    Doris and Rock were sweet together. Their friendship was very touching.
    My Doris Day favourites are, however, Calamity Jane (she’s so Cute and feisty in that), the fantastic drama Love Me Or Leave Me, opposite James Cagney, and her performances of Que Sera Sera (in a film that is slightly too Fifties stodgy) and, in particular, My Secret Love, the latter song *kills* me for a variety of reasons not least the staggering beauty of her voice and those sentimental but wrenching lyrics (excuse George whilst he wipes away a tear!). I guess I’m a bit of a Doris fan 🙂

  2. I feel the same exact way about Doris’ singing “Secret Love.” Sentimental but wrenching indeed.
    And Day’s acting style was powerfully warm and real. It pains me when I hear her maligned as an icon of repressive 50’s womanhood. I mean this kindly, but the frigid and syrupy rep rightly belongs to June Allyson. Doris was sexier than the farmer’s daughter!
