o, my days...

from 35.00

#art/#history: i've heard it said of her that she was dismissed by serious cinephiles & film critics - & even by general society - because she possessed true goodness. what you saw was what you got, but she was much more complex than you'd know if you didn't dig your digits in & really scratch the surface. doris day died today & the sun seems not to shine so brightly. she wouldn't want me to say that. after all, she'd often professed that she just wanted to make people happy. i think that's because she overcame some excruciating crucibles in the course of her 97 years. she fell in love with men who abused her both physically & mentally. she built a solid foundation only to discover that her manager husband had left her penniless...but our doris clamboured up & started over. from sweeping soundscapes across two decades to haunting portrayals in hitchcock & razor-sharp comic timing in donen's 'the pajama game', she gave us everything she had - & i don't believe we quite realise how much that was. the animals will miss her kindness, but the doris day animal foundation (which she determined to make a success in honour of a dog friend she lost to a road traffic accident as a child & whose death for which she always blamed herself) is a fitting legacy for the golden piped, resilient, funny, compassionate & TRULY GOOD ms doris day.
