    I always liked “Julie” where she plays a terrified wife being murdered by her husband (Louis Jourdan) and “The Winning Team” where she plays the wife of baseball player Grover Cleveland Alexander (Ronald Reagan). She was wonderful and I enjoyed all of her movies.

    Love Me or Leave Me – her best performance

    Teacher’s Pet. Clark Gable’s reaction as Mamie Van Doren bumps and grinds her way thru “I’m the Girl Who Invented Rock and Roll” is priceless.

    My favourite … “It Happened to Jane (1959).” As always, Ernie Kovacs, as railroad tycoon Harry Foster Malone, was superb. He is also less over-the-top than usual. Jack Lemmon, in a semi-dramatic role, gives a town hall speech that should be played in every school. Nevertheless, his comedic chops are important when dealing with Jane’s determination to beat both City Hall and Big Business. And Doris, as Jane Osgood, mother of two (plus a lobster), demonstrates conclusively she doesn’t have to be glamorous to be supremely beautiful. It is also a rare story, for the 1950s, of a spunky woman in business for herself overcoming adversity with the odds stacked against her.

    Of those listed, I liked Doris best in the musical “The Pajama Game” because she could really sing! She was the only replacement to the original Broadway cast. The filming of this great show is too stagey, but it is also such a great show that it overcomes the uninspired direction.

    I loved her in Teacher’s Pet opposite Clark Gable.

    My favorite DD movie came out in the early 1950s — Storm Warning, with Ginger Rogers, Ronald Reagan, and Steve Cochran. It wasn’t a musical, but the story of a young married woman (Day) whose sister (Rogers) comes to visit and sees the young woman’s husband drag a man from jail with a bunch of other members of the KKK and they murder the prisoner.

    Romance on the High Seas, her first movie I believe, she is the picture of bright-eyed innocence, in my favorite scene calling the Warner Brothers music director a genius, as he nods sagely
