Not Miriam Nelson. Good observation about her cameo in "Pillow Talk," though.

Not Tony Randall. Interesting bit of trivia about his Tony award nomination, though.

Good going, Renie -- Cagney is correct, as are all 3 film titles.

Thank you, thank you. Since none of you are here to do so, I just patted myself on the back. That was a tough quiz I thought. If none of our latest responses had been right, I was getting ready to look up Mary Wickes as a possibility.

And, here's another one for you. May or may not be tough. In what movie did Doris' costar ask, "Have you really been away?" Doris' reply was, "Sure. I went to Chicago to visit the Lincoln Park Zoo!" Hint: Think of beer bottles in the kitchen. I was born and raised in Chicago, before I moved to Indiana, and that zoo was one of my favorite places to visit. I'm sure that's why I remember this line so well.

It's from "Pajama Game" and the question was asked by John Raitt. (Always liked Raitt's voice. He and my father had the same rehearsal pianist.)

Renie, how did the Calamity Jane version of Chicago strike you when you saw it? (Not that we saw much of it but it was still featured.)

Here is a new quiz. Some of the answers will be easy. The apple growers of the world must have loved Doris Day for her use of apples in so many of her movies. Can you name four films where apples were prominently displayed, or were part of the script? This is all from memory, so there may be more than four films involved.

Musiclover: You are right about the quotes being from John Raitt and Doris in the Pajama Game.

Webmaster: I just spent over an hour writing what I thought was a clever response to your question about Calam's impressions of Chicawgee versus reality, clicked on submit and it plum disappeared. Do yo have any idea about where it might be hiding?

Texas, just two come to mind at the moment -- "On Moonlight Bay" and "Pajama Game." Will have to think harder about the others.

I'm sure there are apples in Young at Heart - and possibly in The Thrill of it all.

Renie, re disappearing posts, I've had that too, a real pain as you just can't be bothered to write it all again. It's some kind of software glitch and it's happened to me elsewhere as well, Sometimes if you click the back button you can find it but that's probably too late now. For the future, if you do a long post do a quick copy of the text before you click Submit, you can either paste it into a text file but it should also be in your computer's memory (clipboard) until you copy something else so you can re-post if something goes wrong.

Perhaps do it again when you have time, would love to read it. Bryan

Tex:

Another "apple" movie is My Dream Is Yours. The first night that Doris stays with Eve Arden, deja vue from our prior posts, they go to bed in their respective twin beds and Doris keeps Eve awake with her loud crunching as she eats an apple. That's when Eve puts the pillow over her head to ward off the noise. Sound familiar?

Bryan:

Good idea about copying a long post before submitting. OK. I'll do this one over. May not be until the weekend.

As I was typing the first one, I thought of something funny that you as a Brit should appreciate about Chicawgee, as Calam would say. In the late 1950's, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip came to visit Chicawgee on their yatch (sp?) via the St. Lawrence Seaway and Great Lakes. It was a big deal at the time. Mayor Dailey escorted them around the whole day and he spoke terrible Chicawgee speak. When the Royal couple was leaving, he said to them, "Next time ya come, be sure and bring da kids." And this was on national TV!

So, Bryan, we now have Doris eating an apple with her head under the pillow to muffle the noise so she doesn't keep Eve Arden awake. Right? Just checking.

Didn't know about the Queen visiting Chicawgee - searched for some pics, here's a few:

I think you've got one of the best songs written about a city - kind of a tie with New York, New York.

Regarding "apples" "My Dream is Yours" is correct which was the easiest. Also "Pajama Game" and "On Moonlight Bay" are also correct. I had forgotten about "On Moonlight Bay," so that still leaves two more to go, and one is a toughie.

As an aside, I searched for doris day + apples and discovered this quote from her " "If men were apples, I'd go to the barrel and pick the rotten one." !!!

Back to the quiz...
What about Teacher's Pet? Apple for the teacher and all that.

I've just remembered :idea:

She ate an apple in Move Over Darling - when she was Eve on the desert island.

Bryan, your mention of the song "My Kind of Town (Chicago Is)" reminded me that its composer, Jimmy Van Heusen, wrote at least 3 songs that Doris recorded early in her career ("It Could Happen to You," "Darn That Dream," and "Imagination"), as well as "High Hopes," which was one of the tracks on her 1964 "With a Smile and a Song" studio album. Such a talented songwriter.

I assumed we were talking about the other Chicago song...Chicago, Chicago, that toddlin' town,,,,,,,,,,I guess to connect this with Doris, it should be Chicawgee. I'm pretty sure Frank Sinatra recorded this one. How about Doris?

Actually, I was thinking about that one, but the other one is good too! I forgot there were two songs.

So Tex, is Move Over Darling right?

Ah, you two were thinking of the Fred Fisher song "Chicago"! Sinatra recorded both "Chicago" songs, but as far as I know Doris didn't record either of them.

Yes Webmaster, "Move Over Darling" is correct--the Garden of Eden scene when "Adam" picks an apple for "Eve." That leaves one from my list. I do not recall "Teacher's Pet" having an association with an apple. As I said this last one is a toughie. One hint--you do not actually see an apple in this film.

Tex:

I don't believe I found your "toughie" but, I found some more apples. In Pillow Talk, there's a bowl of apples and tangerines on the breakfast bar in Jan's apartment. And, even though I'll See you in My Dreams is in black and white, you can tell that there's a bowl of apples on the kitchen table in the apartment of Gus Kahn and his mother.

Great observations, Renie. The apples in "I'll See You In My Dreams" went into apple struddles Gus's mom was preparing. But those are not the apples I have in mind. One more hint--Doris's character in the film was afraid the apple would be eaten.

This is a tough one! You might have to give us a few more clues.

What year did it come out, for example! :lol: Or maybe some obscure fact about the film?

Here are a few more clues on the mystery apple. The film was released in the early 1960's, and the apple was part of a 'decoration' in a remodeling project. As I mentioned earlier, you never see the apple.
