About this title
From dust jacket notes: "From the big band to the big screen, Doris Day has become a uniquely American entertainment legend. Here is the story of her career, of how she became the symbol for American women. With a collection of over 150 stunning photographs, author Alan Gelb brings this legend into crisp focus. You'll thrill to the many photos of Doris Day acting, singing, dancing, and clowning with stars like Joan Crawford, Clark Gable, Lauren Bacall, and, of course, Rock Hudson and James Garner. Along with this photographic chronicle, Alan Gelb's perceptive writing will lead you behind the bright Doris Day smile you see on the screen into an ever greater appreciation of the spirit that made her films a landmark in the American cinematic tradition. Here you'll read about the serious accident that nearly ended her entertaining career before it had begun -- and about the strong personal qualities that turned defeat to glittering victory. You'll understand why she avoided the truly dramatic roles that were the specialties of so many of her contemporaries. And you'll come away with a grin and many smiling memories. All of Doris Day's most important and entertaining films are discussed in detail. They're all here -- the greatest Saturday night movies, like LOVE ME OR LEAVE ME, THE PAJAMA GAME, JUMBO, CALAMITY JANE, TEACHER'S PET, AND THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH. A detailed list of her films naming directors, writers, stars, and co-stars -- a feature every fan will appreciate -- completes this one-of-a-kind offering. Doris Day may well be the last of the great movie queens. She is a legend, a symbol, and this book provides a warm tribute to her great contribution to the American cinema."
