Doris Day 1922-2019

My youth is really over. Ms. Day was my favorite movie star as a kid, I kept scrapbooks on her and saw her movies over and over again. I outgrew her when I reached my late teens but that didn't stop me from adoring her from a distance. She was one of the great pop singers and many of her performances were memorable. She could have done more and better, she turned down some challenging roles, The Exorcist and The Graduate come to mind, and passed on South Pacific which could have turned that so so musical into a classic. She inspired (New York, New York is based on her life) and as I said my childhood is colored by her.
