Mary Anne, thanks for the link to your article, and most of all (in case I haven't said so already), thankyou for your excellent book! I reread it again recently and always so appreciate your insights. Such an important book in documenting a unique facet of Doris' life.

I was impressed by Doris’ grandfather’s white bakery rack that Doris placed bread on as a young girl when she worked in his store. She kep it in each of her homes and used it for her sweaters
I also love this item... Oh, to be wealthy enough to bid! It would be great if her grandson kept it, such a Kappelhoff family heirloom.

Thanks for this link, Michael. I made some notes during the auction and was interested that the 4 Golden Globes combined fetched nearly as much as the Model A car. Doris's partner at Cypress Inn, Denny Levett, owns a number of collectible cars, which led me to wonder whether he might've been the highest bidder on the Model A. These auction proceeds will certainly help a lot of 4-leggers!

What a weekend! Am sure most of you tuned in to watch some of the Julien Auction over the weekend - it was interesting to see ALL the items up for grabs. Just wonder where did Doris store all of these? Must have had some vaults somewhere...when I lived with her, the closet in the den, which was my office, was filled with boxed awards. Doris was not a show off and had all of them closeted. But don't you just wonder where on earth did she have all this nostalgia stored over the past nearly 50 years. I knew the man who gave her the old car - and it sold well. It was just interesting to see everything and I feel sure many items were gifts from fans over the years. I know for sure, # 1080 was from Joan Barr and Joan Yeend and two others from Australia...friend of mine over the years. Joan Y was tuning in last night to see it. Glad the four leggers will get a nice gift....wonder now, what will become of her beautiful home?
Speaking of homes - has anyone checked out her Beverly Hills home on line which is up for sale? I looked at the photos a few weeks ago and was really surprised to see how 'un-Doris' it now is. Very cold and sterile looking, not the colorful, friendly atmosphere that radiated from each room when Doris lived there. As someone said, you would expect Morticia to pop out. Glad I lived there with her in the good old days - sweet memories...have a great week and stay well everyone!

Thank you Michael for the link.

I am so pleased to know the auction was such a success in raising a good deal of money for the Doris Day Animal Foundation. Imagine the number of animals that will benefit from the auction.

I wondered how much money Doris' grandfather's Baker's rack generated.

The comments about Doris' Beverly Hills home are interesting. I understand Doris loved the garden more than the house. I also recall a story about Doris wanting to buy a $600.00 painting while she lived there and Marty said they couldn't afford it. During this time Doris worked non-stop and had little time to enjoy her home.

Thanks Mary Anne for your valuable insights on Doris's life. They are truly appreciated.

I am truly thankful that the auction was a great success especially during this worldwide health crisis.

Be well everyone. 🌈

I was just wondering if Ray Romano is Melcher's illegitimate son. Anyone know? Romano worked with a Rosenthal in the making of "Everyone like Raymond", and with those accents- well, they sound like Rose Marie!

From The Weekly News archives: Chats with the stars from Hollywood, like Doris Day, to TV soap, Coronation Street

Image

From 1955, a fascinating interview with Hollywood legend Doris Day. in London for filming of The Man Who Knew Too Much.
The last two years have been thrilling ones for Doris Day. And the results of the hard work she has been doing, and the fascinating places she has been visiting, all add up to new thrills and enjoyment for the millions who vote her “Queen Of Song.”

She is now just finishing work on The Man Who Knew Too Much, a Hitchcock thriller which may blaze a new trail for Doris.

Hitch told me why he teamed Doris up with James Stewart for his latest suspense epic.

“I saw her years ago in Storm Warning, in which she appeared with Ginger Rogers,” he said. “It was a dramatic role, quite unlike anything she had done up to that time.

“I noted her down as a girl with a future – if she wanted to take it up – as a dramatic actress.

“In The Man Who Knew Too Much she plays the part of a distraught mother – wife of a doctor (James Stewart) – who is searching for her kidnapped son.

“Singing is down to a minimum. She just has to sing a lullaby in the hope that the boy may hear her.

Nice find, Johnny. I recall a brief interview with Kym Karath, in which she commented about how she loved the smell of Doris's perfume when filming "The Thrill of It All."

Speaking of Doris's Perfumes - here is a blog I wrote awhile ago about a very 'special' to me perfume she wore...you can check it out in this blog
www.hawthornepub.com/blog/that-special- ... -the-star/
Still have an empty bottle of it and there is still a 'hint' of her fragrance - yummmmm!

I recall Doris saying in her autobiography that her favourite fragrance was White Shoulders. She said she was asked about this by friends who started wearing it. She decided that in the future she would not tell people the names of her fragrances.

I believe White Shoulders is still on the market.

Johnny, White Shoulders is indeed still on the market. I wear it frequently, but didn't know that it was a favorite of Doris's, too.

Thank you Michael!

The commentary on Romance on the High Seas‘ Blu-Ray cinematography and visual interior shots , “Romance on the High Seas May be the most consistently stunning
Catalog title I’ve seen this year” is really thought provoking.

I have always focused on this film as Doris Day’s impressive debut in the film industry and the sequence of events preceding it.

I had not given much thought to the number of interior shots. It is with great anticipation and interest I look forward to seeing the Blu-Ray edition.

The legacy of Romance on the High Seas and Doris Day singing It’s Magic is unadulterated joy.

Absolutely Perfect! Great News. Romance On The High Seas can be further appreciated. It is truly a delightful film.

I will purchase the Blu-ray edition right away.
On Amazon it listed 13 Doris Day Blu-Ray films.
I would like to see all her 39 films in the Blue-Ray format and made available in a collection.

Presently the only film of Doris’s I do not have is Where Were You When the Lights Went Out? It does not seem to be available on DVD.

Thank you Michael.
Johnny
