It's Doris Day again! All hail...

Many happy returns, Miss Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff (born 3rd April 1922) - she's 97, you know?!

    1. She brightened up the screen, no matter what film she was in. Jx

  2. "I've never met an animal I didn't like, and I can't say the same thing about people."

    And even funnier is how relevant what she is saying in those gifs, could be applied to our Dump in the white house.

    2. Hell hath no fury towards a handsome, well-dressed man like a woman who believes she wasn't paid enough for her time.

    3. Hmmm - not sure what your inference is, Mr or Miss "Unknown", but I somehow doubt that Doris Day ever played a prostitute. Jx

  3. Chris Rock says all a woman needs is Food, Water, and Compliments. Some (movie characters) demand -- and can get rather edgy without -- copious amounts of Adoration, Cherishment, and Treasuuring. IRL, graciousness, which is easy to apply, can often be seen, while Charm, which requires seriously hard work, is a rare bird.

    1. Since when did the adulterous porn addict Chris Rock know anything about what women need? Jx

    2. Individual movies are made to appeal to a defined segment of movie ticket buyers with a preconceived view of how the world is or should be. Movies preach to the choir. Movies should never be considered enlightenment. IRL, sarcasm tends to make for open space around a person, the distance of a ten-foot pole. Some people like space. It is freely given them.

    3. I am not sure who you are, why you are here, nor what your agenda is, but it has absolutely nothing to do with my blog post featuring a few gifs of a film starring Doris Day in 1962, in celebration of the lady's 97th birthday. Please go and find a more appropriate forum.

    1. The side-eye. Not a modern phenomenon. Jx

  5. She had good lines, but I have to confess I’ve watched her... because of Rock Hudson!
