Doris Day is one of my all-time favorites from the "golden era." She was feminine without being fussy. Sexy without being slattern. She could be funny or dramatic. She was classy and a classic. Since Valentine's Day is around the corner I'm going to have a Doris Day fest! For motherly, fierce love there's Hitchcock's "The Man Who Knew Too Much." For innocent secret love, the comedy, "Calamity Jane." For love betrayed, "Midnight Lace," which will have you biting your French manicure. Look at the contemporary sofa or futon! Anyone else like Doris Day or that era of decorating? Photos from top: Album cover, Doris and Rock; and Midnight Lace. Also, got a great email from Mary Ann, who was Doris Day's personal secretary! Here's her site. And here's a site for those who like Doris Day and her era of songs (along with other oldies from the 40s-1960's). Enjoy!
