  1. I was so surprised to see a post from Jamie. And then I saw a Doris Day -- the first I've seen around blogville. I knew you were unique, Jamie, and I always thought Doris Day was so much fun! I know you are too.

  2. Holy Moly...surprise surprise!

    Fun to see you out and about.

    It is funny how even though you stopped I still like to check in.

    Looks like others still do.

  3. "My Final Post", my ass.

    By the way:

    "...Filmed in Technicolor, "It's a Great Feeling" was aimed at attracting a larger audience for Doris Day, whom the studio was building into their next big star. Ironically, Bette Davis, after 20-years with the studio, was trying desperately to leave and threatened to shut down "Beyond the Forest" unless she was released from her contract. Doris Day had no such problems. She was riding high and had the studio backing that a new star needed to succeed in Hollywood in 1949."

    Hmph. Figgers.

  4. You WOULD be sunny, happy-go-lucky Doris Day whilst I get brooding, cynical, crazyperson Bette.

  5. I was Marilyn - the sexpot! Ha! It fit me like a perfect satin glove with boa trim!!
