    I'd tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya

    Doris Day has passed at 97

    Probably not everyone's cup of tea, and also probably (?!) before the time of many on this board, but a true legend.

    Heard about it this morning on the way to work in my car.

    Sad, but she did live 97 years. Amazing singing voice. Her Christmas album is still a classic.

    She lived near Carmel/Monterey for at least the last 3 or 4 decades. Spent a lot of time and energy into helping animals that were abused or abandoned, if I recall correctly.


    Truly one of the all-time greats.

    Ugh...getting old is only made better because the alternative sucks.

    She was co-owner of the Cypress Inn in Carmel, a dog-friendly hotel. Carmel is a dog-friendly town - hosts Poodle Day every September, which benefits a poodle rescue foundation.

    Doris Day as Mrs. Robinson?

    Apparently, Day was offered the role of Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate, but turned it down because it wasn't consistent with her image:

    From Kathleen Parker of the WaPo:

    Today, Day’s characters would be laughable to world-weary children trapped in a sexualized culture. But I can testify that watching grown-ups crawl into twin beds wearing pajamas brings no harm to the underaged. I’m grateful for the innocence that society then permitted its younger generation, and to actors such as Day, who declined roles, including Mrs. Robinson in “The Graduate,” that defied her values.
    Now, fuzzy close-ups and all, I can think for a while about Doris Day with "Mr. Goldfarb" at the hotel tryst.

    Her championing of the rights of animals began when she saw the treatment of the sheep, goats, etc. used in the marketplace scenes in The Man Who Knew Too Much. She insisted that they be fed and watered before she'd go on set.
