Product Description

Doris Day Collection Vol. 2 (DVD)

Amazon.com

Doris Day fans will be dizzy with pleasure over The Doris Day Collection, Volume 2. This package of six Warner Bros. films covers the early phase of Day's movie career, including her debut picture, and is actually better and more of-a-piece than Warners' previous Day set. The box doesn't include anything from the later Rock Hudson stage of her career: This is the former Doris von Kappelhoff in full youthful sparkle, with her tomboyish attitude and freckled perkiness (and skillful singing, which is showcased in each film).

Her 1948 debut, Romance on the High Seas, actually presents Day in a different light from her subsequent well-scrubbed image. (Maybe this is what co-star Oscar Levant meant when he later quipped, "I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin.") She's a sassy, hep-talking band singer, drawn into an unlikely (and extremely silly) plot involving confused identity during a South American cruise. Michael Curtiz might not be a comedy director, but the script is fun and there's no mistaking the spectacle of a star being born.

The follow-up, My Dream Is Yours, returns Curtiz and leading man Jack Carson in a tale that has some parallels to Day's real life: she's a singer with a young child, looking for her breakthrough. The movie's a serviceable but humdrum backstage story with great vintage locations, and Bugs Bunny appears in a surreal dream sequence. The Technicolor shines here, as it does through much of the set; the only black-and-white film is I'll See You in My Dreams, an enjoyably low-key biopic of lyricist Gus Kahn (Danny Thomas), who wrote so many of the signature tunes of the 1920s. A great score ("Makin' Whoopee," "It Had to Be You") help this one past the conventions of the composer biopic; Doris plays Kahn's alpha-female wife.

Day's rising popularity was confirmed with the success of On Moonlight Bay and By the Light of the Silvery Moon, a pair of old-timey musicals based on Booth Tarkington's "Penrod" stories. Nostalgia for the WWI era runs high in these sugary confections, with Doris paired with Gordon MacRae and a batch of vintage tunes. The strong ensemble and the backlot re-creation of a bygone era are almost impossible to resist.

By her own account, Day was exhausted by her Warners contract at the time of Lucky Me, the latest film (1955) in this set. The lame showbiz story indicates as much, with Doris stranded in Miami and coming to the attention of composer Bob Cummings. The widescreen CinemaScope process gives some oomph to the musical numbers, and if Day herself was exhausted it doesn't show; America's sweetheart never failed to turn on the high beams, and it's easy to see why the moviegoing public needed her to twinkle. --Robert Horton

She has always loved Doris Day movies and since they are rarely on tv she is now able to watch them at her leisure.

Two years ago Warners released "The Doris Day Collection" which quickly became a best seller. It contained some choice Day films from the 50's and 60's and reacquainted a lot of people with the wide-ranging talents that Doris Day possesses. There was a reason she reigned as the top box-office female star in history, a title she holds to this day. Volume 2 contains 6 more reasons why Doris Day still has that unique ability to make audiences feel warm, content, happy, and very satisfied.

Included in this collection is Day's screen debut, 1948's "Romance on the High Seas". It's a gorgeous technicolor treat - a throwback to an era when movies were designed to entertain and it succeeds gloriously. Miss Day introduces the classic song, "It's Magic" and while not first-billed, steals the show from Jack Carson (the first of three successive teamings), Janis Paige, S.Z. Sakall and a great cast. It's a case of mistaken identity, but what is most memorable is the ease with which Miss Day seems to acquit herself on film. She's a natural - funny, real, and gorgeous. There's a bit of the late Betty Hutton in her performance but ultimately she proves herself to be one of a kind.

The rest of the titles each have their high points. "My Dream is Yours" has lots of grit in this variation of "A Star is Born" with Day's star rising and for good reason. My favorite song is her heartfelt rendition of "I'll String Along With You" - flawless. Other highlights include a sequence in which she and Carson team with Bugs Bunny.

"I'll See You in My Dreams" is the wonderful bio of lyricist Gus Kahn and contains a trunkload of classic tunes sung perfectly by Day, co-star Danny Thomas and Patrice Wymore in a knockout performance.

THE DORIS DAY COLLECTION: VOLUME 2, from Warner Home Video, has six of Miss Day's earliest and most enjoyable musical romances. Five were filmed in a square TV ratio, while the sixth is in CinemaScope. And five are in brand-new Technicolor, while a sixth is in B&W.

ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS (1948)--Doris' feature film debut is in eye-blinding Technicolor and set on a Caribbean cruise with mistaken identity. Georgia Garrett (Doris) poses as Mrs. Elvira Kent on the ship, while the real Elvira (Janis Paige) stays home to spy on her maybe philandering husband. Georgia is wooed by Jack Carson, while Mr. Kent (Don DeFore) hires someone to spy on the real Elvira, who is presumably on the same ship but isn't. Oscar Levant is wonderful. Michael Curtiz directed a witty script by the Epstein Brothers and I.A.L. Diamond. Cameos include Franklin Pangborn and Grady Sutton. Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn songs include the classic "It's Magic". It must have been a hit even in 1948 because it is sung three times. This is an absolutely wonderful movie. Bonuses include a theatrical trailer, a musical short, and a Tweety & Sylvester short.

MY DREAM IS YOURS (1949)--Michael Curtiz directs again and Jack Carson (Doug Blake) again is the romantic male lead for Doris as singer Martha Gibson. When arrogant singing star Lee Bowman acts like a prima donna one too many times, Doug fires him and becomes agent to Martha, who becomes a popular and likeable radio singer. Wonderful supporting cast of pros includes S. Z. Sakall, Eve Arden, and Adolphe Menjou, with cameos by Franklin Pangborn, Edgar Kennedy, and Bugs Bunny! Harry Warren and Sammy Cahn songs include "My Dream is Yours" and "Someone Like You." This is another brilliant Technicolor production.

Six new to DVD Doris Day movies!!!! Hooray!!!! If Doris is in it, it is top notch entertainment! I've seen them all, and love them all. That sparkle was there with her first movie, Romance On The High Seas! Yes, there are more DD movies to (eventually) come out on DVD, but let's be happy with these jewels! Maybe this means another set is on the horizon!

If you've ever seen 'On Moonlight Bay' and 'By the Light of the Silvery Moon' then you know that this set is complete with just those two films....in my opinion at least.

The same cast from 'Moonlight' returns again in 'Silvery Moon' and the ensemble are just so fun together that you'll wish they had made a third, forth, etc. in the series!

Mary Wickes, always a hoot, is the ornery sidekick/housecleaner/maid (as usual),

Billy Gray...is hilarious as Doris' little brother, with his wild/vivid imagination.

Gordon McCrea is Doris' love interest in both films.

Those are the standouts to me...but you should watch them and see what you like best. If you enjoy light-hearted, clean, fun, family oriented films...both of these are for you!!

I can't wait to see the other 4 films, which I've heard of, but not seen yet!

To add to all the previous reviews, this set really showcases the phenomenal talents of Doris Day. Each dvd in this set proves that she is one of the greatest talents of our time. What I'd like to emphasize here is the extraordinary job that Warner Home Video has done remastering each one of these films. The results are georgeus and totally flawless. It proves that when the right effort is made to do this task well, the results can be spectacular...I've never seen a better quality product!

The size & thickness of the boxset
The box set contains "slim line" cases. However, If you purchase the titles individually, the cases are the thick "clamshell" type.
