@twinsister  Thanks for posting! I won't be able to watch, but she is one of my very favorites! Loved her "It's Magic" from Romance on the High Seas!

I would hope so since they didn't honor her on her 97th birthday last month. One on my fave's is "It Happened to Jane" with Jack Lemmon and Ernie Kovacs. I don't think she was given the honors she deserved. RIP to a great actress and animal activist.

I just read that Judy Garland originally intended to do "Romance on the High Seas". 

 

Doris Day's husband, George Weidler, wanted a divorce at that time because he felt she would outgrow him. And Doris Day hoped she could change his mind. She failed. And that Doris Day cried through her screen test for the movie.

 

Director Michael Curtiz liked Doris Day's lack of pretense.

Pillow Talk is one of the finest sophisticated comedies of its time, I never tire of it!!  Rock and Doris adored each other in real life.

My mother and I would go to see Doris Day movies and we loved her with Rock Hudson and James Garner. She always looked beautiful and I enjoyed seeing the beautiful clothes she wore. She looked so good in everything, such a lady with class.
