    :eyes: Wow! I hadn't expected you to pass completely. It's not like you. You haven't seen a single Doris Day movie?

    That's my favorite Doris Day movie too! :pals:

    I take that as a compliment Karin! Actually I haven´t watched anything with her aside from the Rock Hudson comedies and a thriller from 1960 which I sort of liked ("Midnight Lace", where she had the sublime company of Rex Harrison, John Gavin, Myrna Loy, and Roddy McDowall, so it wasn´t just a "Doris Day vehicle"). It would be unfair not to admit that her chemistry with Mr. Hudson was extraordinary, and, with a bit of more edge, the films might have been more critical with their times and storylines, and more ageless too.

    I didn´t want to give any negative feedback either, I just find Ms. Day a good (and sugary) singer "who could act" and who represented a very specific American era (the 50´s-early 60´s), or at least what some people wanted it to be. I enjoy her music and I wouldn´t switch off the TV if I found one of her movies playing (mysteriously) on my TV. I know that other movie buffs think the same thing about other singer-actresses like Debbie Reynolds, Julie Andrews, or Barbra Streisand. I´d take any one of these (even the former, who wasn´t as multitalented as the other two) over Ms. Day.

    I think Doris Day was incredibly smart to retire from show business at the right time, and what we could call her "legacy" is up there, for those who like her style, to consume and admire. Fortunately, there was no tragedy in her life that (sadly) turned her into a legend like Marilyn. If you like Doris´s movies, I´d recommend you a satirical movie of her "style" called "Down with Love" (see trailer below). It´s absolutely delicious with all this word implies...and Renée Zellwegger nails the role (it´s not a remake, nor a biopic: just a very clever, assumedly campy homage).


    With these characteristics, it HAD TO catch Miss Piggy´s attention, and she adores the movie! (And yes, Sarah Paulson is in it playing Renée´s bestie!). Here´s the superfunny clip the couple filmed:

    Great choice, love Doris and I hate ranking my favorite things so this will be hard but I'll give it a go.

    1. Teacher's Pet (1957)

    This is maybe an unusual choice but this little movie is seriously underrated. Not only does it have a unique pairing of Doris and Clark Gable but it also an interesting plot and some very smart writing, dialogue and humor. It's like a Billy Wilder movie which tells you all you need to know.

    [​IMG]

    2. Pillow Talk (1959)

    Probably most people's No1, a quintessential romcom that started the whole Day/Hudson pairing and includes great, funny performances and an entertaining mistaken identity plot that would be copied over and over again. Plus it has Thelma Ritter which is enough for any movie to be great.

    [​IMG]

    3. The Thrill of it All (1963)

    Doris and James Garner are another great pairing that was a big hit in 1963, when they also made Move, Over Darling. This one is very entertaining and has some hilarious moments when Doris becomes an overnight TV ad sensation and queen of soap/detergent empire. But how will her husband and family cope?

    [​IMG]picture hosting sites

    4. Romance on the High Seas (1948)

    Doris' first movie and the role that made her an overnight star. She is cute, bubbly and very funny as a fast-talking no nonsense girl pretending to be a high society lady on an ocean cruise to Rio. Jack Carson is another great partner Doris had and they made many of her early Warner Bros movies. It also features one of her signature songs, It's Magic.

    upload_2018-9-2_19-59-29.jpeg


    05. Storm Warning (1951)

    This one is a kind of an oddity. A film-noirish Ku Klux Klan drama is not exactly the type of movie you think of when you think of Doris Day, which is what makes it even more interesting. Plus the pairing of Doris and Ginger Rogers playing sisters, which I love, since I always thought they looked like sisters, especially early Doris from this era. There's also Ronald Reagan and the film noir regular Steve Cochran. While many have criticized the movie for it's sanitized representation of KKK, I was kind of shocked when I watched it cause it looked quite daring and disturbing for early 50s.

    [​IMG]

    06. Send Me No Flowers (1964)

    Back to comedies and this is the third and final Day/Hudson/Randall movie and another entertaining farce with Rock thinking he's got terminal illness which of course causes all sorts of misunderstandings and confusions in his marriage and life. Has a great title song as well.

    [​IMG]

    07. On Moonlight Bay (1951)

    Another early Doris vehicle, I would call it Warner Bros' answer to MGM's Meet Me in Saint Louse. A heart-warming, Americana fairytale about a small town Indiana family. Everything is cute, nice and enjoyable and it features another frequent Doris co-star during her Warners years - Gordon MacRae.

    [​IMG]

    08. Midnight Lace (1960)

    Hitchcockian Gaslight type of a thriller with Doris effective as a damsel in distress. Great supporting cast and a stylish look make this an entertaining viewing.

    [​IMG]

    09. Love Me or Leave Me (1955)

    Doris' first movie after she left Warners, grand MGM musical biopic with great performances, music numbers and production values. Many say this is her best dramatic performance. It's also one of her favorites. Plus she gets slapped real hard by Cagney in one scene.

    [​IMG]

    10. The Glass Bottom Boat (1966)

    One of 2 movies Doris made with Rod Taylor, by the end of her career, and certainly a better one. A bit silly but entertaining and with some great songs and supporting characters.

    10. With Six You Get Eggroll [1968]





    *It’s been many years, but I’m fairly certain the scene of Frank Sinatra’s characters' attempted suicide got a mention on Peyton Place, which is accolade enough for it to be included.

    @Karin Schill, I´m so surprised this movie won! One of the few I saw with her...Did you know that Mary Crosby starred in an 80´s TV remake?

    No I didn't know that Mary Crosby starred in a remake of it. I think it's a cool movie to win since it's not the type of move that you associate with Doris Day. ;)

    Okay so up next I figured it was a while since we had an actor:

    Gary-Oldman-Movies.jpg

    Gary Oldman is a British actor, script writer and director. He was born on March 21rd, 1958 in London, England. His father was a sailor and welder. He abandoned the family when Oldman was 7 years old. As a child he was interested in music and playing the piano. At age 16 he began working in a sports shop. Then he studied drama in college but was rejected by RADA who thought he should do something else for a living!


    Despite this he embarked on a carrier in the theatre in the late 1970s. In 1982 he did his film debut in a movie called "Remembrance". However he kept working mostly in the theatre in the early 1980s and was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company between 1985-1986. The movie Sid and Nancy (1986) made Hollywood take notice of him. So by the 1990s his movie career had brought him International stardom with movies such as JFK (1991). However it wasn't until this year when he won the Oscar for the movie Darkest Hour (2017).


    Over all he's done about 60 movies in his career so far. But which one is your favorite?


    Totals: In November.

    Thanks to @Emelee for suggesting this star. :)
