Doris Day ~ Where Were You When the Lights Went Out (1968)



Doris Day ~ Where Were You When the Lights Went Out (1968)

American comedy film with Doris Day, directed by Hy Averback. Although it is set in New York City during the infamous Northeast Blackout of 1965, in which 25 million people scattered throughout seven states lost electricity for several hours, the screenplay by Everett Freeman and Karl Tunberg is based on the earlier 1956 French play Monsieur Masure by Claude Magnier.

This was the pen-ultimate film of Doris Day's long career, being released two months before her final screen appearance in 1968's With Six You Get Eggroll.

The film's title tune was written by Dave Grusin and Kelly Gordon and sung by The Lettermen. George W. Davis and Urie McCleary were the film's art directors, and costumes were designed by Glenn Connelly.

Morgan Freeman is seen briefly as a Grand Central Station commuter but does not receive on-screen credit.

The film was the fourteenth starring Doris Day to premiere at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan. The MGM release earned $7,988,000 at the box office in the US, making it the 16th highest grossing film of 1968.
