DORIS DAY: A SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY REVIEWED
“Doris Day: A Sentimental Journey” is an older documentary presented on DVD with the cleanest transfer I’ve ever seen. It’s the usual kind of talking head piece that you’d expected to see on A&E or PBS. What makes it great is how many of the celebs that were still alive to talk at the time. I’m not a big fan of Day’s work, but it’s interesting to see a woman’s career change from the Golden Age of Hollywood to the present. Plus, I totally respect her charitable work with animals.
If you’re a fan, your mileage with the film will go a long way. Everyone else will probably just give it a quick viewing.

The Plot Thus Far
One of the brightest and most beloved stars in Hollywood history, DORIS DAY began her legendary career as a Big Band singer in the 1940s before famed film director Michael Curtiz signed her to Warner Brothers where she made her motion picture debut in 1948 with Romance On The High Seas and performed the Oscar-nominated classic It’s Magic.
DORIS DAY became box-office magic throughout the 1950s and 1960s, ultimately becoming America’s most popular actress with movies such as Calamity Jane, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Love Me Or Leave Me, The Pajama Game, Please Don’t Eat The Daisies and The Thrill Of It All. Teaming with Rock Hudson for a trio of big screen comedies earned Doris an Oscar nomination for the iconic Pillow Talk.
A Grammy Award Lifetime Achievement recipient, Doris’ hit records include Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be), Secret Love, When I Fall In Love, Everybody Loves A Lover and Sentimental Journey. In the late 1960s, Day moved to television with the top ten series The Doris Day Show followed by music specials in the 1970s and Doris Day’s Best Friends in the 1980s. After retiring from show business, Day has devoted the past few decades to her first love with The Doris Day Animal Foundation.
DORIS DAY – A SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY details the actress-singer’s dramatic life story and career highlights, guided by Doris along with famous friends (Betty White, Clint Eastwood) and admirers (noted film critics Roger Ebert and Molly Haskell). Also featured is rare footage and archival materials from Day’s personal collection.
