Johnny, you mentioned David Niven - apparently he was upset and insecure during filming as he had separated from his wife, Hjordis:

Image
Doris Day was already a household name in America when Please Don't Eat the Daisies was released; her reputation as a gifted comedic actress had been confirmed in previous films like Teacher's Pet (1958), and Pillow Talk (1959) and her persona stayed true to form for Daisies. Yet, while there is an undeniable chemistry between Day and co-star David Niven on-screen, the two actors rarely interacted once the cameras had stopped rolling.

I just came across a story that implies that Niven was considering murdering Hjordis because of her cruelty towards him!!! :shock:

Having read it, I don't believe he did consider murder - but he certainly had good reason to by the sound of it! :lol:

Update: the other side of the coin in this can of worms I seem to have opened: The sex-addict cad:

It goes to show there are always two sides to every story.

Hooray for Hollywood?

Thanks Bryan for all the interesting background information on David Niven. The fact that David and Doris did not have much of an off-set relationship is in contrast with many of her male co-stars. Perhaps Nivin's marital problems and his being fourteen years older than Doris created a distance between them. Niven was 50 and Doris was 36.

David Niven is certainly not up there [for me] when thinking of my fav DD co-stars.

Re the film- I LOVE the apartment and the finished house - I would gladly live in either today - preferably the apartment- another example of Doris' great homes in films and not too over the top as I find her apartments in Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back to be - although they are superb looking.

I've been searching for an observation about Doris once made by director Allan Arkush . . . and finally found it: "Doris Day has a real gift for generating chemistry with all her leading men." The compatible relationship she developed with colleagues behind the scenes somehow translated to the screen.

That's a good quote, Judy. She certainly made David Niven look good in 'Daisies', given all he was going through behind the scenes. I still think they were very good together in this film.

Jas, is this the house you meant?

Looks a bit like The Adams Family there!

Yes Bryan- that's the house [before renovation] - but even more so, I really like the NY apartment in Daisies.

Thanks Johnny - how about the look in this one? :)

Nice review here - extending the quote about Doris posted by Judy:
Doris Day is an actress of rhythms. She has differing modes of performance operation, and depending on the starring (or occasionally, supporting role) vehicle, she can crank it up or tone it way, way down. She uses her inherent wholesomeness as a shield, a way of hiding her substantial sensuality and beaming inner light. She’s often mislabeled as the world’s oldest virgin, mainly because her movie roles had her equal, not underneath, the leading men. In many ways, she is the role model for future actresses, trading femininity for friendliness while never losing the intelligence and spark that made her a star...

Thanks Bryan and Judy for the great article on Doris. I love the opening line: "Doris Day is an actress of rhythms". This description seems so appropriate since Doris is a great singer as well as a great actress.
This Please Don't Eat The Daisies banner brings to mind having breakfast with my older brothers. I once got into an argument with my oldest brother over a blue cereal bowl. I wouldn't eat my cereal if I didn't have the blue bowl. We both grabbed it and it smashed on the floor. Green became my new favouite colour.

Just an observation on David Niven's tie: With all the expertise in Hollywood, the tip of his tie should be in line or touching his belt buckle, not hanging below - my English father taught this to my brothers and I when we were very young. He also taught us to tie a Windsor knot. It is a small detail, but it has stayed with me when watching films or today's political figures on television.
It is amazing what memories a Doris Day banner brings to mind.
Thanks again Bryan!
Johnny

Love this striking banner. Doris has a look of steely determination on her face. The shape of the mirror on her vanity table with all the lights softens her image.I have not seen this photo before.
Thank you Bryan and Michael.

Thanks Tybear, She was amazing in that role, wasn't she? :D

It's hard to believe that Ruth Etting and Calamity Jane were played by the same actress! :shock:

The composition of this Love Me or Leave Me banner shows Doris as the real Ruth Etting and in the reflection with Marty Snyder, the Ruth he imagines her to be.
I find the arc of the mirror on the dressing table symbolic of the arc in Ruth and Marty's relationship reflected in the mirror. The lights showcase the angst on her face while he hovers over her.
Thanks Bryan for such beautiful Love Me Or Leave Me banners.

Great banner Bryan, and " Love or leave me" is just an amazing movie, a musical, based on real story about Ruth, one she never did before, and it turner out to be one of the best musicals ever. And she did a marvelous job, acting perfect, as always.

You are entirely welcome Bryan. Youre correct in your observation-those 2 roles are such total opposites. That is what makes her the ultimate entertainer. There was no limit to her amazing abilities and talent. She is and always will be number 1.

Thank you so much!

Tybear
