Doris Day

Happy Birthday to

Doris Day

89 today

Or Doris Mary Ann Von Kappelhoff as she prefers to be called these days. Doris hasn't acted in nearly 40 years but that doesn't stop a perennial campaign to get her an honorary Oscar. Here she is never stopping loving you in 1955's Love me or Leave Me.

I LOVED her in Pillow Talk. Loved her.

I think it's already too late for Honorary Oscar, and someone in the Academy must really hate her considering it hadn't happened till now.

Yes, it is a shame she has not been properly recognized.

I also especially like her for being a true animal advocate.

Nice post...thanks for remembering her.

One of the last greats of 60's cinema now.

Really should be remembered more for her work, whether the quality of the performances or the animal welfare charities rather than for just being Doris.

Is it awful that I always forget she's still alive?

Shame on you Jose, although I know what you mean given that at one time she was one of the most famous women in the world and now we've barely heard a peep in decades.
