Re: Doris Day Mentioned Quite Positively in New Book: The Movie Musical by Jeanine Basinger

Thank you so much docwheels for your wonderful post on the book The Movie Musical by Jeanine Basinger. It is so gratifying to see the appreciation expressed for Doris Day in her musicals.

Re: The Ballad of Josie

Re: Poll: Doris Would Have Been Better

I just saw recently Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Ellen Burstyn. Ellen won the 1974 Academy Award for best actress and was sensational in the role.

Re: The Glass Bottom Boat

I make a point of seeing The Glass Bottom Boat at least two or three times a year. There is a high level of comedic energy. Doris Day's physical comedy timing skills shine brightly. This is illustrated perfectly in her slapstick scene with Dom DeLuise . The romantic chemistry with Rod Taylor works e...
