“Forgotten Hollywood”- A Comeback For Doris Day…

   Clint Eastwood has reportedly lured Hollywood’s 91-year-old Doris Day out of retirement for a silver screen swan song. The two friends are neighbors in Carmel Valley, California, and on a recent visit Eastwood reportedly presented Day with a script. The actress was delighted with the role, and is working out the final details of her first film role in almost half a century. Two conditions by the star:  They film around Carmel; and a cut of the profits goes to her animal fund charity.

   Day began her career as a singer in 1945, but shot to worldwide fame in the 1950s as the star of musicals, such as Love Me or Leave Me, the Hitchcock thriller The Man Who Knew Too Much, and a series of comedies (Move Over Darling; Pillow Talk) with Rock Hudson, James Garner, Tony Randall, and Rod Taylor. Jack Carson first suggested she was perfect for cinema. Since retiring, she has lived out of the spotlight, and has totally dedicated herself to the Doris Day Animal Foundation.

   A fear of flying meant she has refused both an honorary Oscar and the Kennedy Center Honors. She also declined to pick up a lifetime achievement Grammy in 2008. However, if anyone can convince her to return to the screen it may be Eastwood, who presented her with a Golden Globe in 1989, her last listed public appearance.


   On Day’s own website, there’s no mention of the cinematic project. Technically,  her current final movie credit  is from 1968: With Six You Get Eggroll.

    Doris Day may return. Perhaps… Perhaps… Perhaps… For the record, she says the rumors are not true.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
