Such talent around here for our Doris. I love your voice over, Michael, and your suburb testament to her talent and abilities. I wish Doris could see it, also.

Michael - can you email me at lbenjamin.2005@gmail.com. There is something about making your film I'd like to ask you instead of me taking up room here. Thank you,

Lauren

Everyone, thank you so much. Just grateful that you enjoyed it. It was a bit daunting at first, but I stayed with it and believe it was worth the effort.

Lauren, I can verify that Doris has seen it and she was very pleased. This was a dream come true for me.

Thank you Peter. It makes me very happy that other fans are enjoying it.

I must give credit to Paul Brogan for providing the compelling data about her career. Paul is a veritable walking encylopedia of Doris information. He was also very generous with his time by providing a stellar quote that summed it all up beautifully. His support and encouragement meant a great deal to me. And several others, including Lloyd Jessen, Howard Green and Ania provided photos and other information that added enormously to the project. Lloyd even previewed it and provided many helpful suggestions to make it better.

Last, but certainly not least, Bryan helped me with some of the technical components.

Color me forever grateful.

Michael

Michael, I can't believe I am just now seeing this wonderful video, you did a wonderful job of capturing some of her best performances of this era of her career, not only with the wonderful clips but beautiful photos of her as well. So glad you put in those wonderful dancing scenes from "Lullabye Of Broadway with Gene Nelson, and you did a first class job of the narration of all of it, So looking forward to your next one. :wink:

Barbara & Texas ~

My thanks to both of you for commenting. I am thrilled that you enjoyed this tribute to her work in the 1950s.

I recall being dazzled all over again by her dancing when I worked on this video. Her tap dancing opposite Gene Nelson was spectacular in my opinion. I don't think there has ever been a more versatile musical movie star than Doris Day.

Thanks again for your terrific responses.

Michael

Good to see you get the appreciation you deserve, Michael.

It needs a wider audience, you could put it on YouTube, but you might run into copyright problems.

Or, I just thought, looking at it again, I could link to it from http://www.dorisday.net ?

What do you think?

Thank you Michael for Doris Day: The 1950's video. I was captivated by it from beginning to end. It really describes beautifully Doris 'versatility as an actress, singer and dancer. I was particularly moved by your words Michael near the end stating how as a seven-year old you had never encountered a more dazzling presence. You so aptly described her energy as intoxicating along with her charm, sass and heartfelt romance Doris emotes. I heartily agree with every word. I feel the same.

The first film I saw with my family as a child was a Doris Day film. I fell in love with her screen presence at first sight.

Bryan, you are so right that this fantastic video needs a larger audience, I plan to share this video with my friends and younger family members.

Thank you so much Michael and Bryan.
Johnny

Johnny,

Thank you for your wonderful response.

My intent in making the video was to create something that honored her work and highlighted the qualities that set her apart from everyone else. While I admire a number of gifted performers, none of them have captivated me the way Doris has. She radiated something that I responded to in a profound and lasting way. This video was my attempt at expressing that and your reaction tells me that I succeeded.

Thank you so much for commenting.

Michael,

Have you thought about putting your excellent video on Daily Motion?

They seem a bit more relaxed than YouTube and there's lots of Doris movies to watch on there:

http://www.dailymotion.com/playlist/x40 ... eo=x1zdrg4

Also Lauren, it might be a good place for your videos as well.

My old channel on there: http://www.dailymotion.com/user/bryanjames/1

I'm thinking about restarting it.

Michael,

I just looked at your video again, Doris Day, The 1950's. It is captivating. I love the narrative that expresses, "There has never been before or since, a more genuine presence on the screen than Doris Day". I agree whole- heartedly. Doris strikes that chord of humanity in all of us that is kind and noble. She elicits the best in us that is caring, loves life, and laughter .

She has helped us and thousands of others create sweet life-long memories while watching her beautiful film performances and listening to her classic songs. These treasured memories of Doris we share and recall often with family and friends . Her grace, good humour and sincerity are timeless gifts she has shared with her fans. This kind of authenticity is the reason we love her to this day.

Thank you again Michael for your beautiful work and tribute to Doris.
Johnny
