Day Dreams
8 August 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the best of Doris Day's early Warner Brothers films is My Dream Is Your's. In this one she's a World War II widow with a young son who is also a singer looking for a big break in radio.

In a sense My Dream Is Your's was dated before it hit the theaters in 1949. That thing known as television was starting to spread across the land and someone looking for a break in radio that year would have had to have one's head examined. As many of radio's top personalities were moving to television, there were more opportunities in radio than ever before.

This film was done at the tail end of radio as it ended its thirty year run as an entertainment media. It took several years for radio to redefine itself as a news/entertainment media that it is today. Still the plot is a nice one.

Doris has two men to choose from here, an egotistical radio singer that makes the ladies swoon as Frank Sinatra did played by Lee Bowman and a talent agent who discovers Day and sticks with her played by Jack Carson.

Some of Doris's finest words of praise about her co-workers in her memoirs were written about Jack Carson. This part may have been closer to the real Carson than the usually egotistical blowhards Carson took a patent out on in Hollywood. Doris went out with him a few times in her early days at the studio and she describes him as a sweet, kind, lovable man who unfortunately drank a little too much. Her scenes with Carson show the real affection she had for him though.

Harry Warren made a return visit to the studio where he wrote so much lasting movie music in the Thirties. He wrote the title song which sold a few platters for Doris back in the day(no pun intended) and a few other new songs. Several of his old songs got into the film as well they should because the studio owned them already. One was a nice ballad called I'll String Along With You that Dick Powell introduced and Doris sang as a lullaby to her son. That record also sold pretty well for her. The new songs had lyrics by Ralph Blane.

Jack Warner, not to be outdone by Louis B. Mayer, got a couple of his animated stars to appear in My Dream Is Your's with Day and Carson the same way Jerry Mouse danced with Gene Kelly in Anchors Aweigh. It's done in a very charming child's dream sequence and not to be missed by animation fans of that wascally wabbit known as Bugs Bunny.

My Dream Is Your's also boasts one fine set of character players, as good as you'll find in any film. You can never go wrong with a film that has Adolphe Menjou, S.Z. Sakall, Eve Arden, and Edgar Kennedy all at their finest. This was in fact the farewell film for Edgar Kennedy and you can see how ill he is in his scenes as Doris's uncle.

Maybe if My Dream Is Your's had been done a year later we would have been talking about Carson getting Day a break on television. But the film would have been just as good.
