THE DORIS DAY COLLECTION OF 6 FILMS
This 3 Double DVD Box Set contains six separate Films together in a 6 Disc Box Set.
Young At Heart
...A classy music score of Frank Sinatra recordings highlights this charming, whimsical TV movie. Olympia Dukakis shines as a recently widowed matriarch of a middle-class Italian family from New Jersey who, in the middle of the night, hears a mysterious voice she swears is her idol, Frank Sinatra, telling her to get on with her life. Discovering her husband gambled away their home, she decides to open a restaurant in order to pay off the debt, but runs into trouble when a local mobster demands payment. Her family, friends and even Ol' Blue Eyes himself (in a cameo appearance) come to her rescue. Dukakis steals the show in this heart-warming drama smartly directed by Allan Arkush and executive produced by Tina Sinatra, Frank's adoring daughter. Supporting players Joe Penny (from TV series Jake and the Fatman), Louis Zorich (Dukakis's real-life husband) and Philip Bosco all enliven the proceedings...
Lover Come Back
...A Romantic comedy that features Doris Day and Rock Hudson as two Madison Avenue advertising rivals. Jerry (Rock Hudson) uses unethical means for securing accounts while Carol (Doris Day) lures clients with her charm and knowledge. Annoyed by Jerry's methods, Carol tries to get him thrown out of his profession, but when he steals a client out from under her nose, revenge propels her to infiltrate his secret campaign...
...the uninhibited story of a carefree bachelor, a carefree career girl and the hilarious things that happen when they tangle. Rock Hudson is Brad Allen a songwriter and notorious playboy. Doris Day is Jan Morrow, a "pert" interior decorator. Together they share a party line over which they develop an intense dislike for one another. But when Brad eventually matches Jan's voice to her face and figure, the events that follow in this romantic comedy succeed in giving new meaning to the phrase "All's fair in love and war"...
The Thrill Of It All
... At a dinner party, Beverly Boyer (Doris Day), wife and mother of two, tells the manufacturer of Happy soap about her experiences with his product. Charmed by her spontaneous appearance he offers her a chance to tell her story in his commercials. Beverley accepts and she quickly turns from housewife into famous television personality, much to the dismay of her neglected husband, Carl...
Send Me No Flowers
...Rock Hudson stars as a hyper-hypochondriac who's convinced he's dying. Doris Day plays his put-upon wife and Tony Randall is the friend and neighbour who takes the news of Hudson's impending "demise" very badly. It's sophisticated stuff, the last of the Day/Hudson collaborations, shot through with a mordant wit that may chime better with today's audience than it did with movie-goers back in the 1960s. Paul Lynde is hysterical as a cemetery plot salesman, and there are telling performances from Edward Andrews and big Clint Walker. Hudson was invariably under-rated as a performer, but here he's excellent, lending grace to a difficult role and imbuing his character with sly, winning humour...
It Happened To Jane
...Jane Osgood (Doris Day) is a single mum working in the live lobster business. But when a big order for the Marshall Country Club turns up dead, it kills her chances of a successful season. Discovering budget cuts at the railroad are to blame, she turns to George Denham (Jack Lemmon) to seek compensation from the railroad's tyranical owner, Malone (Ernie Kovacs). The press has a field day with this modern day David and Goliath story and the whole country turns to Cape Anne, Maine, to watch as one woman stands up to the meanest man in the world.....
