Discovering Doris Day

“Movie Moguls prattle on endlessly about star quality, but Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff really did have it in spades. For 20 years from 1948, her crisp blonde hairdos and 1,000 watt smile lit up the big screen, until her clean cut image fell out of fashion. But her mumsy persona belied a prodigious talent , both as a  singer and comedy actress.
The profile is proof that though she may have starred opposite James Cagney, Frank Sinatra, Rock Hudson and Cary Grant, Day was second to no-one”
