New to Streaming: ‘Apocalypse Now: Final Cut,’ Jonas Mekas, British Hitchcock, and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options—not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves–each week we highlight the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

A Burning Hot Summer (Philippe Garrel)

What makes Philippe Garrel’s films so distinct is their blend of autobiographical pain and silent-film mise-en-scène–a failed relationship or revolution rendered not so much through the increasingly dialogue-heavy scripts of his films, but the placement of bodies, gestures, and, furthermore, the dreams that contain and emerge from them. Yet while A Burning Hot Summer may be the only film he’s made in the 21st century not shot in black-and-white, once the senior Maurice Garrel (in his final role) appears as an apparition in his grandson’s hospital bed-bound vision, the personal and the fantastical have formed their most natural relationship.

Doris Day, who died May 13 at 97, had an iconic career as an actress and singer (and in retirement as an animal activist). The high points of her film career were many, but nearly anyone assessing her performances would include Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” released 63 years ago.

Her death reduces the dwindling number of actors whom Hitchcock directed on film. We found 18 of his 53 features which have cast members still with us. The number of actors we found — currently ranging in age from 63 -104 — comes to 29. Here are these extraordinary performers who provide a crucial living link to film history.

Hollywood Legend Doris Day Dies at 97

Tony Sokol May 14, 2019

Hollywood's iconic girl next door was TV's first single mom and an animal rights pioneer.

"Que será, sera," Doris Day sang her iconic, underplayed ode to fortune, "whatever will be, will be." The Hollywood icon died of pneumonia on Monday, May 14, at the age of 97, according to The Doris Day Animal Foundation, via Variety. The singer and actress who defined the girl next door died early at her home in Carmel Valley, California.

Day made over thirty films, including Tea for Two, On Moonlight Bay, By the Light of the Silvery Moon, David Butler’s 1953 film Calamity Jane and The Pajama Game, and over 600 recordings. Alfred Hitchcock used Day's recognizable voice to send a distress signal to her kidnapped son in The Man Who Knew Too Much. The song which held the message, “Que Sera Sera,” won the 1956 Academy Award for Best Original Song with the alternative title "Whatever Will Be,

Doris Day Appreciation: Why Did Oscar Elude A Shining Star Of So Many Talents?

Doris Day Appreciation: Why Did Oscar Elude A Shining Star Of So Many Talents?
Whenever the subject of who should get Honorary Oscars — or the Governors Awards, as they now are known — comes up, there has not been a single year, not one, when Doris Day’s name was not at the top of the speculation. But it never happened. The Academy’s Board of Governors never even went the Debbie Reynolds route by voting this renowned animal-rights activist the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, perhaps because it has human in its title. Although she often referred to herself as the girl singer in the band, her remarkable movie career spanned a couple of decades during the 50’s and 60’s, and about three dozen movies — frequently in what might be known as Doris Day movies — and maybe that is why the Academy never honored her. Or perhaps they just knew this star, who retreated from the business almost entirely, never would show up. Still, in her big-screen prime,

Doris Day Appreciation: Sweetness and Light Met Grit and Tenacity, Both on Screen and Off
When teenager Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff sang along to Ella Fitzgerald on the radio, the Cincinnati native could never have predicted that, as Doris Day, she would go on to become one of the 20th century’s most beloved performers, first as a vocalist, then as an actress and then finally as an outspoken champion for the rights of animals.

But it was those radio sing-alongs that inspired Alma Welz Kappelhoff to send her daughter to a vocal coach, and by the time Doris was 17, she was singing for bandleader Barney Rapp, who convinced her to change her name to a more marquee-friendly length.

Day would go on to sing for the likes of Jimmy James and Bob Crosby, but it was her collaboration with Les Brown and His Band of Renown in the late 1940s that would rocket her to national stardom with hits like “Sentimental Journey” and “‘Till the End of Time.

Doris Day’s Wholesome Persona Was What Fans Wanted to See

Doris Day’s Wholesome Persona Was What Fans Wanted to See
As a singer, Doris Day had a warm voice that captivated millions of post-war record-buyers. As an actress, she was a top box office attraction and her name became shorthand for nearly all 1960s romantic comedies: “It’s a Doris Day kind of film.” As a personality, she was loved by the public as a freckle-faced, common-sense gal who seemed like a lot of fun.

Privately, her life was peppered with divorces, tales of spousal abuse, bankruptcy and even connections to the Manson family. The difference between reality and her image were night and Day, so to speak. But it was a very different time. The public didn’t want to hear about the darkness; they just loved her sunniness. And that’s what fans will continue to remember.

She started out as the “girl singer” in the Big Band era, and the song “Sentimental Journey” in 1945 put her on the map.

Hollywood Mourns Doris Day: She ‘Took a Piece of the Sun With Her’
Hollywood took to social media to mourn the death of icon Doris Day on Monday.

One of the most popular stars in the movie industry in the ’50s and ’60s, Day was known for her wholesome girl-next-door personality, her comedies that pushed the envelope and her public love life. The actress earned an Oscar nomination for her 1959 film “Pillow Talk” with Rock Hudson and won best song for “Que Sera, Sera” in the Alfred Hitchcock thriller “The Man Who Knew Too Much” in 1956.

Fellow stars, like Goldie Hawn, remembered the legend fondly on Twitter.

“The great Doris Day left us and took a piece of the sun with her,” Hawn said. “May she rest peacefully.”

Doris Day, Chanteuse: Five of Her Greatest Musical Performances
Doris Day may have died with a reputation of being Hollywood’s most scrubbed-clean and wholesome girl-next-door type. But she made it to the big screen courtesy her warmly simmering and easily quavering vocal tones. Before films beckoned, she was a featured vocalist with big band-era kings such as Bob Crosby (Bing’s brother) and Les Brown and His Band of Renown, the latter of which recorded Day sunnily crooning “Sentimental Journey” and “My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time.”

While both ballads made her the toast of radio fans and World War II vets coming home from the battlefront in 1945, Day had so much more to offer during her sadly abbreviated singing career — which included one album released in the 21st century, “My Heart,” and a host of previously unreleased songs she recorded with her composer-producer son, the late Terry Melcher.

Here are some signature smashes and cool surprises from Doris Day.

Doris Day, Hollywood Legend and Singer, Dies at 97
It's a very sad day in Hollywood, as legendary singer, actress, and animal welfare activist Doris Day has reportedly passed away. On Monday, Day's death was announced by her charity, the Doris Day Animal Foundation. According to a statement, Day "had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia." Surrounded by close friends, Day died in her Carmel Valley, California at the age of 97. Day is survived by her grandson, Ryan Melcher; her only child Terry Melcher previously passed away in 2004.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1922, Day took an early interest in performing by forming a dance duo with Jerry Doherty in the '30s. Her dreams of becoming a professional dancer were hindered by a car accident in 1937, badly injuring her right leg. During her recovery, Day began to sing along to the radio, discovering she had plenty of vocal talent as well.

Doris Day Dies at 97: Her Gifts Were Underestimated, But Her Artistic Legacy Is Vast
Doris Day has died at age 97, her foundation said early on May 13. The actress, singer, and activist was one of the last legends of classic Hollywood, and her intense privacy for the last 30 years of her life only enhanced her mystique.

Day was 22 when she recorded her first number-one hit with “Sentimental Journey;” her final acting credit was the TV series “The Doris Day Show,” which ended its run in 1973. But what she packed into those 30 years is extraordinary: nearly 40 movies and five Billboard #1 hits. Although she started to withdraw from Hollywood in the ’70s, followed by the brief run of a Christian Broadcasting Network talk show in 1985-86, it always felt like there was more to discover in her body of work.

That talk show, “Doris Day’s Best Friends,” was legendary in its own right. In 1985, Rock Hudson, Day’s co-star in frothy comedies such as “Pillow Talk” and “Lover Come Back,

Tributes poured in for her today as fans shared their memories of films like Calamity Jane, Pillow Talk and Move Over, Darling.

A string of further musicals followed and in 1956 she proved herself as a dramatic actress alongside James Stewart in Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much. She would go on to.
