Warner Home Video USA to release in March 2012 a new Doris Day DVD boxset “TCM – Greatest Classic Legends”

January 1, 2012 1 Comment

With standard definition DVDs becoming less and less individually valuable, studios are opting to re-package their most popular catalogue titles into multi-disc sets without the premium price tag that used to be associated with a boxset. A fine example of this ever growing trend came about after the partnering of two American giants Warner Home Video with Turner Classic Movies. This resulted in a series of four-film ‘Region 1’ DVD sets under the guise of “TCM Greatest Classic Legends”.

Due out on the 13 March 2012 are three new sets from Warner/TCM which include one dedicated to darling Doris Day, Katharine Hepburn and Gangsters.

The new Doris Day set offers fans on a budget a wonderful array of pictures. These include her debut ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS (1948), the much loved musical-western CALAMITY JANE (1953), the dramatic biopic LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME (1955) and fun family comedy PLEASE DON’T EAT THE DAISIES (1960).

    Miss Doris as Mrs. Robinson? HmmmDoris Day would have been more shocking to auedcneis at the time, but even though I do like her, especially in those comedies with Rock Hudson, I’m not sure she could have brought to the role what Anne Bancroft did. Not to mention, it would have destroy Doris Day’s image, which was no doubt important to her, at least in a commercial sense.She was probably wise to pass.It’s like Robert Mitchum turning down Patton. He admitted he couldn’t pull it off, but recommended George C. Scott who went on to win the Oscar. No regrets.
