Editorial Reviews

Tammy and the Bachelor: Academy Award nominee Debbie Reynolds stars in this romantic comedy, the first feature in the delightful Tammy series. Meet young Tammy, a homespun Mississippi gal who, in the course of her first extraordinary adventure, teaches a sophisticated bachelor (Leslie Nielsen) about love, an uptight Southern town about fun, and a modern family about happiness. Tammy Tell Me True: The adventures of Tammy continue in college, where the worldly-wise small-town gal helps a broken-hearted artist paint a happy future, teaches a haughty heiress that the Golden Rule is more precious than gold, and finds true love with a shy, handsome young professor. Golden Globe winner Sandra Dee proves that Tammy is more than just another fish out of water in this charming and touching comedy. Tammy and the Doctor: Sandra Dee returns as the irrepressible Tammy in the enchanting third feature. It’s fun at a fever pitch as Tammy turns “nurse” in Los Angeles, hilariously turning a hospital upside down, treating patients with homemade brews and potions and, of course, falling in mad love with a handsome young surgeon (Peter Fonda).

5.0 out of 5 stars "Tammy, Tammy, Tammy's in love...." And on DVD!! November 9, 2007
"Tammy and the Bachelor" is the best of the "Tammy" series, with wonderful and very entertaining performances by its stellar cast, including the energetic Debbie Reynolds, who not only entertains the viewer with her role as the backwoods Tammy Tyree, but also actually becomes her! Debbie Reynolds also had notable success with the movie's theme song, "Tammy" (better known as "Tammy's in Love)." One of the most memorable scenes to me is of Tammy performing as a Southern lady tour guide and gives a wonderful and sentimental performance that you won't forget! Also notable is Fay Wray as Pete's mother, Mrs. Brent and Mildred Natwick as the eccentric Aunt Renie, artist and cat lover extrodinaire! "Tammy and the Bachelor" is followed by three sequels, with Sandra Dee taking on the part of Tammy Tyree in "Tammy, Tell Me True" and "Tammy and the Doctor," and then Debbie Watson as Tammy Tarleton in 1967's "Tammy and the Millionaire," which is sadly missing from this set. Though all three movies included her in this set are enjoyable and entertaining in their own way, "Tammy and the Bachelor" is a true classic movie gem and should not be missed! The three "Tammy" movies collected here are a welcome addition to any classic movie dvd library and will add a nice touch of '50's innocent whimsy to your classic romantic comedy dvd collection! It's great to finally see these wonderful titles getting the dvd treatment!

"Tammy and the Bachelor" (1957)
Sentimental and sugary late `50's comedy with wonderful performances throughout, "Tammy and the Bachelor" is one of those movies that you simply cannot help but enjoy watching again and again! The plot involves a handsome, young man who has just crashed his plane in some backwoods swamp.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Deal on Three Sweet Movies February 16, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This has been a great year for Ross Hunter on DVD. In addition to the Lana Turner melodrama double feature, Universal now gives us three comedies for a low price in this set. All three "Tammy" films made from 1957-63 are included. If you are looking for some family entertainment or an evening of nostalgia, this set is for you.

Taken chronologically, the first film "Tammy and the Bachelor" was released in 1957. Producer Hunter borrowed Debbie Reynolds, who was under contract to MGM, to play Tammy Tyree (short for Tambey which means immortal). This was a big A-budget film in Technicolor and CinemaScope. I am sure he knew that if he didn't have a "Tammy", he didn't have a movie.

Reynolds is a delight as the truth-telling, blunt river girl who finds herself sharing lodgings with the Brent family. Leslie Nielson is the very handsome pilot who crashes a plane in a swamp and is rescued by Tammy and her grandfather (Walter Brennan). A lot of viewers seem to remember that the Brents were rich, but they actually didn't have much money. Son Peter (the "Bachelor" of the title) was trying to find a way to make the land pay for itself. The only income the family had was from the tourist trade who visited their mansion each year. When Grandpa is thrown in jail by the revenuers, Tammy hitchhikes with her goat Nanny to BrentWood.

Most of the story is taken up with fish out of water scenes, but this is the type of comedy that Reynolds excels in. The supporting cast is excellent, with fine turns by Fay Wray, Mildred Natwick, Sidney Blackmer, Phil Ober, and Mala Powers.

Reynolds especially impresses in a sincere scene at the tourist gathering where she "improvises" a story about the dress she is wearing and her arrival at the house in the previous century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally!!! February 6, 2008
It's finally here!!! I was so excited when I came across this movie collection. I love these movies and have tried to find it everywhere and all I could find were used VHS copies. So, when I found this one, I didn't even wait a day to buy it. All of these movies are great. In the first movie, Debbie Reynolds does an amazing job as Tammy Tyree. In the second and third movies, Sandra Dee takes over the role of Tammy and it works perfectly. Quite often, when a main character is switched, you can spend the entire movie omparing the two different actresses. This is not the fact with these movies. Both actresses did a terrific job bringing the character to life. These movies are a terrific addition to any movie collection and perfect for the whole family.

5.0 out of 5 stars delightful viewing! March 11, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What a delight it is to see the Debbie Reynolds charmer TAMMY AND THE BACHELOR finally on DVD, packaged with the two sequels starring Sandra Dee (TAMMY TELL ME TRUE and TAMMY AND THE DOCTOR).

While Sandra Dee made the character of Tammy one of her most fondly-remembered, it's Debbie Reynolds who truly owns the role. In the classic original TAMMY AND THE BACHELOR (filmed in 1957 and based on the book by Mrs Cid Ricketts Sumner), we first meet Tambrey "Tammy" Tyree, the backwoods girl who falls in love with handsome Peter Brent (Leslie Nielsen) after his plane crashes near her home. When her grandfather is arrested for bootlegging, cow-eyed Tammy follows Peter back to his family estate, where her rustic, homespun values get her into a mess of trouble. The movie is best-known for it's Academy Award-nominated song ("Tammy") written by Jay Livingston, sung over the main titles by the Ames Brothers, and later reprised in the film itself by Debbie Reynolds. The cast also boasts Mildred Natwick, Fay Wray, Walter Brennan and Mala Powers.

TAMMY TELL ME TRUE was released a few years later in 1961. With Debbie Reynolds unable to reprise the role, Universal contract starlet Sandra Dee took over for the continuing adventures of Tammy. Wanting to experience a proper education, Tammy takes her houseboat down the river and enrols at Seminola College. There, she warms the heart of crusty widow Mrs Annie Call (Beulah Bondi) and falls head over heels for teacher Mr Freeman (John Gavin). Look closely for Dee's "Imitation of Life" costar Juanita Moore; plus Julia Meade and Virginia Grey.

Finally in TAMMY AND THE DOCTOR (1963), Sandra Dee returns as Tammy, with her object of affection (the doctor of the title) played by an up-and-coming Peter Fonda.
