Happy 90th Birthday, Doris Day!

Way back in 1948, before Doris made a movie, I saw her at the Maryland University performance of The Bob Hope Show with Les Brown and his Orchestra. Little did I know she would become a BIG star!    One advantage to having a good memory.

I love the Life Magazine cover that noah posted.  Wonderful!

 

Though the message boards were offline yesterday and I was unable to post about this subject-- I truly enjoyed the 24-hour Dorisathon.  

 

Thanks TCM!

 

My only request is that I would like to see JULIE again, and MIDNIGHT LACE would not hurt, either! :)

I'm glad you like the cover. My favorite Doris Day film is On Moonlight Bay (1951). Just a musical--nothing too complicated although I thought Billy Gray stole some scenes!

Although Doris and Rock Hudson were considered the ultimate screen couple, I have to say I think her and Jack Carson were the better team.

I prefer her with James Garner.  She had chemistry with many male costars (the possible exception being Ray Bolger).  And in the same way, Garner had chemistry with many female costars-- including Suzanne Pleshette, Julie Andrews and Sally Field.  So you put them together, and it's a win-win.  The other thing I like about her with Garner is that they are believable as lovers and as parents.  Hudson didn't often play fatherly roles, and neither did Rod Taylor-- her other frequent costar in the sixties.

For those who get MeTV, on Sunday, April 6th, they have a block of Doris' favorite episodes from her tv series

Yes, I mentioned that last week-- in another Doris Day thread.  These are episodes (seven of them) that she personally selected.  I noticed when I set the DVR for them, each episode is being given a 35 minute time slot.

 

The Doris Day Show lasted for five seasons.  She selected episodes from each season, except season 4.

Doris also did not have chemistry with Richard Widmark. (TUNNEL OF LOVE)
