I read on the IMDB site, that Todd Starke who plays Tobey Martin died in a motorcyle accident in 1983, he was just 22 years old.

I read that too Karen.That is so sad. Todd was such a cute likable kid on the show.I'm sure that was not mentioned intentionally in the bonus features.

Looking Good!

Interestingly in Caprice when the man that was trying to tape Doris's spy confession he said, " This will make a great reality show. put it on Tuesday Nights!" Funny that was before reality shows and the nexy year The Doris Day Show was on Tuesday nights till then switched to Monday nights for the remainder of the show.

Fran Ryan was replaced at about the time, that she became Mrs. Ziffel on Green Acres. Maby she decided to quite her contract and work for Filmways instead. I don't know.

"The UK only got to see 26 episodes of the 128 made and had to wait until 1973 to see them. The show was broadcast on ITV from 9th July 1973 until 12th February 1974."

28 shows for the first season and I think the number of shows per season dropped the remaining four seasons.

I think I recall that Doris and Fran didn't get on that well. At the time, there was a big spread in one of the movie rags about this. It was an interview with Fran, and showed a picture of Doris in a "moo moo" and Fran and Fran's son. He had come by the studio and wanted his picture taken with Doris. So it was arranged. Fran was not happy that Doris did it in a "moo moo". She talks exptensively about the distance that came between she and Doris and then, one day, she was fired. That's as I remember it some 36 years later!
Fran Ryan always reminded me of Marjorie Maine. A tame version of her. I think Fran's performance on this show was rather stiff and labored, but then, she didn't really have time to settle in.
If I were casting that show, I would have cast Alice Ghostly as the maid. What a riot! Or even Mary Wicks, Doris' buddy for years.
Well, hindsight is 20/20.

Doris was first!

Doris was palying a single Mom a year before Mary Tyler Moore came onto the scene with her show and Doris did the hat thing in the opener, also before Mary flung her hat in the air!

Thanks jboy4da, for that info. on Fran Ryan. Your right, there wasn't much chemistry between Doris and Fran Ryan on the screen. It's hard to believe that Doris Day would fire Fran Ryan because of a personal dislike and not because of her lack of performance but thats my idealistic thinking about Doris Day. I think Mary Hicks would have been a hoot for the replacement.

OPPS! Mary Wicks...not Hicks :D


Mary Wicks

How many DD movies was Mary Wicks? I know On Moonlight Bay, By The Light of The Silvery Moon, I'll See You In My Dreams, and It Happened To Jane. Any others?

Mary Wicks

by Pam~
Betty, I think those were the only D.D movies that Mary Wicks were in.


Mary Wickes

Since we are speaking about Mary Wicks I jumped to Episode 16- The Buddy-aired February 4. 1969 which features Dear Mary Wickes from so many DD films.-With Doris away, Buck, Leroy and the boys find thmselves at the mercy of an old female Marine who takes charge.
