Movie Reviews

Fabulous special from A&E's "Biography" series...
jon sieruga | Redlands, CA USA | 02/27/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Longer than most, this Doris Day edition of "Biography" originally aired on 'Sweethearts' week with Susan Lucci hosting. Many have confused it with Doris's first movie, "Romance on the High Seas", since "It's Magic" was an alternate title. The special follows young Doris's rise as a teenage dancer in Ohio who was good enough to secure Hollywood backing--until a train accident left one of her legs in horrible shape. Recuperating in bed, Doris began to sing along with the radio and discovered a hidden talent--she had an uncanny ear and was a superb vocalist! There are no interviews with Doris herself, but Terry Melcher, her son who recently passed away, adds his comments, as do Kaye Ballard and biographer A.E. Hotchner (who tells us of DD: "She's like Greta Garbo--you'll never see her again"). Except for a brief phone interview on CNN after Ronald Regan died, Hotchner seems to be right. Relishing her privacy in Carmel, California, Doris is said to be happily surprised at how her music and movies have held up in popularity. If only she knew how much the entertainment world still needs her..."
This is a documentary, not a film

"Many of these reviews are written about a Doris Day movie. This is NOT a movie. Read the description--it's a documentary hosted by Peter Graves. It's an excellent documentary and any Doris Day fan would love it, but don't think it's a movie, 'cause it's not. :)"

"I Have learned a lot about the Doris Day i didn't know

Well researched and put together very enjoyable"

"A very detailed description of Doris Days life. Lots of good interviews, some with her son Terry and home movie footage of Doris on the beach and in her garden with her lovely dogs.

A must for any Doris Day fan, you wont regret it."
