cheek with all that chain smoking! :)

He looks a bit underweight there, doesn't he? Maybe he did in the whole film, I just noticed it more in that clip.

Adore the banner- love those 1950s American kitchens- they still work today - for me! Fabulous!

I have a soft spot for Young at Heart- it introduced the public to the DD Look of the 1950s really- that short hair, drindle dresses - Howard Shoup did her clothes in this and Doris wore his stuff a lot off screen too.

Yes, missed opportunity re- not having DD and FS duet more in the film- probably a lot to do with copyright and studio control re- releases of songs and Marty trying to get the rights for the songs for their publishing company. - Isn't that what led to Frank having Marty banned from the set?

That's always been my suspicion, Jas. Marty probably wanted Doris to sing "Young at Heart," but that song absolutely belonged to Frank.
Like Irene Dunne done.

I remember David Kaufman told me that Warners had allowed him access to all the production notes on the filming of Young at Heart. He read me some of it, lots of really interesting stuff about Doris & Frank - I really wanted a copy and he seemed open to the idea - but I wasn't pushy enough! (Memo to self, must be more pushy when required.) :)

Speaking of missed vocal opportunities ...

One of my many Doris fantasies was for Doris to have done at least one more television special with Frank and Ella Fitzgerald as her special guests I wanted the show to open with two or three Doris solos; followed by a Frank solo and then the two of them singing a couple of songs together: then an Ella solo or two, followed by Doris and Ella dueting together. The finale could have been all 3 of them together in front of a 60 piece orchestra doing a tribute to Duke Ellington or maybe the Gershwin's, Cole Porter or Rogers & Hart songbooks. Of course, Doris would reappear at end to thank both of them and perform a final closing number.

Oh well, we can't everything, can we?

Michael- that [utopia] special would be heaven indeed.

I would have liked DD to have Sarah Vaughan as a guest too and her fellow Ohio girl Rosie Clooney!

Hey guys, what about adding Andy Williams to the mix also. I know Doris and Andy use to live close to each other, and would meet when they were both starting out, and Doris would sing a little with Andy and his brothers, they even when they both made it big, recorded under the same record label, (Columbia Records) It is a shame as well as they both sang, and as popular as they were, they never made any records together, you think Marty could be the reason behind this also?

Off the top of my head: Doris and Andy are quite similar in some ways - not enough contrast. You need opposites on a certain level (salt & pepper). That's why Doris & James Cagney were so great together, Trying to think of a similar vocal opposite, or different enough, who would work? (Although having said that she and Gordon MacRae and Howard Keel sounded good together.) What about... wish I could think of someone... :) Ray Charles? No, too far out. Mario Lanza? Too high. Ideas? She, like Frank, was more of a solo singer so hard to see her teamed up.

Dean Martin?

Tony Bennett, maybe? Their all-too-brief duet on her T.V. show in late 1970 was quite nice, I thought.
