On April 3rd she will mark another milestone - her 90th birthday. There will be even more to celebrate with the launch of her first ever American Fansite. While she has and continues to have tremendously popular sites in both the UK and Australia, the folks at DorisDayMagic have decided it is high time she had a true fansite in the USA. The site is scheduled to be opened by the end of March, at which time visitors will find the website address at www.dorisdaymagic.com .
While there is an American site dedicated to Doris and her career at (www.dorisday.com)
Janet Moore of Boston decided that Doris Day needed to be honored by her American fans, who are legion, and started this new site. "I want this to be a place for anyone to come to find out more about Doris - whether you're a fan or not", she noted. Plans are to have the site open prior to Miss Day's birthday although it may not be completely finished by the time it is unveiled. Janet notes, however, that "it is going to be an ongoing project with frequent updates." She hopes that fans and others will visit on a regular basis, noting that Doris refers to her fans as "friends".
Some of these fans/friends from all over the United States have been working collaboratively to help develop this site in order to make it as complete and accurate as possible. Fans from England have also pitched in, and Janet is very grateful for their help and assistance. Among the topics that will be available on the site are: a biographical sketch, pictures of Doris from birth to the present, very complete information about her movies, television appearances and radio show with links to listening and watching many of these, her complete musical history, featuring some rare recordings, interviews, and a compilation of her many awards. There will also be information about "Doris Fashions" as the actress was renowned for her sense of style. Her current activity in Carmel and her animal activism are also but a portion of what the site intends to make available. The plan is to make it a great source of information and entertainment that visitors will want to return to frequently as updates will occur on a regular basis.
What all Doris Day fans/friends have in common is a never-ending love and appreciation for all things Doris as well as a desire to share this love with the rest of the world. Mike DeVita, the webmaster at songsandmemories.com and the author of a recent book about Doris says, "the whole world needs to see what an important part Doris has played in the world of entertainment."
Visitors to the new website won't have any reason to ask that question after spending some prime time with America's favorite blonde.
