TCM Greatest Classic Films: Legends - Doris Day (4FE)
ROMANCE ON THE HIGH SEAS (1948), CALAMITY JANE (1953), LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME (1955), PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES (1959) CALAMITY JANE (1953) Day and Howard Keel fuss, feud and fall in love as Calamity Jane and Wild Bill Hickok in this entertainment mother lode. At first curvaceous Calamity is too durned busy fighting Indians and cracking a bullwhip to pay mind to such girly what-alls as dresses and perfume. And Wild Bill is too danged busy wooing a dainty chanteuse (Allyn McLerie) to give a hoot about a hotheaded tomboy. But things change in a rootin', tootin' big way when each becomes love's target. INCLUDES: Premiere and Awards Newsreels Languages: English & FranÃ§ais Subtitles: English, FranÃ§ais & EspaÃ±ol (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled). LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME (1955) Roaring '20s songstress Ruth Etting had everything â€“ the looks, the wiles, the smoky jazz voice, the it. She also had Chicago racketeer Martin "The Gimp" Snyder (James Cagney) who, even as he propelled her career, [mistreated or undermined] her. Laced with Day's vibrant performances of songs from the era, this 1955 Academy AwardÂ® winner (Best Motion Picture Story) is based on the tough-minded tale of Etting's life with the man who boosted her career with strong-armed tactics and smothered her in an obsessive grip that she escaped only at great peril. INCLUDES: 3 Vintage Shorts â€“ A Modern Cinderella, Roseland and A Salute to the Theatres Languages: English & FranÃ§ais Subtitles: English, FranÃ§ais & EspaÃ±ol (Main Feature. Bonus Material/Trailer May Not Be Subtitled). PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES (1959) Kate Mackay (Day) has four boys who someday may lend their names to hurricanes. Also, a monstrosity of a country fixer-upper that needs its lower fixed too. And a poison-pen, drama-critic hubby (David Niven) who sees plays under the worst possible circumstances â€“ by being in the audience. With Janis Paige, Spring Byington and Richard Haydn on hand for snappy comic support, Please Don't Eat the Daisies is breezy family fun.

Now, the Muppet-loving trio must reunite Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and their friends to stage the greatest Muppet telethon ever and save their beloved theater. The gang is back together again in a must-own movie full of irresistible music and family fun. Bring home the biggest Muppet adventure ever on Disney Blu-ray(TM) and DVD! Movies attempting to retrieve cherished nuggets of pop culture often stumble, either by appealing solely to the die-hard minutia enthusiasts or clunking up the batter with unnecessary additions to the base material. (Enough with the human love triangles, get to the giant robots fighting.) Thankfully, this revival of Jim Henson's beloved characters gets the formula delightfully right, providing a googly-eyed nostalgia trip for adults while also retaining the original's sense of bright (and mildly subversive) wonder. All that's missing is a ca...
