On Blu-ray - David Hare is wiped out by Doris Day in her second film MY DREAM IS YOURS (Michael Curtiz, USA, 1949)

While still climbing her way to the top, Doris Day (above) in her second movie, My Dream is Yours  (1949) still under the steady stewardship of Michael Curtiz, here singing "Wicky Wacky Woo" (aka "Nagasaki") at a Hawaiian theme club "Dive". Jack Carson ever ready nearby to rescue her for better things. 

Pity he couldn't rescue her from some of the picture's disappointing score from Harry Warren and Ralph Blane. But the movie has Jerry Wald as producer, Curtiz directing her with a firm hand, a meaninglessly busy scenario and absolutely drop dead gorgeous three strip Technicolor. 

Another total wipeout from Warner Archive Blu-ray
