Doris Day, R.I.P.

Today, we lost another star from Hollywood’s Golden Age.  There will be more to write later.  For now….

Doris Day was 97 and she was a far better actress than she was ever given credit for.  She may have been best known for the romantic comedies that she made with Rock Hudson but let us not forget that Doris Day also starred in Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much and held her own opposite James Cagney in Love Me or Leave Me.  She starred in the superior thriller, Midnight Lace, and she was the first choice to play Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate.  After she retired from acting, she worked to promote animal welfare and she founded the Doris Day Animal Foundation.   The Doris Day Horse Rescue and Adoption Center operates to this day in Murchison, Texas.

Rest in peace, Doris Day.
