New video honors all 39 of Doris Day's movies
-- The Creative Team at sampod4u.com has created a new video you will want to see. It covers the 39 films in which Doris Day starred in her 20 year movie career, for which she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for Acting Achievement, as well as the Los Angeles Film Critics Award for Achievement. The video takes each movie, in turn, with some pertinent facts and music about each. Often forgotten is the fact that before she became a big film star, Doris was first a big recording star, the top female album seller of the 1950's. It is no surprise that many of her hits came directly from her movies. More recognition came for Doris when she was recently awarded the Legend Award from the Society of Singers.
Is is no wonder that Doris maintains the title of Top Grossing Female Box Office Star of All Time, a record never broken. The scope and variety of her film roles attest to her remarkable ability to play any role, just as her musical career also shows such true versatility. From comedy to musicals to westerns to dramatic ventures, Doris was one of the best. Only in recent years has she begun to get the accolades from critics who ignored her for years. Tom Santopietro, in his book Considering Doris Day, helps to set the record straight, as does Sampod webmaster, Mike DeVita, in his book, My 'Secret Love' Affair With Doris Day". Both books should be on your reading list if you are a fan of or are interested in this phenomenal career.
The video is posted on sampod4u.com on the Just Doris Day
