    Former President Reagan the Actor (Non political intent)

    I always thought him to be very good in "The Winning Team" opposite Doris Day. It's the story (somewhat altered) of Grover Cleveland Alexander and very well done. Both stars give good performances and have a real chemistry. (This was made after their dating days).

    Jeanette MacDonald/Nelson Eddy fans REJOICE !!!!

    I wish they'd release it with the sepia portion intact. In light of the fact that it was the number one moneymaking film (worldwide) of 1937, according to Variety, it warrants an appropriate release with the sepia.

    A Few Words About A few words about...™ The Glass Bottom Boat - in Blu-ray

    The "missing" Doris Day movie!

    I saw it with my family at Radio City Music Hall in August, 1968, during its first week. It broke all records and even as a barely teen, I laughed. I thought the sleeping potion scene was one of the funniest things I'd ever seen and the 6,000 people in the audience, seemed to agree. I also...
