Pierre Patrick publishes his guide to Doris Day’s TV work “Que Sera Sera – The Magic of Doris Day Through Television”January 23, 2007 4 Comments
It’s easy to become complacent and overlook yet another Doris Day book, CD or DVD as everyone seems to be jumping on the bandwagon. This book however is what I call a “true” labour of love as it was the brainchild of someone I know to have a “genuine” appreciation for America’s sweetheart. That someone is French Canadian-born Pierre Patrick!
For those fans who keep a watchful eye out for all things Day related you will likely recall the article Pierre wrote for American magazine Television Chronicles about Doris’s TV sitcom and his interview with the star of the show – Doris Day.
‘QUE SERA SERA: The Magic of Doris Day Through Television’ is published by Bear Manor Media (USA). It features close to 200 B/W photographs and benefits from the penmanship of acclaimed Iowa-born writer Garry McGee (the man behind 2005’s Doris Day: Sentimental Journey). There is also a hilariously funny comic-strip spoof of her TV show character drawn by artist Angelo Torres (for Mad magazine), interviews with many of Doris’s sitcom co-stars and a cute foreword from Jackie Joseph. Oh, and did I mention even Doris gives an exclusive interview for the project!
Pierre’s book is an “ultimate companion” of amazing facts and trivia on her sitcom and the other significant television appearances she made. At the same time it gives a good appreciation for the other strings to her bow, touching on her classic films and albums etc. I’ve seen, read and enjoyed this book and would certainly say that if you are loving the sitcom DVDs you will definitely adore this book!Archive News, New Releases
