Paul- I send the good luck wishes for your Mayorship [is there such a term] aspirations.

Re the book- well I'd be first in the queue - on -line- wherever, to purchase that.


Good luck with it all and please keep the fabulous snippets of information coming.

Paul, you must be incredibly busy these days with speeches, glad-handing, etc. The very best of luck to you, Mr. Mayor!

As for the book, oh my, it sounds like a dream come true. Looking forward to that!
Like Irene Dunne done.

Hello Paul,

Good luck in all your projects... great ambitions for a great man I think!

Love the thought of a new book with detailed information. Hope you'll take some time for her legacy in music too. She's so great.

Keep us informed!

Paul- Thanks for sharing such exciting news about a new project on Doris' legendry work. I wonder if there are any notations on the manuscripts. It will be of great interest to all Doris' fans from around the world.

My very best wishes to you for a successful outcome on your mayoral race..

Thank you again for your factual and thought-provoking posts. They are a pleasure to read.

One of the amazing things about Paul - and there are many - is his vast and incredibly detailed repository of Doris knowledge. He has absolute recall and he is highly organized. I look forward to whatever he publishes because it will be respectful and chock full of things we haven't heard before.

I especially loved O'Hara's films with John Wayne. If I calculate correctly, this leaves Doris as the oldest living major leading lady from the studio era, followed (in order) by Debbie Reynolds, Kim Novak, and Shirley MacLaine.

Beautifully said Jas.
Maureen O'Hara will live in my heart whenever I watch the wonderful Miracle On 34th Street.
I have always thought Maureen was the original Scarlett O'Hara. She would have been magnificent in the role.

You can't stop Betty White!! She's now on a series called Bones while her chum Doris remains quietly doing her beloved animal work. Doris still rocks and sparkles on the cover of Closer Magazine recently. Much abuzz even today! Can you imagine a Movie about her life and times? Much hollywood history from the great train wreak that started her singing with bands to her movie stardom and beyond. It could be a blockbuster in the right hands.

Picture Of Doris and Rock from the Best Friends series in Closer magazine about Rock's final days. Sydney Wood says Doris was aware of the rumors about Rock being gay but he doesn't think it mattered to her. Of course it didn't they had an unconditional love for each other. Judge Judy is on the cover.

I think to the list of Golden Age stars still alive, you could reasonably add Jane Powell. The 86 year old actress-singer spent some 10 years at MGM where movies were specifically designed around her talents and she was headlined in many of them.

The UK version of The Enquire at least has a positive story on DD this week with a nice pic from her 90th birthday- although the article itself is trash as it is along the lines of "Legend Doris Day prays for her friend Mary-Tyler -Moore" and the article says MTM is dying and DD is praying for her [having lost her son too] and next year DD may be praying for the deceased MTM- the rag also has Cher and Ryan O'Neill dying.

While I take anything it says with a big pinch of salt, it is nice [for once] that DD is not being portrayed in such terms!

America's all time Sweetheats Doris and Mary Tyler Moore. The BIG and small screen single Ladies of the last century. Doris perfected it in Pillow Talk and later on the last two seasons of her TV series. The classy single Lady dateing several men happily. Only on her TV series she didn't have to end up married.

Just goes to show - 'Out of sight is not out of mind.' The name Doris Day mean $$$ to the tabloid media. Doris is one of the very few whose name is still magical and, like a magnet, will get attention after many years out of the public eye. Speaks volumes for Doris that she can still capture an audience after walking off the stage many, many years ago. We are the benefit of this. Who knows where she will appear next in the media? I say, 'keep them coming..."
Looking forward to the Paul Brogan story about Doris with all of his insight. Should be a best seller! Have a great day everyone!

Mickey Rooney has passed at 93. He and Doris were on a call in talk show when Ronald Reagan died. I believe it was Rush Limbard? Not sure. Around 2004.

Yesterday I read in our local paper that Debbie Reynolds didn't appear to receive her honorary Oscar. Does anyone know -- is she ill?
