About Me: Tell us about yourself/or your love for classic movies
I had been a fan of Doris Day since I was 10 years old and saw "Calamity Jane" in 1954. I did all I could to learn about Doris including joining her ONLY fan club in London! Years later I left my society reporter's job at The Indianapolis NEWS and moved to Los Angeles where I met my idol. I had the opportunity to get to know Doris and eventually she asked me to work for her while she was filming her hit TV show "The Doris Day Show" at CBS. I eventually lived with her for nearly 2 years. I was privy to the years when Day was fighting to regain her fortune, starring in a TV series and as an animals right advocate.
My book "DAY AT A TIME - An Indiana Girl's Sentimental Journey to Doris Day's Hollywood and Beyond" was published in late 2007 recalling my quest and sentimental journey to Hollywood to meet America's Sweetheart, DORIS DAY! I am now busy giving author talks around the country to many who love Doris and I am happy to share my memories and rare memorabilia with others. Doris has been a huge inspiration to me over the years and I am glad to talk about my fun-loving friend, Doris Day!

It was producer Samuel Goldwyn’s final attempt at making the Ukrainian actress Anna Sten into a Garbo-level star, and his persistence had become something of a Hollywood joke. The Wedding Night became known around town as “Goldwyn’s Last Sten,” but […]
To view Phantom click here. It’s that time of year when Nosferatu (1922), F.W. Murnau’s interpretation of Dracula, appears on lists of recommended horror films. The oldest, existing film version of Bram Stoker’s novel, Nosferatu is likely Murnau’s most watched title. It’s eerie Expressionist style was a major influence on the American horror genre, but […]
