I'll do it: Arthur Godfrey appeared in two of DD's films. Name them both.

I know the obvious one (AKA, The Spy in Lace Panties!) but not the other one without looking it up.

Here's one that falls into the true or false category. I came across it on Amazon as I was scanning David Brett's book about her.

Image

He said than a source told him that Doris decided to switch parts for Caprice, ie, that Doris decided to play the part that Richard Harris was originally hired to play, so that Harris played the Doris role and she played his, they just changed the sex of the players. (And that they both ended up not being happy with the results).

What do you think? True or false? - and does anyone know for sure?

I think it could be true, those kind of things happen in Hollywood!

(Please don't make any personal comments about David Brett as this is a public forum and he took exception to a comment made about him previously.)

Don't know for sure about that . . . but would like to post a quiz question before I forget it:

About midway through her solo recording career, this multi award-winning composer/lyricist wrote two songs for Doris in successive years, one of which she did not record -- however, the other was a hit single for her. Name the songwriter and those two songs' titles.

Could it be Jay Livingston & Ray Evans (Que Sera, Sera)?

or Hal David and Burt Bacharach (Send Me No Flowers)? (maybe a bit late)

Don't know how we can name songs not published?! :roll: :)

One source I used: http://www.musicvf.com/Doris+Day.art - is it on there?

You are just a year early as far as the two years involved. Both titles are good guesses, though. (Although DD did not record the one song, it was published.) Hint: the songwriter did both the music and lyric for the first song, but just the lyric for the other. And, yes, the song is on the source you used. Happy hunting!

This is very embarrassing, but I just discovered that the source I always consult (which has never failed me before) was wrong this time. DD did, in fact, record both songs. All other "clues" are accurate. Sorry to mislead anyone.

The 'year earlier clue doesn't work for me on that list but a wild guess; is it Richard Adler, Everybody Loves a Lover, and Hey There from The Pajama Game?

Good for you! Adler is correct and so is "Everybody Loves a Lover." The other song he wrote especially for DD, however, was "The Man Who Invented Love," which he added to the original score of "Pajama Game" during rehearsals for the movie and after the death of his co-writer, Jerry Ross. According to my secondary source, the single was not available in general release, but was distributed as a promotional song only to disc jockeys. It wasn't included on the sound track album, either, likely because it didn't make the final cut in the movie. It's a nice song; I wish it had been left in the film.

Oh great - I first thought of The Man Who Invented Love but went for Hey There for some reason! Maybe because it was less associated with DD over other artists and The Man Who Invented Love was released as an extra on later Pajama Game DVDs.

I have an item for the quiz. As you can see, I'm from Indiana. In what three movies was Doris Day's character identified as being from Indiana?

I recall that "On Moonlight Bay" had Indiana as the home state, so it follows that "By The Light Of The Silvery Moon" would also be the other Indiana locale.

On Moonlight Bay and By the Light of the Silvery Moon are correct. To my knowledge, It's a Great Feeling is not. Correct me if I'm wrong on that. It would be #4. There is another one that I know is correct, which I believe was only mentioned one time in the entire film in passing. The reason I noticed it was because DD's character and her family were said to be from Indianapolis, where I live. And, the place where her husband worked does not exist in real life.

Fun question! I believe the third one is "The Man Who Knew Too Much." Also, it's an indirect reference, but in "Teacher's Pet" one line of dialogue describes Joel Barlow Stone as "a hard-headed Hoosier," from which one could surmise that his daughter (DD's character) was also from Indiana.

Right you are, Musiclover, about The Man Who Knew Too Much! Jimmy Stewart's character was a doctor at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Indianapolis and there's never been a hospital here by that name. Nevertheless, I've done more than a little wishful thinking over the years about what it would be like to have Doris Day living in the same city as me, and perhaps just down the street......... And thanks for reminding me about the Indiana connection in Teacher's Pet, which I had forgotten.
