I am just now looking up what kind of movies YouTube might have.

I actually haven't seen all that many Doris Day movies but awhile ago I saw "That Touch of Mink" with Cary Grant and really liked it.

YouTube has "That Touch of Mink" but it doesn't appear to be a very good copy.

My favorite movies of hers are That Touch of Mink and Pillow Talk. She was a great actress. Prayers for her family and friends. RIP Doris Day

I liked her movie "It Happened To Jane", where she owns a lobster-selling business and gets into a big legal dust-up with a big company that screws up their end of an order.

And a few years ago, I seriously thought about buying her Christmas CD on Amazon.

One of my favorites was the The Glass Bottom Boat (1966) with Rod Taylor. Made during the space race. Most of her best were around this time period.

Oh no! I grew up with her movies, through the 50s and 60s. RIP, Miss Day. Prayers for your family, friends and many, many fans.

I've seen Calamity Jane and The Man Who Knew Too Much.
Also I vaguely remember a TV show.

Oh, they were my favorites! Loved her with James Garner in both of their movies. I loved her line in one of them: "Do you mean YOUR money is OURS, but MY money is MINE?" I can't imagine a world without Doris Day. :comfort:

The more I think about it, the more I think that "That Touch of Mink" might be the only Doris Day movie I've ever seen and I watched it again last night.

And this is awhile ago, but I thought that Rush Limbaugh at one time said that Doris Day was a fan of his show and a friend.

I had heard she was a conservative, but probably was low-key in publicizing it.

The Fullerton train station was a set location for Doris Day's, "Send Me No Flowers." Doris picks up Rock from the train station (with Tony Randall in tow) in the beginning of the movie, and at the end, Doris & Rock have a spat inside the depot.

In the summer, that station was where I and many of my friends met and took the train to San Clemente. It was inexpensive and fun. We only did it the summer after our sophomore year. Because we were old enough to travel in a group, but the next year we had driver's licenses.

Still it's a fond memory for me. (And I'll have to go watch the movie again.)

I can see that because I looked up info on this and one Doris Day fan site loved her but pretty much were not shy about their dislike for Rush Limbaugh.

Also, in general, she seemed to retreat from being a public figure some time ago.

And, interestingly, unless I missed it (I've been busy), Rush made no mention of her passing and often times he comments a little bit on what famous people meant to him at the time of their passing.
