Bun

Unread post by ray »

LOL! That bun WAS a bit distacting! Doris may have thought she would start a hairdo trend. Only Doris could get away with that. Its is kinda futuristic looking and still may catch on, where else can Do's go?

season 3 - the bun!

Unread post by Jas1 »

On the hair topic re -season 3 - I don't particularly like the bun either and much preferred it when Doris wears her hair in a pony tail as she does often enough in season 3. And what I find even more of a distraction is that wonderful Day figure (enhanced in wonderful fashions) - amazing!

What will be...will be forever!

Doris walked into the 70's and the third season of her TV series as a glorious throwback to Hollywood's Golden era. With her bubble bun and Mida dresses and big hats she palnted herself in our living rooms weekly and remained true to herself.
Who knew in a few short years her series would be over and the court win assured her an early retirement away from the public eye she was so uncomfortable with.

Season 3

Unread post by Jas1 »

Got Season 3 and it is my favourite! Miss Day looks superb - bubble bun or not - her clothes are fantastic and very toDay!

I particluarly loved hearing Doris sing again - the Xmas show - she looked wonderful and the whole show was full of such good cheer. The Tony Bennett show too was wonderful, to hear Doris sing with him - superb, and Doris going to Hollywood, class!

As with her films, I WANT that apartment, that life!

Oh, and Philip Brown's remarks were brilliant - love it love it love it!!

Doris's hair-do's in the Fashion Show defied gravity and the way she looked so chic and in shape defied her age! She was in her late forties and looked fabulous!

Episode 6 - Doris Leaves Today's World (part2)

Unread post by Peter Flapper »

Hi all,

We know that Doris is an great actress, and a lot of us think about the kidnap scene in The man who knew too much, when Doris hears that her son is missing. That scene is teriffic.

Well on this episode of The Doris Day Show, Toby is missing while Doris is in Greece. It's very emotional and believable scene. Great done by Doris. You can feel the emotions. A job very well done.

So if you own this episode, watch it. This is the way acting should be.

Season 3

Unread post by Jas1 »

Actually, as series 3 goes on 'the bun' becomes less pronounced and by the time Doris 'Goes to Hollywod' and the 'Xmas show' - her hair worn up is quite lovely. Didn't she look superb in that black and red outift for her Xmas party? - that show actually made me cry -happy tears, it is so full of good cheer - and will be a must to watch come December.

Doris in Hollywood in that wonderful figure hugging purple dress is divine.

Doris skiing (anyone) with Mr Gavin, is wonderful and as Rose Marie said in the cast interview (season 2) - the shows were indeed classy!

Have never seen episodes from seasons 4 and 5 but going by the preview of season 4, I think (sadly) something will be greatly missing with the likes of the boys, Myrna etc missing.

Season Four and Five

Unread post by ray »

Actually Jas you are going to be pleasantly surprised with season four and five, Doris is perkier and funnier and has various male suitors. Acting like the sexy and alive wowan that she is , seeing several men instead of dating just one. Thats how a real seventies woman behaved and Doris played it out well with a healthy attitude and many love scenes. That helped her shed the goody image that never really was what she was all about anyway. Even in Pillow Talk she suggested she dated many men but Rock in that movie was THE one for her. After a few shows you totally forget about Rose Marie, the boys and Buck. Thats what acting is about, making you believe the situation I guess.

Changes

Doris must have like the format changes on her TV show since she was used to different roles in Movies. At least she wasn't bored with the same format year after year.

Larry Storch

Unread post by ray »

Just watched the show where Duke ( Larry Storch ) becomes a nightclub performer. Doris even sings and dances a little with Larry and he does pretty good impersonations of Doris Co-stars James Cagney and Cary Grant. I read one time that Doris was seeing a comedian, could it have been Larry?? He certainly could make her laugh! Don't think Doris would really be attracted to Larry in that way, just adding a little spice to the forum!!LOL!
By the way Larry was hysterical in the short lived TV series F-Troop with Ken Berry.

More TV Trivia

Unread post by ray »

Ken Berry who co-starred with Larry Storch in F-Troop also had his own show with Mayberry RFD, a spinoff of Mayberry with Andy Griffin. Ken was married to Doris's long time pal Jackie Joseph. They divorced in the early seventies. And Andy Griffin from mayberry fame did a guest appearance as a bad guy on the fifth season of The Doris Day Show. Also as we all know Ron Howard played his son on Mayberry and supposedly Martin Melcher liked both shows that Andy and Ken were in. The first season of the Doris Day Show resembled Mayberry to some degree.

Tony Bennett is singing here!

Unread post by Jas1 »

I love the episodes in the 3rd Season where Doris sings and boy is she in top form. One gets the impression she has to hold back a bit on her talent when dueting (same as with Perry Como) - her rendition of 'I left my heart in San-Francisco' is superb as is 'Silver bells' etc from the X-Mas show.

Ray, that is one of the Best Friends shows that I haven't seen and would love to. I know it is the show where that picture comes from of a very chic Doris in a white/ beige two piece skirt suit and long boots and matching beret - she looks superb.

Finally, I love Tony Bennett singing - he is 'perhaps' my favourite male singer. I met him after one of his shows about 10 years ago - didn't think to ask about Doris! Did ask him what he thought of Sarah Vaughan (my favourite) and of course he rated her very highly.

Tony Bennett quote

Unread post by howard »

Jas: Here's what Tony Bennett had to say about Doris:

“She’s gifted in a way that makes everything she does work. She’s a Hollywood producer’s dream: she has beauty, she’s a great actress, a wonderful singer – putting it simply, she has it all!"

This quote came out of a cd he released a number of years back in which he saluted some of his favorite girl singers.

Reflections

Unread post by Jas1 »

Thanks Howard, yes, that says it all really.

Re- Fashions - did anyone else notice how Doris [Martin] wore some of the clothes she modelled for the French designer? Season 2 - fashion show - Doris later wears the long eggshell blue coat (in the Xmas show). She also wears the cream trouser suit in Season 3 in the episode "The Feminist". On her special (1971) she wears the black evening dress (ruffled at the neckline) that she wears in season 3 - again in "The Feminist". From the season 3 fashion show, she wears the 'groovy' patchwork long waiscoat - in "Doris the spy". - Guess Doris Martin had a stash of loot somewhere to help indulge herself in these wonderful haute coiture creations!!!

Music, - I love how her tv show very often brings in background music associated with her past albums.

Figure - my favourite image of her - MAYBE EVER - could be from season 3 dancing around with the Duke in her pig tails and that grey 'tight fitting' grey sweater and trousers - wow, what a figure - she looks about 28!

Xmas show

Ray - the first time I watched this episode I cried - (happy tears) - it reallyl effected me - so full of good cheer - this will be a must to watch come December with a roaring log fire and maybe a hot port! Doesn't Doris look superb in this episode? Either with long hair and so groovy at the beginning or in her wonderful red and black outfit for the party with her hair swept up - our girl Day had style in abundance.

Cat fight!

Unread post by ray »

Doris was ahead of The Dynasty girls with a cat fight on her show with Duke's ( Larry Storch ) fake socialite girlfriend. Joan Collins and Linda Evans made cat fights famous on TV but Doris did it years before they came on the scene. Doris was ahead of them in the over forty glamour department too!
