Dr. Kildare’s swansong fifth season carried with it some significant changes to the show’s format.

This 7-Disc, 58-Episode Collection starts out on a high note as James Mason guests as a damaged doc whose psyche Kildare must battle to save. Then it’s time for Kildare take up his first teaching assignment, shortly before the hospital gets a new-state-of-the-art kidney machine. But which patients will be chosen?

Donna Loren featured in ‘Batman: The Complete Television Series’ teaser trailer


The complete "Batman" TV series is finally being released on digitally remastered Blu-Ray Video on November 11, 2014. Get it here. Watch the trailer and you will see a clip of Donna with Cesar Romero. She plays The Joker's moll as "Susie" in the popular two-part episode "The Joker Goes to School" (3/2/66) and "He Meets His Match, the Grisly Ghoul" (3/3/66) on ABC. 

Some trivia: On the 1966 Batman Message Board, Donna was #1 pick of 'Molls who changed sides and helped Batman". Donna felt that Cesar Romero transformed himself into The Joker character seamlessly. She learned to play her role in a more campy way from him. Most of the garments she wore on Batman were from her personal wardrobe with the exception of the cheerleader outfit.

Video Interview with The Recording Academy (6-6-11)

Video interview with Donna Loren at a music industry event at which she performed called Sunset Sessions Rock! on June 6, 2011 in Carlsbad, California. The Grammys organization interviewer, Daniel Mendoza, can hardly be heard, so we have included his questions below, by number. However, you should be able to hear Daniel with headphones.

1. Who has inspired you and who did you listen to early on?
2. What’s one of your greatest moments in your career?
3. So fantastic- such great history. Let’s talk about your comeback – so fresh! What is your creative process? What’s this journey about?
4. Amazing. That’s coming from such a truthful place and I think that art that comes out like that is so special and honest and its an expression for all the right reasons. We get away from that in this industry, but you’re right, it’s changing and evolving and exciting times. We were talking about Daniel Glass of Glassnote Records and some of the artists that he has are so fresh and passionate and inspiring. Is there anybody that you’re listening to right now?
5. That’s so cool!
6. I love that stuff.
7. Switching gears- we’re talking about the Grammy’s. Have you watched the show? Been to the show?
8. Is there a tidbit of advice- a golden nugget of information of just getting started for the students we at the Grammy’s offer assistance to?
9. Thank you
