"Charade" it isn't

As a production, "Caprice" is slick and colorful. As a film, it is muddled; the characters seems to be changing sides every five minutes or so, and the tone wavers clumsily from (relatively) serious spy thriller to slapstick comedy. Films like "Charade" have gotten that balance right, but "Caprice" misses the target. And at the risk of sounding unoriginal, I also have to point out that Richard Harris is miscast in the Cary Grant / Rock Hudson type of role. On the other hand, the film (which predates "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" by two years) does have a good ski chase, and one mind-bendingly "meta" sequence in which Doris Day goes to a movie theater to watch...."Caprice", with Doris Day and Richard Harris! ** out of 4.

Memories from the SET!

A SUPER title for a film! Many have slammed this film. Doris Day detests it and will NOT talk about it. Why? It's polished, sexy, and stunningly filmed by Leon Shamroy! I believe this was his last film (although I may be mistaken). I agree that the plot was not exactly 007. But put it up against many of today's films and it's a fine body of work in many ways, albeit not in all ways. I personally do not think that Richard Harris was a good choice as a leading man for Doris Day. In 1966-67, my uncle was a longshoreman in Long Beach. He was also a rough rugged actor/stuntman in action films. He was doing something at Twentieth Century Fox and I asked him about Caprice. Could he get me in to see them film? So he went to the publicity department to get me some stills from the days shooting. Which he did. They were never officially released by Doris nor her husband. I felt fortunate to get both of them. The day came when he was taking me to the set where they were filming what he was working on and we would visit "Caprice". I skipped school and everything! Doris Day had fell filming and pinched a nerve in her back. She was in traction for quite awhile. They told us that they may have to scrap the film if she couldn't get back to work on it soon. I walked all around the sets. Remember the Eiffel Tower? They were really lush and that bed suspended from those big chains really swung(I sat on it inspite of the signs, I couldn't resist!). I, just a kid, was really impressed by it all. Martin Melcher spared nothing. It was lush! The interior of the jet was cool as well. At the end of the day, my uncle was able to get us a peek into Doris' bungalow at TCFox. WOW! They had great houses for their stars on the lot.

She had great clothes in the wardrobe area for the film. I remember how cool they all looked so perfectly maintained for filming. I particularly remember that pink hat she wore(I thought it was ugly). There were two of them as I recall. And several Platinum wigs. She refused to dye her own hair that color so the hair dresser, Barbara, said. I felt like a fly on the wall around there. The sets all said "HOT SET, DONT TOUCH ANYTHING!" I didn't. I felt VERY privileged.

Caprice was also Doris Day's last commercial recording on the Columbia label, for whom she recorded her entire recording career. It was a single that received good airplay on stations around the world that played easy listening stuff back then. It certainly wasn't as good a recording as "Move Over Darling"! For instance, they LOVED it in Portugal and Spain! The single was released with a high quality picture sleeve there! It's nothing to rave about, but lush, and rich just like the film "Caprice".

Hope you enjoy these memories of mine.

'60s Doris spy caper

This is one of those movies that was originally panned but holds up today, probably because the story and fashions are so of the era as to make it somewhat interesting. Doris is bedecked in all sorts of fabulous mod clothes in this confusing story about double agent cosmetic spies. There are some cute scenes, one in a restaurant and another in a movie theater (which is disconcerting because of the 20th Century Fox logo and their music starting - you think the movie may be starting over). Anyway, Doris sings Caprice on the movie screen while her character attempts to get a lock of hair from the woman in front of her. Meanwhile, the woman's boyfriend, embracing his girlfriend, has one hand on Doris' leg.

I disagree with one of the comments that said that Doris was a 45-year-old who thought she was 20, due to her outrageous makeup. In actuality, that was the makeup of the period, and she didn't look strange to me at all.

This is a terribly silly film but enjoyable for the cast, some good scenes, and as a '60s artifact.
