Please Don't Eat the Daisies (1960)

Directed by Charles Walters.

Doris Day’s fluffy comedy is directed by Charles Waters based on writer Jean Kerr’s story about a drama critic (played by David Niven) and his family. (The playwright Jean Kerr was then married to the noted drama critic Walter Kerr).
 
Doris Day, then at the height of her stardom after “Pillow Talk” (1959), which also garnered her the first and only Best Actress nomination, sings the title tune, which was very popular outside the film’s context.
 
The supporting cast is excellent, especially Janis Page as a temperamental star, Oscar-winner Spring Byington as Doris Day’s mother-in-law, and Patsy Kelly as the housekeeper.
 
One of the top ten grossing films of 1960, the film made $5.3 million in domestic rentals
 
Running Time: 111 Minutes
 
End Note
 
The movie was so liked by the public that it later became a TV series.
