She brought me countless hours of pleasure in my youth as she seemed to embody what being an adult was like. She is only 22 in this photo.
Yes. Doris Day.
She began as a dancer and when an accident cut her dancing career short, she switched seamlessly to singing--her family needed her support.
What is your favorite Doris Day movie? I am opting for PILLOW TALK although before she made this series of sexy comedies, she made an series of girl next door musicals. She could do it all. People disparaged her movies with Rock Hudson but they hold up a lot better than other movies of the time. Their charm endures for me.
