Editorial Reviews

For five successful seasons, superstar Doris Day starred in her own CBS-TV series, The Doris Day Show . For the first time, all three Christmas episodes (A Two Family Christmas, It's Christmas Time In The City, Whodunnit, Doris?) from the program are presented together, with the added bonus of a new audio commentary track by Doris herself!
Also featured are 1950s-1960s newsreels of Doris Day -- including Christmas footage -- not seen in decades; long-lost holiday broadcasts of The Doris Day Show radio series from 1952; a Doris Christmas photo gallery; original network promos for The Doris Day Show and a special Christmas greeting from Doris. You'll also hear Doris sing Silver Bells, Silent Night, Hark The Herald Angels Sing and other holiday favorites. So, bring the whole family together and share the warm and wonderful memories of Christmas with the warm and wonderful Doris Day!

What a great Christmas Gift from Doris

******The Extras********

Loved the montage of newsreel footage. Seeing Doris at different premiers. If you are a Doris Day collector this is worth the price of the set.

Commentary.

It's wonderful to hear Doris, unfortunately the person she is with does not have the greatest interviewing skills. Instead of speaking with her he speaks at her. He does not have a conversation with Doris, instead he makes comments about the show. Its obvious that a flood of memories are happening, but instead of tapping into them he sticks to facts about the show.

When you put Doris Day and Christmas Day together, you get one wonderful dvd, "Doris Day: Christmas Memories". This dvd features three of her Christmas shows from her Doris Day television show, "A Two Family Christmas" from 1969, "It's Christmas Time in the City" from 1970 and "Whodunnit Doris?" from 1971. In "It's Christmas Time in the City", we get to hear Doris comment on this particular Christmas show, and Miss Day is delightful as she recalls memories from this show 38 years ago!

There are also bonus features starting with Doris Day newsreel footage. This is so great! There are vintage films of Doris helping the Marines with Toys For Tots, as well as movie premieres of "Pillow Talk", "Midnight Lace" and "The Thrill of it All". They even show the old Coconut Grove, where award ceremonies were held.

This bonus section lets you listen to some of the Holiday highlights from the 1952 "The Doris Day Show" radio program. They show some Doris Day photos as you listen.

Next comes a music montage called "Silent Night", where you can enjoy Doris singing some beautiful Christmas music. Last they show some Doris Day Christmas tv promos and original sponsor bumpers for the Doris Day Show.

These are all lovely Christmas memories of Miss Day and especially enjoyable are Miss Day's commentaries on "It's Christmas Time in the City". Doris Day makes Christmas Day one very Happy Holiday!

This new DVD is a must-have, not only for Doris Day fans but for everyone who is inspired by the magic of the holiday season. These three episodes culled from the three holiday episodes of the CBS smash hit "The Doris Day Show" will have you grinning ear to ear.

"The Doris Day Show" ran on the Tiffany Network for five hugely popular years (1968 - 1973). There were three holiday-themed episodes (1969, 1970 and 1971) and they are combined in this fancy new release with lots of extras. For those who already own the five seasons of the series, this is still a must have since the extras alone make it worth its weight in gold. Foremost among them is new commentary by Miss Day as well as newsreels, audio, other clips and the opportunity to have this all together for a most affordable price tag.

Each holiday episode has its own merits. The 1969 episode brings Day and her television family (2 sons and her father) as well as her co-workers at Today's World, to her farm home for an old-fashioned Christmas. It is genuine, heartfelt and amusing. By the time of the 1970 episode, Day's character had relocated to a stunning apartment in San Francisco, over an Italian Restaurant run by Kaye Ballard and Bernie Koppell. She had also inherited a "Scrooge-like" neighbor, played by the beloved Billy DeWolfe. Her co-workers at the magazine (Rose Marie, Paul Smith and MacLean Stevenson) are again on-hand and the episode is very funny. The highlight for me, however, is Day's sparkling rendition of "Silver Bells". Her "pipes" are in amazing condition and as she did the previous year, at the conclusion of the episode she directly addresses the viewing audience to wish them a happy holiday. It is so real, honest and genuinely moving.

Format: Blu-ray
I have a fairly big collection of these types of videos, so I become somewaht critcal of their flaws and missed potential. This video is visually stunning. So much, that when I show my friends my Blu-ray player on my 67 inch screen, I use this Blu-ray as the example. You literally feel like you are inside the picture. Anyone who collects Blu-rays knows, just as with 1080i, there are good versions, real good versions & totally mind blowing versions. This is certainly visually mind blowing. The detail is incredible. I don't know if they filmed this with a special camera of what (I really don't care)but the results are awesome. The music was nice with a good variety, also.
Simply- if you like these types of videos, this is the best of the lot.
