Performers, Cast and Crew:
Television is fickle. A popular situation comedy of the late 1960s and early '70s, this wholesome family fare began following young widow Doris Martin (Doris Day) and her two young sons, Billy and Toby. At its start, the family had absconded from the congestion of San Francisco to live with Doris's dad Buck on his ranch, located just outside the city in Mill Valley; Doris had given up a career as a singer to make the move, and much of the show's humor came from her attempts to adjust to the unfamiliar country life. By the fourth season, however, the show had fully jettisoned this concept: Doris had relocated to San Francisco, embarked on a writing career, and was now (without explanation) a single woman living alone. This fifth and final season continues the urban girl's adventures in the hilly city. Other characters include Doris's editor Cy Bennett (John Dehner) and his secretary Jackie Parker (Jackie Joseph).
Description by First Look Home Entertainment:
After ranking as the world's top female motion picture star and achieving dozens of hit records, Doris Day also conquered television with this happy situation comedy on CBS-TV from 1968-1973.
The fifth and final year of THE DORIS DAY sees Doris Martin (Day) continuing as a reporter for Today's World magazine, working with editor Cy Bennett (John Dehner) and secretary Jackie Parker (Jackie Joseph). Doris finds her love life heating up with both Dr. Peter Lawrence (Peter Lawford) and political candidate Jonathan Rusk (Patrick O'Neal) while her home life is never dull thanks to her fussy landlord Mr. Jarvis (Billy DeWolfe). Among the guest stars who appear are Andy Griffith, Lee Meriwether, Ed Begley Jr., Julie Adams, Dick Van Patten, Sid Melton, Edward Andrews, Henry Jones and Bernie Kopell.
THE DORIS DAY SHOW SEASON 5 contains all 24 remastered episodes from the 1972-73 season, plus a wealth of rare and new bonus features.
