Poor Little Rich Girl
Just to say that this really is the end of an era. An enduring beauty and a presence that just burned through the screen, plus a wonderful and seductive voice that made her own any song she performed. "Calamity Jane" will always be the perfect testament to her tomboyish charm, musical pedigree and bouncy personality but she also more than held her own in many dramas. RIP Doris - you will always be our not-so-Secret Love.

I just saw Bullitt on the big screen, and it was naturally, a wow. The car chase actually made me a tad ill, seeing them go over the hills of San Francisco that way in the cinema. (McQueen's granddaughter said the same thing happened to her.) And it's so nice seeing a good cop show in the movies where there isn't one computer being used. Just good police work.
