Doris's Day

This is the first time I write a comment about a film. Considering that my favorite films, since I discovered the movies, are by Scorsese, Gonzalez Inarritu, Polanski, etc. What am I doing selecting a Doris Day comedy for my first review. Okay, let me tell you. I was overwhelmed by the sheer brilliance of the lady. I've always heard about Doris Day but I had never seen her (The Man Who Knew Too Much is my next one). She is extraordinary because in the midst of all the zaniness there is an unquestionable truth. I believed completely in her character I never thought for a moment she was trying to sell me something. I recognized her, I knew who her character was and then, of course, I laughed, loud and hard. So the reason that I've selected "The Thrill Of It All" as my first review is because that's what cinema is all about. Surprises and discoveries. Thank you Doris Day, you've given me something new to look forward to.

A pointed satire in the guise of a 60s glossy comedy

An immensely enjoyable movie. Doctor's wife Doris Day is suddenly TV's "it" girl when she starts appearing in soap commercials. Domestic mayhem ensues. Husband James Garner is none too happy and Day finds juggling home-life, work-life and instant celebrity pretty difficult. It's a pointed satire in the guise of a 60s glossy comedy directed with a very sure hand by Norman Jewison and written by the great Carl Reiner (with an assist from Larry Gelbart). Day is terrific and has plenty of chemistry with Garner. The colorful supporting cast includes Arlene Francis, Edward Andrews, Zasu Pitts as a daffy housekeeper and Reginald Owen as Day's chief benefactor. Reiner himself pops up in a series of cameos that get progressively more ridiculous. Russell Metty provided the high gloss cinematography.

An Often Overlooked Gem from Doris Day...

Doris Day made a lot of movies that were a lot better than people knew and so many of them went practically unnoticed. A prime example was the 1963 comedy THE THRILL OF IT ALL, which starred Doris as Beverly Boyer, the wife of a doctor (James Garner), who, quite accidentally, becomes a television spokesperson for a product called "Happy Soap" and becomes an overnight celebrity much to the consternation of her husband. Day is at the height of her charm here as she is completely winning as the housewife thrown into the celebrity spotlight and doesn't really know how to handle it. Garner matches her note for note as the slightly chauvinistic husband who would rather have his wife at home. There is also a lovely supporting turn by Arlene Francis as a friend of Doris' who Doris actually helps to give birth in a cab and Carl Reiner (who also co-wrote the screenplay) has an amusing set of cameos as the star of the show where Happy Soap is advertised. A warm family comedy that showcases brilliantly why the world loved Doris Day...and still does.
