Doris Day, Lover Come Back (1961)
I don’t have a lot of time, unfortunately, this morning to spend at the computer – otherwise, I’d love to rave on and on and on about Doris Day on the date of her birth! Her talent, beauty, genuineness, love for animals, graciousness, positivity, and inner light deserve more words than I have time to devote to them right now.
But to be honest, I’m not sure a billion words could sum up even half of how special and unique she was.
I love her filmography and the way she lights up a screen. I love her speaking voice, as well as her wonderful singing voice. I love how much joy she seemed to derive from making people smile. I love how positive she was about her co-stars and how gracious she was about her experiences and films.
The lovely photos in this post are from one of my favorite of her films, Lover Come Back. The 1961 comedy was directed by Delbert Mann and co-stars Rock Hudson, Tony Randall, Edie Adams, Ann B. Davis, Jack Albertson, and Jack Oakie.
You can find the romantic comedy Lover Come Back (1961) on DVD, Blu-ray, or Prime Video (Amazon link).
