Doris Day in Hitchcock and Hitchcock-Lite

Classic Film & TV Cafe Posted by Rick29 on Jun 29, 2020

In regard to his two versions of The Man Who Knew Too Much (1934 and 1956), Alfred Hitchcock famously quipped: "Let's just say that the first version was the work of a talented amateur and the second was made by a professional." These days, it's fashionable to prefer the earlier film, though I read more

On DVD: Doris Day in The Pajama Game (1957)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Aug 22, 2019

I’ve always viewed The Pajama Game (1957) as an oddity among musicals. How else can you look at a romance blossoming among workers’ strikes and labor negotiations? Compounding that is a soundtrack which mixes utterly forgettable tunes with some of the greatest classics of the genre and o read more

Saying goodbye to Doris Day

Comet Over Hollywood Posted by on May 15, 2019

On the first day of eighth grade in 2002, I was a changed girl. I was sporting contact lenses after wearing glasses for years, and I had a new favorite actress that changed my life over the summer: Doris Day. I excitedly asked my friends as we walked through the halls if they had seen “Pillo read more

On Blu-ray: Doris Day and Rod Taylor in The Glass Bottom Boat (1966)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on May 14, 2019

I wrote this review days before the legendary Doris Day passed on. It is in a way a tribute to her charm and talent, because every word I've ever written about her has been a tribute. She was the living embodiment of sunshine and so phenomenally talented. Produced in the last decade of Doris Day read more

Classic Movie Man Posted by Stephen Reginald on May 14, 2019

Remembering Doris Day (1922 – 2019) When I was a kid, I remember my dad playing Doris Day records on our stereo system (remember those?). Not only was Day one of my dad’s favorite vocalists, but she was his favorite movie star. I can still remember the album covers of Day’s al read more

Doris Day And Tim Conway

The Hitless Wonder Movie Blog Posted by Dan Day, Jr. on May 14, 2019

I don't write a lot of tribute blog posts when a notable performer passes away, simply because celebrity deaths seem to happen all the time. If I was in the habit of regularly writing tribute posts, I'd have to do it constantly, and I don't want this blog to be nothing more than an obituary. But th read more

Doris Day and the Reaction Shot

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on May 13, 2019

Today a man I know well surprised me, and I could tell I had one of those hilariously odd expressions on my face in response. When I heard a couple hours later that Doris Day had died, it seemed to me that I’d inadvertently paid tribute to that marvelous, strong, very funny woman. There will never read more

The Wonderful World of Cinema Posted by Virginie Pronovost on Apr 3, 2019

In 1955, Doris Day was already a well-established actress and music entertainer. She was making films since 1948 (Romance on the High Seas) and had quickly conquered our hearts with her enchanting voice, her smile and her sense of fun.
