Yes, the one with Marty is great - shows how happy they were at one time.

This one is very touching as well:

Marty looks a bit like John Ratit there.

You posted this one before puck, I just found it on a search for Doris & John Raitt:

Re: With Six You Get Eggroll house 2009

John M wrote:Since the Toluca Lake house is literally just around the corner from the house they used in With Six You Get Eggroll, I swung around to get a pic or two of that house today. It's being rennovated in a MAJOR way. Here it is today, alongside a pic I posted here of it a couple of years ago, when it still looked just like it did when Doris filmed a few scenes in front of it.

And, lastly, both houses are but about a few blocks from Warner Bros., so I snapped a pic of Gate #2, which was featured in a scene in It's A Great Feeling. Not changed too much.

Oh nooo. I like the WSYGE house the way it was! Its such a kick that it was actually 4248, like in the movie. Wonder if it was really on Myrtle Drive?!!

Great pics. Especially the ones with Marty. I also love the one with John Raitt. Terrific!

And pics of Doris wearing my favorite outfit from Pillow Talk!! I LOVE that dress and the jewelry. Too bad you hardly get to see it the film since it's mostly hidden under the coat or the table.

Jake, no, the W6YGE house is on a street named Clybourn, not Myrtle. :wink:

Marty does look a lot like John Raitt in that picture. I love the pictures of Doris and Marty in happier times.

The first actual photograph of Doris (not a studio generated one) I received in 1960 from one of Doris's relatives in Cincinnati - it was of Doris and Marty sitting in her uncle's living room with an aunt and uncle either right before or right after the premiere of I think she said JULIE that was held in Cincinnati ....I cherished that photo as it came from her relative - someone with the last name of Welz....had it for years....unfortunately, my little Missy,at the time a 3-1/2 schnauzer, - chewed it up about 2 years ago. I was sick about it, but couldn't blame Missy. I had just gotten her and didn't know that she loved to chew on photos. So folks, take note - keep everything under lock and key when it comes to Doris!

FANTASTIC photos everyone. I loved the photo of Terry sitting on his dads lap, while Marty was reading the newspaper. I always love to see the happy photos of Doris and Marty .
John thank you so much for taking the pictures of the T L house. I have to agree with Megan and those who said that they like that house better than the Beverly Hills house. No comparision in my opinion . Wonder why they would want to move to Beverly when the home that they had in T L was so pretty ? :?

Suzie~
Guess you are not from the L.A. area. LOL!!!

The answer as to why D/M moved to Beverly Hills is probably location. Toluca Lake was okay when Doris was working for Warner Bros. because it was only blocks from the studio and that studio was Doris' home base until her contract expired.

Then they moved to Beverly Hills because that's where most of the Hollywood stars were living at that time and it is more central to all the other studios that Doris would be working at after she was released from Warners.

My guess is that other people who are familiar with L.A. like Howard, and John (sorry for leaving someone out) can tell you that that trek "Over The Hill" to get to Los Angeles is on a windy road up and back with lots of traffic in morning and evening. Or....one could take the lovely freeway to get from the Valley south to L.A. to the studios. I might be wrong on this but I think only Warners and Universal were in the Valley. The other studios were in Hollywood (Paramount) and West L.A. (MGM).

Living in Beverly would cut at least 1/2 hour out of that drive.

About the size of the house. As John said, they would buy a huge house in TL for next to nothing - not in Beverly.

I too prefer the TL house - but understand entirely about location, location, location!

Didn't Terry say too in one of the documentaries that Doris picked the BH house - for the gardens - not necessarily the house itself?

PS:
Thanks from me too for going to the trouble to take the house pics and post.

I was just bidding on this photo on eBay, but it eventually went for over £50, so went beyond my limit. I think it's a great photo. The write-up on eBay just said that it was a cinema in London and it looks to be the Empire at Leicester Square to me - one of the two central cinema's where many film premieres are held.

What a great, historic even, photo, Doris' first film in London, re-named "It's Magic" as the song was known and a hit over here. That cinema is still there in the centre of the West End - it's been refurbished since 1949 of course but the outside shape is still roughly the same. Amazing photo - "Introducing Doris Day - The New Song Sensation" - she was given star treatment from the beginning - I make that 60 years ago this year. She's come along way. Thanks for that, Michele.

It's a great photo, isn't it? :) I definitely think it has historic relevance - that's what attracted me to it. I only wish I'd had the funds to go beyond £50 because it would have been a wonderful photo to frame. I only hope whoever won it appreciates the true value of it and preserves it well.

Is it the Empire in Leicester Square?? It has features that look really familiar, but LS is pedestrianised, but I'm not sure if it's always been that way.

What a great photo even if it is only a copy. I've never seen a picture of Doris on a marquee! What a treat!
Thanks for this.

It looks very much like the Empire to me too, Michele, here's some blurb about it that went under the photo above as it is today, which seems to fit with the photo.
"The original Empire Theatre opened with a production of 'Chilperic' which was a 'Grand Musical Spectacular' by Florimund Herve in 1884. Just three years later it had been become 'The Empire Theatre of Varieties,' reverting back to The Empire Theatre in 1898 before finally closing and being demolished in January 1927.

The second Empire Theatre opened as a cinema in November 1928, although it still put on occasional ballet and dancing shows before closing in May 1961 after a 76 week run of 'Ben Hur.' (This period would be when "It's Magic" was shown,)

After a major reconstruction, the third incarnation of the Empire Theatre opened in December 1962, and now hosts a cinema and casino."

Thank you Lauren for all of the info on the TL house and the Beverly house. It makes perfect sense now. Like Jas said location location location. Is T L as pretty as Beverly Hills ? I know the $$$$ for a home is way higher. :D

Suzie, as a whole Beverly Hills is much prettier than Toluca Lake. The street with Doris' TL house is quite beautiful, but literally right around the corner is a bit more of a dump. With TL, it all depends on what street you're on. But I'll take TL over BH any day. Less pretentious. In "L.A. parlance," I much prefer the Valley over the Westside.

(Rough online) Translation (from Danish) of the text accompanying the above posters:
Past colorful movie posters on the way into the Danish home

"Mature movie posters have long been fascinating to a small circle of serious collectors. In recent years, however, these face competition from a large and diverse audience, which sees the beautiful lithographed movie poster as exciting and original décor of the dwelling. We are in the borderland between art and kitsch, and it is perhaps just what makes these posters so exciting as decoration. In clear deep color, with enticing dramatic pictures and exciting style created for each poster, hurls the noisy his often politically incorrect message into space. Especially posters from before 1960 are fascinating in design and has not spared the juice in the punch lines, in colorful terms to lure the audience.

Heroes and heroines, villains and their female counterparts are struggling for space on the paper. Stunning scenery, satire, humor and adventure of each type of current in one sitting.

The lithographed posters from before 1960 were printed in relatively small print runs. They traveled with the film from cinema to cinema, and often they were in haste put up with pins and disassembly brutally demolished by one of the many boys who had spare time as assistant. It is relatively rare today to find old posters in good condition, and hunt for them has long since begun. That they are interesting for film freaks is obvious, but exciting it is that these kitsch, colorful "past monsters" of today is more than hot on both dorm room as the minimalist designer decorated living room of the B&B facility."

They are great, aren't they? Real pop art, I think my favourites are April in Paris, Tunnel of Love, The Man Who Knew Too Much and Lucky Me, If you go to the website and click again on them they are even larger than the size on here so they would make nice posters.
