Editorial Reviews

This backstage showbiz saga was quickly put into production at Warners when Doris Day proved to be the breakout star of the moment in her first film, Romance on the High Seas. And although Doris has a basket of tuneful numbers and the movie itself boasts a crazy Bugs Bunny sequence, it has the look of something rushed into service. Doris spots the main chance when talent agent Jack Carson needs to replace his egotistical client, crooner Lee Bowman. Some conventionally enjoyable climbing-the-ladder scenes follow (which bear a resemblance to Doris Day's real-life struggles to catch on as a band singer, such as trouping while raising small child). Equally conventional, but less convincing, is a romantic contrivance to delay the inevitable Day-Carson pairing. The movie is awash in Technicolor, and director Michael Curtiz crams some wonderful vintage landmarks of Los Angeles into the picture: the Brown Derby restaurant, Schwab's Drugstore. The color also shows off Eve Arden's red hair, although her sardonic style requires no color enhancement. Martin Scorsese has acknowledged My Dream Is Yours as a key influence on his musical, New York, New York, and the unhappy romance and candy-colored photography give a hint why. And the Bugs Bunny thing is a live-action/cartoon blend (à la the Gene Kelly-Jerry the Mouse dance in Anchors Aweigh), directed by Friz Freleng, that puts Day and Carson in rabbit suits. That's the most inspired sequence, so be advised. --Robert Horton

The songs are also great to listen to.

It's a typical Doris Day movie, but she is so pretty and has such a great personality it makes for the kind of movie you want to see over and over.
Raymond F. Donahue
This fine musical has numerous very well done song and dance numbers and the plot moves along at a good pace.

Doris Day's second motion picture was entitled "My Dream is Yours" and it was released by the Brothers Warner in 1949. In a market filled with scores of film releases, it quickly found a place as a very popular drama with music. Reportedly it was one of filmmaker Martin Scorcese's favorite film memories and it's easy to see why.
Filmed in brilliant technicolor, "Dream" also boasts a first-rate cast who worked well under director Michael Curtiz who had also helmed Day's film debut the previous year.
Jack Carson, Lee Bowman, in a decidedly unsympathetic role, Eve Arden, Adolphe Menjou, Selena Royale, S.Z. Sakall, and even Franklin Pangborn, the very distinctive character actor whose career went back to early talkies, all leave lasting marks during the telling of this tale.
Carson, fed up with the temperemental shenanigans of his radio headliner Bowman decides to find and create a new star. Miss Day, as Martha Gibson, a newly war-widowed single mother, is the young gal he decides is ripe for stardom. He brings her to Hollywood, with help from friend Arden, auditions her only to find her falling in love with Bowman. Naturally everything comes to a happy and tuneful conclusion by the time the end credits role but not before the audience has had the opportunity to smile, laugh out loud, shed some tears and see evidence anew as to why Day became a major star so quickly. It's almost impossible to fathom that this is only her second film role, so effortless is her ability to switch from sunny smile and effervescent song to moving and heartfelt scenes of dramatic impact.

This is what musical comedies were supposed to be. A young, vivacious (mid 20's) Doris Day sparkles in her acting and, especially, her singing. The performance by Jack Carson shows him to have been more of an actor than he was generally given credit. However, Eve Arden all but steals the film with her sharp and well-delivered one-liners. This is pure enjoyment.

This is Doris Day's second film and she is just wonderfulin it playing Martha Gibson,a young single mother trying to break into radio as a singer. With the help of JackCarson, who is also excellent in the film, and Eve Arden, Doris goes through many hilarious episodes trying to get an audition. There are many fabulous standard songssuch as I'll String Along WithYou, You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby and Nagaski plus many new songs written for the film including the title song, Someone Like You,Tic Tic Tic and Wake Up, Freddy, the highlight of a warm and funny film in which Miss Day and Jack Carson dressup as bunnies and perform withBugs Bunny and Tweety Bird. This film is well directed byMichael Curiz and gives a young Doris Day a chance to dosome fine acting and sing verybeautifully.

My Dream Is Yours was designed to be a vehicle for up and coming star Doris Day--and it worked! This fine musical has numerous very well done song and dance numbers and the plot moves along at a good pace. The convincing acting impressed me, too.

The action starts when a snooty crooner named Gary Mitchell (Lee Bowman) refuses to resign a radio contract even though his agent Doug Blake (Jack Carson) worked mighty hard to get that contract for him. Gary even walks out on his agent--and the radio show when the old contract is up, thinking he can do better elsewhere. This leaves Doug is a huge jam as his employer Thomas Hutchins (Adolphe Menjou) and the radio show sponsor Felix Hofer (S.Z. Sakall) have no star for their radio show.

Doug and all are desperate; and Doug goes to New York City to find a new, fresh faced star for the radio show to replace Gary Mitchell. Hutchins and Hofer are so distraught they can only think of trying to get Gary back; but Doug is on a mission and he finds a young singer, Martha Gibson (Doris Day), to come to Hollywood with him.

Look for Eve Arden as Doug's friend Vivian Martin who inevitably gets stuck paying the tab as Doug tries everything to get Martha noticed and hopefully then on the radio show sponsored by Hofer. In addition, Doris Day as Martha Gibson sings a number of songs so beautifully it's obvious why she was a rising star!

What does happen to Martha? Will Doug get her on the show to replace Gary--Hofer doesn't even want to talk with Doug. Hutchins is also very skeptical; and Doug and Martha go everywhere else looking for work as a result. What happens when Doug discovers that Martha is a war widow with a young son to support? Martha also develops feelings for Gary--will she and Gary marry?

Format: VHS Tape
This film got me hooked on wanting to see more Doris Day films. Doris Day is a worker for a live record jukebox. Kind of like a vending machine. You put in a dime, select the tune you want to hear, and they put on a record for you. But Doris sings live instead out the speakers. Jack Carson hears the live tune. He is under pressure by Eve Arden to find a new singer. He is a talent scout. He likes the voice, but naturally can not see the girl. She is at another location, the Metropolis Music Company. Jack Carson talks to her through a microphone in the machine. Realizing he is a talent scout, she must find him and he must find her. In passing, they finally catch up and before you know it, she is on her way to Hollywood. She had to leave her son with Uncle Charlie for a while, for her big chance. Well, in Hollywood she is working and singing but just hasn't got that "big break". But Jack Carson has one more surprise for her. He brings her son, Freddie (Duncan Richardson) out to Hollywood to be with mommy and suddenly everything is fine again. That's just the beginning of this story. Now mom and child are going to live with Eve Arden. Now-gone landmarks can be seen. The Brown Derby Restaurant, Schwab's Pharmacy and the Hollywood Trolley. Grauman's Chinese Theatre is here. Bugs Bunny and Mel Blanc's voice makes a surprise appearance for the children. That's Sandra Gould who 17 years later played "Mrs. Gladys Kravitz #2" on the "Bewitched" tv series (1964-72).
