Every now and then, I check for Doris Day streaming movies because I have a hunch that Netflix is rotating them out. A few months ago, I saw that The Pajama Game was an option but after going to see a local production of the musical, I couldn't find it on instant streaming. But! There are two others - Move Over Darling and Do Not Disturb.
I always wake up early on weekends to let Lucy out and sometimes we stay up and sometimes we go back to bed. This weekend, I stayed up Saturday and watched Move Over Darling and Sunday I stayed up and put on Do Not Disturb.
|In "Move Over Darling," Doris Day plays Ellen Arden, a woman who is presumed dead five years after she goes missing in a plane crash. Her husband, played by James Garner, has moved on and marries a woman named Bianca the morning that Ellen is delivered to shore by the navy.|
Ellen's mother-in-law encourages her to go stop the honeymoon and then everything devolves into comedic chaos, of course!

Honestly, I didn't really like Do Not Disturb and lost interest in it when Doris' character went to Paris and got drunk and almost got taken advantage of by an antiques dealer and it was just meant to be funny, not disturbing. If you want to check it out, it's on Netflix here. The beginning was really cute and Doris even got to hold a little fox (that she mistook for a puppy) but once the story progressed, I just found it more and more disturbing. The relief to me is that Doris didn't want to do the movie... but her husband had power of attorney and signed her up for it. (That's disturbing, too.)
All in all, I think Doris Day is adorable and it's fun to cuddle with Lucy on early weekend mornings (we're talking 7am here!) and watch new-to-me movies.
