Puck, do you know German? It's frequently on German TV, I can hold my eyes open for it if you like?

Marion, I know German, but I don't like that they do talk German.
I want the real movie, but It does't harm to watch it on the German TV, so when you know when they broadcast it, please give me a sign.

I can understand that, I prefer the original as well.

I will let you know when I see it in the programme. Here you could check yourself regularly - on the left side there is a 4-week-preview on films with Doris Day on German speaking TV:

Spion in Spitzenhöschen

is Glass Bottom Boat, not Pajama Game ;-)

And "Ein Pyjama für Zwei" is Lover Come Back

(Got me confused with the English titles at first, too. ;-) But I have actually never seen Pajama Game on German TV.)

Thanks for posting, great to see. Funny, just before she arrived, I was wondering if Honor Blackman would be there, and there she was looking fabulous! She is the same age as Doris and shows how true class can age wonderfully!

I just watched MOD for the first time and needless to say I really enjoyed it!
Actually I'm not that much for remakes, and although the story is predictable it's always a great fun to watch Doris, Thelma and James! No wonder that Thelma was the one, who got the most Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress, but unintelligibly she did never win one.
One of my favourite scenes is "The Swedish Nurse scene". And another I really enjoyed is when she tucks her children in bed. I just love the movies she a couple of songs.
It is remarkable that Doris continued filming inspite of her broke rib! And that she was so professional that you would not even notice she had something broken, if you would not know it.
Eventually I think the hole movie is absolutely cute and worth watching.
Maybe some find these reviews interesting:

REVIEWS FOR MOD:
"Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue is the nature of Move Over, Darling...."-Variety
"Move Over, Darling appears to be straining and shouting for effects that should be natural and contrived"- The New York Times

REVIEWS FOR DD:
"Ellen is a good role for Doris Day. It gives her chances to run the gamut of funny faces, to be deeply hurt, to get raving and fighting mad, to sing a couple of songs. And as no Doris Day movie would be complete without the star's tears, it gives her a chance to cry over the two little daughters who don't recognize the strange lady as their mommy."- New York Daily News
"Miss Day and James Garner play it to the hilt, comically, dramatically and last, but not least (particularly in the case of the former), atheletically."-Variety

When I rented this movie I loved it so much, and I had so much fun watching it. It was awhile ago when I rented the movie and decided to buy it. It came in the mail today! This will be so much fun watching it only for the second time! :D

What a fantastic movie! I have seen most films with Doris by now, but when she looks really happy, with that big smile... it still amazes me. It's just so much warmth, brightness, sweetness... Well, words can hardly describe it. I just love her so much! :D

Also, when she finds out something unpleasant and has that indignant look on her face... priceless! :D
Would you please get off this line!

I agree! Doris has a very special talent for conveying her feelings.

After watching this one again on TCM, I found it fun and entertaining but a bit strained toward the end. This may be the film where things first started to feel a bit stale with her string of successful romantic comedies. The script wasn't as sharp or inventive as Lover Come Back, Pillow Talk or Thrill Of It All.

I enjoy Polly Bergen as an actress but I think they made her character a little too eccentric and ridiculous. Consequently, she's no competition for Doris whatsoever. The contest is over pretty much from the start. Garner tries a bit too hard in some scenes; he was better in Thrill Of It All IMO. Even the ever reliable Thelma Ritter is off her game here. And am I the only person who finds Chuck Connors more revolting than sexy? On the other hand, Don Knotts was terrific as the shoe salesman and I got a kick out Edgar Buchanan as the addled judge.

Doris was great for the most part. I don't know of any other leading actress at the time who could have made the car wash scene as funny and real as she did. She could do extreme slapstick without compromising her appeal as a romantic leading lady. I won't even mention her wayward wig but it deserved its own mention in the cast of characters. Where was the continuity person?

I heard another family story about Doris clothes in Move Over Darling. My sweet Aunt Delia went out and bought a light green suit like the one Doris wears in the scene where she returns after seven years to see her children by the pool.

Aunt Delia told everyone that it was the same suit as Doris wore in the film. The funny part is that she found the wool suit to be unbearable to wear because it was so itchy. Without missing a beat her sister Mary Alice asked her for years where her beautiful Doris Day was and she should wear it more often. Aunt Delia always changed the subject quickly.

Thease are little memories with big lauhgs for the family. Aunt Delia rather fancied herself a style icon. She was incredibly funny and very sweet.

Doris will always have a lot of influence.
