Welcome to the
"Doris Day"
Video Archive
Moments from the Past!
"Video Collection #1"

1.  After being away from the spotlight for many years, Doris returned
to television with a "delightful" weekly series, titled "Best Friends."  Each
week, she would feature a different "Guest Star" who would come to stay
at her house in Carmel, or she would happen to run into them, while out
running errands.  Her connection with each, and the story surrounding 
their appearance, would vary.  In addition to her "guests" she would
also talk about her pet foundation and feature segments with her friends
and associates in the animal field.  Plus there were many times, when a
musical selection of hers would highlight a particular animal story or
short film, which was "really nice!"  Sadly, her very first guest on the
program was Rock Hudson, in what would be is last appearance.
It's clear to see, that he wasn't feeling well, and so the first episode of
the series is really not typical of the "overall" essence of the show.
The rest of the episodes are much more lighthearted.


2.  During this particular episode of "Best Friends" Les Brown and the
other members of the band, stop by Doris' place for a visit!

3.  A lost dog, brings guest star Robby Benson to Doris' doorstep!

4.  On today's show, Doris relates the story of how her beloved pet, "Bigest"
came to be a part of her life.  While walking along the beach, enjoying the
waves of the ocean, Doris sings the song, "I give you my heart."

5.  While running an errand, Doris runs into her old friend, Joan Fontaine
who has just acquired a brand new puppy.  During this episode, the two ladies
visit, while the new puppy gets some lessons!  As the show draws to a close
Doris sings a song, devoted to horses.

6.  On this particular episode, Doris' dear friend, Denver Pile pays her a special
visit!  It's wonderful seeing the two of them together again!  After a tour
through the San Diego Zoo, with it's exotic wildlife, Doris sings the song,
"You are so beautiful."

7.  After her stagecoach is pulled over by a couple masked robbers, Doris' guest
Howard Keel comes to the rescue!

8.  During this very interesting episode, Doris visits the Monterey Bay Aquarium,
where we are treated to some really amazing ocean wildlife!  Afterwards, she visits
with her friend, Gretchen Wyler.

9.  Making a special appearance on the show, Mickey Gilley stops by Doris' home
in Carmel, for a wonderful visit.  As the show draws to a close Doris sings the
classic tune, "Wildfire" as a group of horses, play and run wild.

"Video Collection #2"

1.  During this particular episode, Doris features a wonderful segment on the subject
 of "search and rescue" dogs.  Which provides us with a really cute moment, when the
dog uncovers Doris, who is hidden inside this huge box!

2.  After being out of the spotlight for the past twenty years, Hollywood Insider,
presented a very brief update on Doris.

3.  Returning to Hollywood, Doris accepts the "Cecil B. DeMille" award at
the Golden Globes, which is simply splendid!  She looks wonderful!  And she
is very grateful for the honor.

4.  During a very special program, titled "Doris Day ~ A Sentimental Journey" we
are treated to an exceptional retrospective of the life and career of the talented
singer, dancer and actress!  From the very beginning, clear to the present.
Doris looks absolutely wonderful!  This is a wonderful program.

"Thank you"
for taking the time to read through these rather lengthy descriptions!  

I know it seems rather "incredible" to believe!  
All these moments from the past.
Moments that you might have missed recording.
And those that you have only heard about!

Throughout the years, I've
shared many of these clips from my collection
with my friends, and they have always been astounded by all the appearances
that I was able to record.  To ensure the highest quality possible, I use a "dual deck"
vcr when I'm sharing any of these moments from my collection.
I look forward to hearing from you!
