Guys, 'My Heart'is the 29th studio album by Doris Day, released on September 5, 2011. On September 11, 2011 the album entered the UK chart at number nine, making Doris Day, at 87, the oldest artist to score a UK Top 10 with an album featuring new material.

Great album. Great voice. Great work, full of sweetness and positivity.

Old people need their privacy. She doesn't have to expose herself anymore. The fact that she made an album in 2011 while she was 87, is very generous and sweet of her. Positive and sweet. This album has positive messages to give and it is certainly worthy, warm, cute, and GOOD.

One of the reasons Doris turned down the role of Mrs Robinson in 'The Graduate' was her then husband. He was disgusted by the novel and refused to pass it on to Doris. It is also said that Doris herself thought the movie role unbecoming. She retired from the movies a year later, and had her own TV series 'The Doris Day Show'(1968).

by Anonymousreply 6206/24/2013

For 'Midnight Lace'(1960), in her autobiography, Doris Day wrote that to prepare herself for one of the terror scenes, she recalled a time when her first husband, trombonist Al Jorden, dragged her out of bed when she was ill and pregnant and hurled her against a wall. Day related that in the scene she wasn't acting hysterical, she WAS hysterical, and at the end of the take she collapsed in a real faint. She was carried to her dressing room, and producer Ross Hunter shut down production for a few days while she recovered.

Dictating his memoirs near the end of his life, 'Rex Harrison' barely mentioned "Midnight Lace" except to say that he wasn't fond of the script. He also (falsely) reported that 'Doris Day' was under so much pressure to make the picture work that she collapsed. Day was indeed under strain, though it was due to her personal form of method-acting that caused her breakdown, not from the script or the production.

[R34] Day is not obese in any way. She has always been, to use an old expression, trim & fit, and remains so to this day. Day was always known for having one of the best asses in Hollywood. You can see it in plenty of pics, where she's wearing Capri pants.

[R51& 63] The Minnelli / DeNiro film, "New York,New York", is based on the relationship Day had with her first husband, a jazz musician, who Day said beat her regularly.

[R58] That hunk in the photo, is much DL discussed favorite, Steve Cochran, a year after appearing with Crawford, in "The Damned Don't Cry". He's a favorite here, for having one of Hollywood's biggest penis'.

Before I was born, my parents had a beachouse in Malibu, next door to Day & Melcher ( Day used it as a weekend retreat). My mother told me Day was a sweetheart, always friendly, and down to earth. They kind of bonded cause my mother, and Doris' husband ( and Day too, though not a real convert , I understand) were Christian Scientists, and attended the same church. Like my mother, Day did not serve alcoholic drinks in her home. But unlike Day, my folks did not have a soda fountain in their den (as it was called then). My mom told me it was such fun when Doris & Marty, would have a few people over, and would serve milkshakes, or floats, from the fountain. Very late 50's / early 60's. My mom felt so bad, years later, when Melcher died, and it appears, he, and a business partner, had swindled Doris out of all he money she made.

Doris is to be remembered If for no other reason than for being a friend to all animals . Someone mentioned once that maybe she withdrew herself from Hollywood, because she found that dogs gave her the unconditional love that humans never did. She helped everyone to realize how precious ordinary 'mutts' were, and really was at the forefront of what's now considered the rescue movement - encouraging people to adopt dogs who were abandonded, neglected, or abused. Hope she'll be remembered for that , as much as for her recordings, and movies.

Last time I was in Carmel, where Doris lives, it was amusing to watch for Doris Day look-a-likes who appeared on every block, older women with dyed blond hair, fairly fit, with denim work shirts over white t-shirts, khakis, and tennis shoes, a bit like this photo linked.

It's fun to do this in various places, for example, in Palo Alto, you'll see men on every block in jeans, black turtlenecks, trainers, and round rim glasses embodying the Steve Jobs motif.

Of Doris, Myrna Loy says, 'I have nothing but the best to say. She was wonderful to me, really lovely. She sent flowers when i started, and remained friendly and attentive. As i've said, it's difficult when you start stepping down. You fight so hard to get to the top and then you realize it's time to gracefully give in a little. Doris, who was riding high then, never played the prima donna. I appreciate her attitude enormously.'

Natasha Parry, although she did not have a great deal to do with Doris in her role of Rex Harrison's mistress, was also high in her praises. Doris was unfailingly kind and courteous and Natasha was deeply impressed by Doris's meticulous attention to detail. 'She would be in hours before everyone else, and i watched her apply the right shade of make-up to her legs to tone with the stockings she would be wearing in each scene.'

These happy memories aside, the filming of 'Midnight Lace' was traumatic for Doris, especially in the scene in which she had to become hysterical. The 'Method' actress in her-her own method-made her relate back to the time Al Jorden(her first husband)had burst into her room, dragged her from bed and hurled her against the wall...It was all too real-acting was transformed into reality and she fainted after the take. Director David Miller and Marty attended her in her dressing room and she was sent home for a few days to recuperate.

After a light dinner in bed Doris listened to Marty singing some of her favourite Christian Science hymns:this was the Marty she had felt such an empathy with at the beginning of their marriage, and the religion that had so much power to soothe and tranquillize. She slept soundly that night and did not awaken once until morning, when she felt refreshed enough to return to the set, but with the proviso that she should never attempt another film with the same kind of theme. Marty agreed with her and she was able to get through the ordeal. She says how real the concern was everyone showed for her-even Rex Harrison solicitously escorted her to her car after her fainting spell, and she was grateful for his light British sense of humour, which helped to steady her during the more upsetting scenes in the movie.

I was just at Wiki reading about Doris and her first two husbands. The second one, who also treated her pretty shabbily, was George Weidler a sax player with big bands and also with his two brothers. When Doris married him, the little girl in "The Women" and the kid sister in "The Philadelphia Story," Virginia Weidler, became her sister-in-law. Virginia was George's younger sister.

Allegedly, the first husband used to beat her badly and then throw her on the bed and fuck her senseless. I guess it wasn't that bad for Dodo because she kept going back to him.

Doris got to fuck on some very hot men in her prime including raging heterosexual Steve (10 inch) Cochran and that big, huggable teddy bear, Jack Carson. She wasn't as virginal as we might think.

She really had to - in those days, if America's sweetheart was known to be screwing a big, black baseball player , it would have ended her career. Where as now, Kim K. screws a big, black (wanna be) singer, we see it, on film, and she becomes famous. How times have changed.

I know Doris is a multi-millionaire, but she was flat broke when Terry Melcher died, and that's why she did the TV series in the late 60s. I don't think she made THAT much money from the TV series. And it hasn't been in syndication in decades, so she's not making any money from it today.

But she had nothing to spend the millions made from the TV show on but herself.

So even if she came away with a modest 15 million from the series, if invested well in the 1970s, would have lasted very nicely.

If she bought her Carmel property outright in the 1970s, there's very little expenses except for taxes....and perhaps some of that is defrayed by her pet adoption facilities.

And I bet all the dog food is graciously donated by funders or pet food companies.

Doris goes commando at the AFI.

In 1974, at the age of 50, Doris decided to show off her still-magnificent body. She wore a skin-tight jersey dress which left no room for bra or panties, and left nothing to the imagination. We get an intimate view of the best ass in Hollywood and tits to match.

Unfortunately, the video has been edited. In the original video, Jack Lemmon has an outrageous reaction as he gets a close-up look at Doris's ass as she walks by his table.

She started out as a young dancer. Her idol was Ginger Rogers. Then, she got into a really bad car accident and it took her months to recuperate. She had to release her male dancing partner. While convalescing, she started vocalizing, to put up with the boredom of her situation.

Her husband, Martin Melcher badly mishandled her fincances. He had had a gambling habit; so he made her do those poorly scripted movies. He also signed her up for a tv series without her knowledge. She really trusted him.

Her late son, Terry, said she was selling more records in her retirement, than she did in her heyday.

I seem to remember reading that after Terry died, she became estranged from her daughter-in-law and her only grandson. *I hope it isn't true.

*Looks like it is true. They haven't spoken to each other for 16 years. He seems to be doing a "Grandmommy Dearest" thing these days. Spilling "secrets" here and there.

Many of those TCM films are from before Doris' virginity.

After Pillow Talk and Calamity Jane, my favorite Doris Day picture is Teacher's Pet. DD, Clark Gable, Gig Young and Mamie van Doren.

Funny, smart, and with something to say. Worth seeking out.

R122, have you any idea how wealthy people live? They have the means to be taken care of in the later years. Adult children do not do it.

Yeah, just ask Brooke Astor about that, r133.

Just reading an article on a new Charles Manson book. Nothing really new, but since it implicitly points out that Manson felt rejected by the music business, and his last rejection was from Terry Melcher, DD's son, who was then a music exec - it makes it very clear that Manson really did believe that Melcher & then girlfriend Candy Bergen, and anyone who was at that house that night, were the real targets. It got me thinking. If it were today, the internet would have let Manson know that Melcher no longer lived there, and he probably would have had access to his real address. And if it were today, there would have been a camera(s) at the gate, and probably a 'safe room' in the house (like so many celebrities, and wealthier people in Bev. Hills, and Bel Air have). I guess what I'm getting at , is how lucky / fortunate Melcher & Bergen were, and how terribly unlucky Tate, and everyone else was .

Melcher survived another 35 years - dying of cancer, in 2004. But apparently for years after he went into seclusion, began undergoing psychiatric treatment, & employed bodyguards. I also heard his mother was well protected too, as no one knew if anyone from that madman's crew would still come after them

Sweet ole Doris

Bumping to remind everyone that Day Day starts on TCM at 3AM Pacific/6AM Eastern tomorrow, with "Romance on the High Seas." And at 4:45PM PT/7:45PM ET there's a clip from an old "Tonight" show from the mid-'70s with Johnny interviewing Doris.

Did she stipulate they use that ridiculous lighting for her close-ups on The Doris Day Show.

R130 & R138 - What, no "Julie" or "Midnight Lace" ? Those are 2 of my faves, in each, a psycho husband going after DoDo leaving her in one, balancing perilously on girders, on a London high rise construction site, the other, having to land a plane full of passengers (all alone in the cockpit) at San Francisco Airport - each shows DoDo in true, over the top hysteria.

Day was one of the most popular movie stars of all time. If only she would receive an honorary Oscar and be there to accept it. It would make for an incredible Oscar moment.

I hope everyone caught Joan Crawford's cameo (as herself) in "It's a Great Feeling" wherein she gives a speech from "Mildred Pierce" in a scene with her MP co-star Jack Carson. She goes on a tirade and slaps him. Stunned, he asks, "Why did you do that?" She replies, "I do that in all my pictures."

Doris co-starred with Rod Taylor in two movies: Do Not Disturb, and Glass Bottom Boat. Do we think they fooled around?

For that matter, did she also screw Paul Lynde on the set of Glass Bottom Boat?

by Anonymousreply 14408/12/2013

Doris was born 3 April 1922. Her Ohio birth certificate has been located proving it. She was 19 when she first married, not 17. She's 91 now.

No wonder she was filmed thru a bag of ice in the 1960s.

This is a pic of Paul from "The Glass Bottom Boat." Any more questions?

by Anonymousreply 14608/12/2013

Yes, who had the act first: Paul or Alice?
