Doris for a day/ in one of her movies

Unread post by suzie »

If you could be doris for just one day and could be her starring in one of her movies only. what movie would you pick ? Id want to be her making pillow talk, that movie was the perfect doris movie in my opinion.Doris said she and the others had a blaste making that film, and you could tell too as they passed their joy on to all of us. :D Thats the comedy, as for her dramatic roles, I think id like to be in TMWKTM with hitchcock.I would have loved traveling to do the location shots. How about you ?

Definitely Pillow Talk for the reasons you mentioned. Close to that would only come GBB.

Other genre...?

Mmmh... I guess LMOLM or CJ if that means I could sing like that. :mrgreen:

I think I'd pick GLASS BOTTOM BOAT simply cause its my favorite movie .. :mrgreen: ... I don't know whether she had fun doing it but it certainly looks like it was fun .. plus I wouldn't mind being kissed by Rod Taylor and all :D As for the dramatic - I agree TMWKTM cause - wow - imagine doing a movie with Hitchcock ... and James Stewart - definitely cool thought !!!

I'd either want to be in The Thrill Of It All or That Touch Of Mink. Now, I know these aren't her best movies, I really like them though. And who would pass up a chance to get to kiss Cary Grant or James Garner??? :lol:

I would want to be in Pillow Talk because I personally think that the script is really good! Also I would die to wear all the clothes she wears in the movie. I love Rock Hudson so it would be wonderful to get to act with him. :D
It's a wonderful day for Doris Day <3

Pillow Talk, for the reasons mentioned! Oh, and for Mr Hudson and to experience the genius of Thelma Ritter at work!

I loved her in Please Don't Eat the Daises and With Six You Get Egg Roll. Guess, because I am the motherly, teacher type. She is so down to earth and beautiful in those two movies. It would be hard for me to pick. I have four kids, myself. If only I could have her figure. :D

Well I would definitely pick Lover Come Back because her name was Carol and that is my favorite movie.
Who wouldn't want to work with Rock and Tony.

The other would be The Thrill Of It All so I could say: "Hello, I'm Beverly Boyer and I'm a pig"
I just loved that part . :lol: :lol:

I'd go for (being a male) the John Rait role in The Pajama Game - then I'd get to kiss her and dance around with her. I think that would be more fun than Rock, who might have been thinking about his latest boyfriend when he kissed her. :)

Okay Bryan I thought you would come back with something about Rock. :roll:

You know back then no one knew and who cares he's was so darn good looking I would have kissed him. I would have never known till many years gone by. :lol:
There sure were a lot of actresses who did kiss him not knowing.
I still like Rock no matter what.

I like Rock too, Carol - what is there not to like? Mamie Van Doren claimed that one night Rock drove her home and made mad passionate love to her so maybe he wasn't as gay as we think. But no matter, he was Doris' best co-star - or one of them.

Well I have never heard that one before with Mame Van Doren, but I'm sure you know more than I do.

I always thought that Doris and Rock would have been a great married couple. I know they were just the best of friends. I will always love Rock and Doris together. They just had the best chemistry together as well as James Garner... what a HUNK!!! :lol: :lol:

For some reason I always finding myself defending Rock when that subject comes up.

Good Question, but it would have to be more than one day. I would like to be Doris in TMWKTM because I would get to be directed by the great Hitchcock, and people would realize that I was a serious actress. I would get to costar with James Stewart, who I adore. Then I would divorce MM on the grounds that he mistreated my son, before he could squander all my money and put me in less than steller films. My second choice would be TTOM. Besides kissing Cary I would let him be photographed on the right. Then I would "accidentally'" knock down Gig Young and give him mouth to mouth resuscitation.

Wow Debbi that would be quite a day.

I love James Stewart but I always thought he was too old to be her husband in that movie. Great Movie though... I loved it!!

And good ol' Mamie claimed Doris Day was a drag and sour. Not the most reliable :? Maybe he figured what the heck, she's been around the block, now's my chance.

Yes, I did hear that Mamie Van Doren did not like Doris....well I think Doris was a lot more classy woman than Mamie. I didn't really care for her (Mamie) too much.

I was watching the biography channel the other day. And there was a Rock Hudson biography on right before a Doris Day one, so I watched it. It said Rock did in fact sleep with woman, because he knew liking men wasn't right. He wanted to want woman, I think he was really making an effort to like them. I guess he thought if he spent enough time with them, he'd end of choosing them over men..

Megan, I think I cannot let this stand uncommented.

It should better be "wasn't considered to be right in those days (and by some people)"

I don't want to provoke a discussion here but I guess (hope) everybody agrees that today's societies are much more open-minded on this subject.
