Today marks the centenary of Doris Day’s birth.
This remarkable artist’s life came to an end a few years ago. When Doris Day died, I wanted to capture the meaning of this historic movie star, whom I plan to feature in a series of articles in the future, with both a streak of Doris Day’s optimism and a call to action accounting for the state of the culture. I turned to Turner Classic Movies (TCM), which published my remembrance of her movies, songs and mark on American culture. How do you regard and remember Doris Day?
