Germany released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C : it WILL NOT play on regular DVD player. You need Blu-Ray DVD player to view this Blu-Ray DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), German ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: American couple Mike and Janet Harper move to England for Mike's work, his company which deals in wool textiles and wool fashions. Despite Mike's want for them to live in a flat in the heart of London, Janet, who is not a big city girl, ignores his want and instead finds them a house to rent thirty miles outside of London in Kent, which means that Mike has to commute into town by train. This commute is not ideal for Mike, who often for convenience stays in one of the company's flats in town rather than go home. This commuting situation makes Janet feel even more neglected than she already did previously. Janet believes Mike may be taking his neglect to the next level by having an affair with his secretary quickly turned assistant, Claire Hackett. Janet's beliefs are fueled in part by the Harper's busybody landlady, Vanessa Courtwright, who thinks Janet can play Mike's game by entering into an affair of her own, whether it be real or made-up. It has the potential to be real with the arrival onto the scene of Frenchman Paul Bellari, an antiques dealer and decorator who Janet hires to decorate the house. Although neither Mike or Janet had any initial thoughts of cheating on the other, Claire and Paul may have thoughts of their own, especially when Claire with Mike, and Paul with Janet, are thrown into one compromising position after another, which in and of themselves could potentially break up the Harper's marriage regardless.

Right before the Christmas, 1965 release of "Do Not Disturb", Fox executive Richard Zanuck noted that the film's star, Doris Day was the only surefire actress at the box-office in Hollywood. Doris Day movies made money and the public flocked to see Miss Day whenever a new film was released. "Disturb" continued that pattern, earning 20th Century Fox a nice profit although not quite in the league of earlier and some latter Day films. Nevertheless, it kept Miss Day in the box-office top ten. The 1965 list, released right after this film's release, showed her the top female star at the box-office, placing third on the list.

"Do Not Disturb" is lightweight, harmless, amusing fluff. It is saved by some great production values including the cinematography of Oscar winner, Leon Shamroy, Miss Day's energetic performance and some of the most beautiful outfits the star has ever worn including a drop-dead gorgeous evening gown that clearly indicates that Miss Day was one of the silver screen's sexiest actresses.

Unfortunately the writing material given the gifted star doesn't give her the opportunities she deserves to shine as the skilled comic she has proven to be repeatedly. However, she makes the most of what is available.

The film represents her first on-screen teaming with Rod Taylor. They work well together although the chemistry they display the following year in MGM's hilarious "Glass Bottom Boat" isn't evidenced.

The opening credits are cute, the title song is catchy and rendered expertly by Miss Day. The supporting cast are all capable and features some of Hollywood's best veterans.

The plot about a American couple adjusting to life in London has been done to death previously.

It's wonderful to see, finally, this Doris Day comedy on DVD. The formula plays much like the 1963 "Move Over, Darling", but that formula works, and changing it up with new plot incidents, locales, stars and designs makes "Do Not Disturb" a vintage piece of delightful entertainemt. Day is so winning and acts with such effortless ease, that we go right along with the silly sitcom plot devices. In fact, we enjoy them because she brings reality to even the most hackneyed gags. As usual, Day is surrounded by acting and production pros who make the proceedings all the more enjoyable because we don't worry that any element of the film is going to fall apart. "Do Not Disturb" takes us to the far-off lands of England and France via 20th Century Fox's backlot, and wraps everything visual with great style. The costumes for Day are particularly lavish here, including a spectacular floor length, backless, sequined tangerine gown - which she fills with utterly delightful femininity. Rod Taylor is a fine co-star (he's even better with her in 1966's "Glass Bottom Boat"), Hermione Baddeley gets to glam it up as a genteel British countrywoman, and Sergio Fantoni makes a terrific romantic foil. Lots of fizzy fun, great cast and production make this a film that can be viewed repeatedly as the type of romantic comedy that simply could not be made any longer.

I've always felt that the pairing of Doris Day and Rod Taylor was as equally as good as that with James Garner or Rock Hudson, and much undervalued by the 'critics'! Somehow rugged Aussie He-Man Rod, and girl next door Doris, seemed like a perfect match, and they both had an appealing chemistry between them, you got the feeling they enjoyed each others company. 'Do Not Disturb' may not have been quite as good as their other film together [Glass Bottom Boat], but it was a lot better than most 'critics' paint it. A harmless piece of nonsense with some good laughs, and nice photography, it's what I'd class as a good 'no brainer' that you can sit back and watch after a hard day at work, and it's sure to relax you and put a smile on your dial! It's not a screen 'classic', but does what it intends to do, gives some good lighthearted entertainment, just by watching two pros strut their stuff. Rod, more remembered for his tough no nonsense action roles, has a suprisingly good flair for light comedy, and watching these two together, only makes me wish they'd teamed up for a couple more films.

Doris Day was among Hollywood's few truly bankable stars during the late 1950s and early 1960s, particularly noted for her comic talents in such frothy farces as PILLOW TALK, PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES, and THAT TOUCH OF MINK. Unfortunately, as the 1960s progressed her films did not, and although her films remained popular they were seen as increasingly out of touch with the tone of the times. The situation was not helped by Day's husband-manager Martin Melcher, who developed the habit of signing Day to film projects Day herself found uninspired. Such was the case with the 1965 flyweight comedy DO NOT DISTURB.

The play seems to be a grab-bag of ideas from previous Day films, the story of a pretty but slightly klutzy wife (Day) and a neglectful husband (Rod Taylor) who find themselves at romantic cross purposes courtesy of their landlady Vanessa (Hermione Baddeley), a sexy secretary (Maura McGiveney), and a handsome antiques dealer(Sergio Fantoni.) The roles are one-dimensional, the plot turns are predictable, and the dialogue trivial. Both Day and Taylor respond by overplaying, sometimes to the point of shrillness. Even so, they do manage to inject enough life into the film to make it mildly amusing--and the supporting cast is quite charming. When all is said and done, the film is most memorable for the sight of Doris Day in a brilliantly orange evening gown as she struggles on the dance floor to shake away an olive dropped down her back.

The DVD includes several bonus features, including an account of Day's early life and career, a brief biography of Michael Romanoff (who plays a cameo in the film), and a brief biography of composer Mort Garson (who is perhaps best remembered for the song "Our Day Will Come.
