Trivia

This film's earliest documented telecast took place in Tucson Friday 7 September 1956 on KDWI (Channel 9); it first aired in San Francisco Sunday 4 November 1956 on KRON (Channel 4), in Phoenix Thursday 13 November 1956 on KPHO (Channel 5), and in Los Angeles Sunday 23 December 1956 on KTLA (Channel 5). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were still in B&W. Most viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. In Honolulu it enjoyed its first colorcast Thursday 5 September 1957 on KHVH (Channel 13); in Philadelphia it was first offered a colorcast presentation Wednesday 27 January 1960. See more »

Goofs

During a montage showing Martha's rise to stardom, there's a shot of stacks of fan letters, all of them bearing the address of what turns out to be Martha's home address. Even in the far more innocent times in which the film was set, stars didn't publicly reveal their home addresses and virtually all fan mail would have been addressed to her movie studio or record label or simply "Hollywood."

Enjoyable...except for the unnecessary animated segment.
6 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Warner Brothers made two very, very similar films--one after the other and with the same two stars. In fact, they are so similar, I could easily see viewers confusing the two pictures. "My Dream is Yours" and "It's a Great Feeling" BOTH star Doris Day as a young woman hoping to be discovered and a fast-talking guy, Jack Carson, promises to make her a star. However, "It's a Great Feeling" is more of a comedy and "My Dream is Your Dream" is a bit more of a romance. Both are about equally good in my opinion.

Martha Gibson (Day) has a lovely voice--and Doug (Carson) is determined to try to get her on the radio. However, again and again, Doug is either unable to get her an audition or folks insist she must be a 'name' before they'll put her on the air. Eventually, Doug is able to get Martha a break--when Gary (Lee Bowman) shows up drunk for his show--and after that, her career takes off. But, one problem persists--she's a single mom and Doug insists on finding her the perfect man.

Towards the end of the film, there is an odd animated sequence where Bugs Bunny, Tweety and a bunch of birds appear. Even odder are Day's and Carson's outfits and choreography for this sequence. Unfortunately, the sequence falls flat, as there were much better live-action/cartoon hybrids from the period--such as with Gene Kelly dancing with Jerry Mouse or Esther Williams swimming with Tom and Jerry. This one in "My Dream is Yours" just seems pretty pointless and unnecessary. Fortunately, although this slows down the film and isn't needed, the acting and singing are good throughout the film and it is enjoyable and worth seeing. It won't change your life, but it's nice.
