Thank you to Bryan and Ania for this celebratory Doris Day banner. I love the photo and the warm and welcoming golden shades of colour. The balloons and confetti create a joyous mood for the his holiday season.

Happy New Year!

Fine banner, Ania and Bryan. Brings to mind the title of Doris's album "Bright and Shiny."

Happy New Year to all the forum members.

New year is the time to bid farewell to the old Year
And welcome the coming year.
It is the time to forget and get past memories
That are no longer useful or worth pondering upon.
Let’s forget and forgive.
Happy New Year.

Thank you Bryan, I can be part of this forum!💕 Thanks guys!💕
Ania
I LOVE YOU DORIS♥

Hi all,

Very funny banner, don't so crazy about the film, but there are a lot of photo's around where there is fun between Doris, Richard Widmark, Gene Kelly.

That was the idea! :wink:

Thanks for the extra photos, Peter. I think I'm in the minority as someone who liked The Tunnel of Love - I found it quite funny!


Image

Director Gene Kelly with his leading ladies, Elisabeth Fraser, Gia Scala and Doris Day.

Gene Kelly’s years at MGM came to a close with his direction of The Tunnel of Love, which was the final film in his contract. He had been looking for more opportunities to direct and new MGM chief (and Kelly fan) Benny Thau needed someone to tackle The Tunnel of Love, so it was a beneficial collaboration for both of them. But there were conditions. Thau stipulated that Kelly had to make the film in black and white, using only one primary set, shoot it in just three weeks and for a cost of less than $500,000.

Kelly succeeded, bringing The Tunnel of Love in on time and within the budget. Yet, it didn’t perform well at the box office, for reasons which Kelly later revealed in The Films of Gene Kelly: Song and Dance Man:
"This is no criticism of Richard Widmark, who is one of the finest film actors we have and who actually started his stage career playing light comedic parts. It’s simply that the public fixes an impression of an actor, they accept him in a certain guise and they don’t like him to stray too far from it. Widmark had established himself in serious material and they weren’t prepared to accept him in this light, sexy part. The public creates type-casting, not the actors, unfortunately.” - Gene Kelly

Yes, there wasn't much sex in it for the concept! Jack Lemmon would have been better as a co-star.

Very funny banner. I got more laughs out of it than I did the film.

Why Doris agreed to do this movie remains a mystery to me, after starring in a series of top shelf films that were commercial and critical successes. I suppose the failure of Tunnel and Jane put her in the position of needing a hit film and fortunately she chose Pillow Talk as her comeback. So it all worked out in the end.
