| Doris Day, Who Saved Warner Brothers -- AWOL
For years, Warner Brothers had to borrow stars from other studios in order to produce musicals. In 1948, they borrowed Judy Garland from MGM for the splashy musical, "Romance On The High Sears," but Miss Garland was not "able" to do the picture. Then, they borrowed Betty Hutton from Paramount, but she became pregnant and had to bow out. A happy accident occurred when Sammy Cahn and Jules Styne brought a young band singer (Doris Day) to see director, Michael Curtiz ("Mildred Pierce," "Casablanca," "Yankee Doodle Dandy," etc.), who finally found a star on par with the MGM musical greats.

This documentary on Warner Brothers shows what happened after Doris Day didn't adhere to the "new image" Hollywood took on during the sexual revolution and the advent of the drug culture. Day was scorned for her "clean image" and in years to follow, was ignored in documentaries like this one about WB, a studio she helped save from extinction. People who contributed less to the studio were included here, of course, and treated like THEY were more significant to the studio than Doris Day ever was. This makes the producers of this "piece" look petty and probably drugged out.

None of the stars featured in this show were bigger than Doris Day, who remains, to this day, the top female box office star of all time. Box office. Isn't that the goal of every actor, if they want a career in films?
