Vintage Trailer of the Day: Please Don’t Eat the Daisies (1960)

Most people know the song, “Que Sera, Sera,” but not as many know where it came from. Well, it wasn’t this film. It was first featured on screen in Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much with Doris Day sweetly laying it out. It became her signature song, and she had to sing it a ton.

Including her co-starring role in Please Don’t Eat the Daisies opposite David Niven. It’s a brilliant comedic pairing, and it’s unclear why they didn’t work more together.

A last bit of trivia here: this was the final movie for Oscar nominee Spring Byington, who people probably most recognize from You Can’t Take it With You and Mutiny on the Bounty.
