Excellent! Thank you, Paul. I can see myself referring to this often - and pointing people who email me questions I can't always answer to it. It also compliments the great work that Peter Flapper has done on her recording career. Ralph McKnight used to say, when he was writing the film reviews, that the website should be a source for researchers so thanks again for contributing to that goal.

So....what the polls have NOT said, and I have been saying all along: DORIS DAY WAS IN THE TOP 25 EVERY YEAR SINCE HER FIRST MOVIE IN 1948...AND SHE STAYED ON THE QUIGLEY POLL THROUGH HER LAST FILM IN 1968, WITH FOUR YEARS AT NO.1 (A RECORD) 10 YEARS IN THE TOP 10, AND 20 YEARS IN THE TOP 25. NOT A BAD RECORD!!!

I agree completely. What I have been trying to do, often without success, for years is to change the misperception that Miss Day's career fizzled out. True, some of the latter films were not up to standard and fared poorly but that was mostly the fault of the script not the public's affection for Doris Day. "With Six You Get Eggroll" sold more than 13 million tickets in 1968 and was one of the top ten moneymaking films of her career. Here are a couple of quotes from 1968: (August 19, 1968 headline - "Where Were You" breaks one mark threatens others at NY Music Hall. It goes on to say that "Where Were You..." set a nonholiday record for its first day, looks to break an all-time record during it's first week (it did) and is playing to capacity houses. For each of it's first four weeks the gross exceeded $ 250,000 per week. A blurb on September 23, 1968 about the scheduled opening of "Eggroll" in NYC on October 9 stated, "....a Cinema Center Films Production, the picture, which has been entertaining family audiences in RECORD numbers across the country since it had its world premiere in Boston in August..." Finally, in a September 2nd story about the summer film business in Oklahoma City, an exhibtor states, "....With Six You Get Eggroll" is a further example, this being the best grossing film for Miss Day since "Pillow Talk". Both "Lights" and "Eggroll" turned the box-office tide after the disappointing grosses for "Caprice" and especially for "Josie". With good scripts she could easily have continued in films. The 1968 Box Office All American Favorites Female Star Poll that had Miss Day at number 4, had her ahead of Elizabeth Taylor (# 5), Katharine Hepburn (6) and in 7 - 12 - Shirley MacLaine, Joanne Woodward, Julie Christie, Jane Fonda, Raquel Welch and Debbie Reynolds in 12th. After 20 years in films, she was still a formidable presence, after two decades of screen stardom.

And the saddest part of all that is SHE HERSELF did not really realize that. I think she let a few bad reviews from some stupid critics influence her not to do any more movies...and how sad for the world. I hope those stupid critics get theirs some day.....and that, too, will be long overdue!
NO ONE in the history of Hollywood pleased more people for so many years as she did (and continues to do)...whether she realizes it or not. MOST PEOPLE LOVE DORIS DAY...and that is that.

Another way of looking at it, Mike, was she had had enough of Hollywood by the late sixties, she'd been working since she was, how old, 16? She always said she didn't retire, she just did something else. I admire her for that, she used her talents to do something for animals, which was always important to her, and to do 'normal things'.

She was never a Bette Davis type who worked until she dropped and lived for her next film role. She gave more than enough and I think she did the right thing - you can't live in a 'super-phoney Hollywood' goldfish bowl all your life and remain sane.

Paul, I wonder how much more her films have earned through the sale of videos and DVDs in the years since? Probably impossible to calculate? Do you know if she still earns royalties on them? Hope so.

Sleepless in London.

Bryan - Since most of the films from "Julie" on were Arwin Productions, she would have earned monies from the films each time they were sold for viewing, whether individually or as part of a package. Likewise, when they were put on Video years ago and more recently on DVD, Arwin would benefit. I do know that the titles were sold for two viewings on NBC, ABC or CBS in the 60's for "Saturday Night at the Movies", etc. at 1 million dollars for the two showings. Arwin received half and the studio that made the film received half. There probably isn't any way short of viewing the Arwin books of knowing just how much income was earned but I recently read somewhere (I'll try to track down the quote) that the recent Doris Day Collections exceeded all expectations with their sales.

One last point, only one of Miss Day's films failed to show a profit ("Ballad of Josie"). Every other title was profitable including "Tunnel of Love", "It Happened to Jane" and "Jumbo". "Jumbo" went into profit only after being sold to television but the budget for "Tunnel" was barely a million dollars since it was shot in several weeks, in black and white and required limited sets. "Josie", despite losing money did earn a certain distinction. When it was broadcast by NBC as part of their "Monday Night at the Movies" in the Fall of 1969, it achieved an amazing rating (One of the highest to date for the primetime movie) and an audience share of approximately 50% of those watching television. Variety noted at the time that for a half hour that Monday since "The Doris Day Show" was being telecast on CBS during a portion of the evening and was a ratings winner also, that the combined audience share watching Doris Day for part of the evening represented more than 75% of the people in America who were watching television. Of course in "those days" there were no cable channels, HBO, etc. so people tended to watch one of the major networks, but Parade Magazine stated in 1968 that Doris Day films were the best ratings draw and that the three networks were engaging in "open warfare" to secure the rights to telecast Miss Day's films.

That's really interesting, Paul - thanks for that. I think I'll have to make you an avatar of Gig Young from his professor role in "Teacher's Pet" :) (Have I got that right?)

It's started to snow again so I think I'll crawl under my duvet and try and sleep.

(Now let's see, seven and a half cents, plus $1m for two viewings, plus... zzzzzzzz)

Awesome. Now I know where to go to get the names of all her movies :D Thanks for this :D

Yeah it's a shame that she stopped making movies, but 39 movies is an impressive amount. I think she deserved to live a life she wanted now. She's earned it :D And what better way to live than to help those wonderful animals :D

I hope she realises just how much she's loved by her fans, and that even after all these years she still has lots and lots of fans who adore her and her work. :wink:

hehe, seven and a half cents, I like that song :p

i RECEIVED this email today. Anyone have any information?

Have you heard of a recent movie with Doris Day in it called "Grandmother's baby". My grandson's girlfriend is a Doris Day fanatic and loves all of her movies. She mentioned this movie when I saw her Sunday for my grnadson's birthday party. Never heard of it. It is supposed to have been made in the last couple of years.

There's no such film but there is one called Grandma's Boy and, obviously, Doris isn't in it as she doesn't make films any more, tell her. :roll:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0456554/

A woman called Doris Roberts play Grandma Lilly so maybe that's where the confusion comes from.

Going to delete these last posts - this question is more for Small Talk - (general discussion and questions).
I want to keep this topic neat and focused on the information that Paul has provided.

We were watching Doris Day in Calamity Jane! today, and we were so impressed with her vitality and agility.
She act so different to many of her other films, very tomboyish -almost overacting. Usually she was very glamorous and feminine. Anyone got any comments on that? Also, did she do all her own horse riding or did she use stunt doubles?

Please forgive me if my memory has failed me, which is not all that uncommon as I get older. I have been trying to remember a DD film from many years ago without success. And of course I can't remember who she was in the movie with, but perhaps one of you will refresh my mind.

She was married and had a son going to Europe, and ends up with mom and dad following him to make sure he doesnt get into trouble. He doesn't but she does, she goes to jail after being caught inside a brothel, and with her husband enter a restaurant through the back door, she is wearing a trenchcoat over a bikini and is arguing with her husband. she turns to the cook and opens her coat, saying "Does this look lke the body of a 40 yr old woman?" and of course the cook runs to her and starts kissing her stomach.

I am sorry my memory is not what it used to be, but I would love to see the movie again. Any help out there?

April -
Sorry to be delayed in responding to your question. The movie to which you are referring is a 1968 release entitled, "How Sweet It Is" and it starred Debbie Reynolds and James Garner.

Interestingly, it was to have originally starred Doris Day under it's original title (it was based on a book of the same name) - "The Girl in the Turquoise Bikini". When a deal could not be reached on the film, it was sold to another company which filmed it under the new title.

Had the deal worked out for Miss Day to star in it, it would have been her third teaming with James Garner.

Hello everybody!

I'm new here. I think this is such a beautiful site! I was just looking at the films of Doris Day section and I noticed that it said that Caprice was one of four films that Doris did not enjoy making.

Does anyone know the other three?

Thanks in advance!

Anita :D

From her book,it would seem Doris did not enjoy the following films- either because of the script, or, for other personal reasons (sometimes bringing back memories she'd rather forget).

Do Not Disturb - 1965
Caprice - 1967;
Where were you when the lights went out - 1967;
Midnight Lace - 1960;
Ballad of Josie (although she did enjoy the location) - 1968;
Young Man with a Horn - 1949;

in New Youtube
In a brief 20 year period (from 1948 through 1968), Doris Day became the All Time Female Box Office Champion. She did this with the help of 39 films, an amazing record for any star at any time in Hollywood History.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


New video honors all 39 of Doris Day's movies
New video honors all 39 of Doris Day's movies
PRLog (Press Release) - Nov 19, 2012 -
The Creative Team at sampod4u.com has created a new video you will want to see. It covers the 39 films in which Doris Day starred in her 20 year movie career, for which she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Acting Achievement, as well as the Los Angeles Film Critics Award for Achievement. The video takes each movie, in turn, with some pertinent facts and music about each. Often forgotten is the fact that before she became a big film star, Doris was first a big recording star, the top female album seller of the 1950's. It is no surprise that many of her hits came directly from her movies. More recognition came for Doris when she was recently awarded the Legend Award from the Society of Singers.


Is is no wonder that Doris maintains the title of Top Grossing Female Box Office Star of All Time, a record never broken. The scope and variety of her film roles attest to her remarkable ability to play any role, just as her musical career also shows such true versatility. From comedy to musicals to westerns to dramatic ventures, Doris was one of the best. Only in recent years has she begun to get the accolades from critics who ignored her for years. Tom Santopietro, in his book Considering Doris Day, helps to set the record straight, as does Sampod webmaster, Mike DeVita, in his book, My 'Secret Love' Affair With Doris Day". Both books should be on your reading list if you are a fan of or are interested in this phenomenal career.


The video is posted on sampod4u.com on the Just Doris Day pages, under the category MOVIES. It is also posted on youtube under the title, "Doris Day Movies."
