I didn't watch it on TV last night because I ordered the set with these movies in it, and I got an email from amazon that it has been shipped!!! I'll watch these movies very soon! :D

Isn't it good though to strive? And we all should strive to be as positive [and respectful] as Doris Day: a truly insperational lady.

And...WHERE are the Doris Day fan clubs..........in Britain!

And with whom does Doris Day have frequent phone and letter correspondance? The British Doris Day Fan Clubs.

So much for "luckier in America"!!!!

I watched "April in Paris" when it was on, even though I ordered the new set it's on. And yes I've seen the really cute commercial for the dvd set. Whenever it comes on I hush anyone else in the room so I can hear it. :mrgreen:
~ Have a sunny DAY!! ~

That's so funny sunnyDAY! As I said, I love the commercial. When it came on I made everyone hush too. I was so happy! :D It's funny how the little things at least for me can really make my day!

Samantha, don't be so ruff on yourself. I do think your becoming a lot more postive :)
I hope the dvds do come out in your dvd region , so you can see them.
It's a wonderful day for Doris Day <3

Hi... I was just looking through these posts and wanted to let you know that i bought a DVD player that allows me to switch between regions. I ended up bying some region 2 DVD's by mistake and went to an electronics store thinking getting a player that switches would be easy. It wasn't... they looked at me like I was trying to pirate movies or something, but I found a DVD player that had no region listed. It was only about $50.00. I asked them if I could watch region 2 DVD's on it and they told me that they couldn't disclose that information (apparently it's a hush hush thing). Well, I got it home and it only played region 1... so I called the help number and they gave me a code to enter in order to switch between regions. When I get home tonight I can look at the brand and share it with you tomorrow if you would like.

I believe it is a "Coby"... it was the only one I coulf find without a globe on it (depicting the region). Hey... littlepinetree, I see that you live in Austin. I got it at the Fry's at the intersection of Mopac and Parmer. They won't tell you anything there about changing the codes at the store. You have to call the Coby company directly when you get it home and then they will send you an e-mail telling you how to change it. It is really easy... and worth it.

Britain is what I should have said, thank you for correcting me.
I'm a world traveler, so I do know this stuff. The wrong word just slipped out. It can happen to us humans sometimes.
On ebay, I've seen movies on DVD like Midnight Lace from Britain. That is not on DVD in the USA. However, I just bought it used on VHS, so that's better than nothing.
Beverly, I do have Frys in Austin. I'll take a look there. Thank you! :D

Well you guys have Midnight Lace and The Ballad of Josie on DVD, which we don't have over here in America. And you guys have had Tea for Two out for a while, I believe. So there's some things you get that we don't. :(

Back to TCM...

TCM used to air the Doris Warner Bros movies quite often. It's where I first saw Tea for Two, West Point Story, On Moonlight Bay, By the Light of the Silvery Moon and Lullaby of Broadway. I love the end number in Lullaby of Broadway. Everytime I think to myself "and they said she'd never dance again"

I had a notification a couple of days ago that this box set had been dispatched to me - I forgot I (pre) ordered it!

I don't have a problem with 'Regions' - nobody need have - a lot of modern DVD players will play any Region anyway and if they don't you just need some simple software to make a DVD in your own Region. Most computers have a built in 'make a DVD' facility. (I use Nero) And Magic DVD copier - you can download a free trial here:

Looking forward to seeing Starlift!

Nice to know about that webmaster. Thanks!
I've never seen Starlift, and heard good things about it.
Can't wait to see it from my box set! I should receive it today! :D

Me neither LPT - I read that Doris' part was only about 20 minutes (can't be true, surely, as she has top billing?) so I might upload some of that section for people to view online on my other site (not YouTube) as it's so rare - before they buy of course. But I'll say to the judge that no one could download it and it was only done for promotional reasons - or I'll take the Fifth. :lol:

Samantha. if you're a really good girl, I might help you out. :wink:
