Happy Birthday, Doris Day!

Annex%20-%20Day,%20Doris_08It’s Doris Day’s birthday, and that’s cause for much jubilation as far as I’m concerned!  My love for this marvelous lady is off the charts and has been ever since I was a little girl.

She’s quite simply the greatest.  With her beautiful singing, fantastic acting in some of the most charming movies ever made, and her devoted work for animal welfare, she’s made the world a much happier place during her 87 years.

I think I’ll get out my collection of Doris Day movies and watch a few today in celebration.  My all-time favorite, Pillow Talk, definitely.  Maybe Calamity Jane and her delightful first film, Romance on the High Seas, too.  Oh, and The Glass Bottom Boat – it’s been too long since I saw that one.  There are just too many to choose from.  If I had the time I’d spend the whole week watching Doris Day movies!

On the subject of time, mine’s been very limited lately, so I’m way behind on both reading others’ blogs and on writing here myself.  Among other things, I want to talk about Dear Heart, which I happily found I still loved, and about all the William Holden movies I’ve seen lately, especially The World of Suzie Wong, which I thought was great.

I’ll be busy with work and traveling for a while, though, so appearances here might be scarce.  It’s too bad watching classic movies and writing about them can’t be my full-time occupation!

Hope you all have a great week, and Happy Birthday, dear Doris!
