Re: Interview with Roy Newquist

The thing I found most fascinating in Doris' part of this audio recording is where she said she didn't think of making movies as a career - just an interesting activity. Then she goes on to say that if that stopped tomorrow she wouldn't give it a moment's thought because she'd just find other intere...

Re: 2021 Doris Day Pictures

Thank you for all these wonderful photos. Thought I'd seen every photo of Doris that was out there - but almost all of these are new to me. Really appreciate you taking the time to do this.

Doris' Lovely Voice in New Movie - Sylvie's Love

There's a new romantic movie - set in the 1950's and 1960's - showing on Amazon Prime. The name of this sweet romance is "Sylvia's Love." Imagine my delight about 2/3rd's of the way through the movie to lookup from my handwork and hear Doris singing "Fly Me to the Moon." Then at the end of the movie...

Doris Mentioned in New Book about Hitchcock and Actors

In Dan Callahan's brand new book - The Camera Lies: Acting for Hitchcock - Doris's performance in The Man Who Knew Too Much is briefly discussed. Basically, this author thought Doris overacted ("histrionic" and "uncontrolled") in the scene where she's given sedatives by Jimmy Stewart but he thought,...
