Happy Birthday, Doris Day!

Happy Birthday Doris Day! - Global Cocktail - Gay Travel Blog - Passport Magazine: "Doris Day turns 86 today. She has not made a movie since 1969, but to this day she remains the reigning female movie star in terms of box office revenue. From 1959 to 1964 she was the #1 female vocalist on records. Her TV show, which ran from 1969 to 1975, was frequently #1 and always in the top ten. Then when it was over, it was over. She walked away from Hollywood and turned her energies full time to animal rights activism."

A living testament to the efficacy of coffee enemas.

The story of her TV series is an interesting one. Like a lot of her movies it was something she didn't want to do but had been signed up for without her knowing about it by her third husband Martin Melcher. She claims she never found out about it until after Melcher died. She also found out that Melcher and his business partner (also her attorney) left her in serious debt through their speculations.
