Film Icon: Doris Day

I have been a big fan of Doris Day ever since I was a little girl and first saw the film, Pillow Talk. Doris Day represents the girl-next-door, and always brings a lightheartedness and charm to the screen. Born in 1924 in Ohio, Doris had always been involved in the arts, whether it was through dance, music, or acting. Doris was initially a singer, which led to a career as an actress later in life. She does a stellar job with her roles in romantic comedy movies, and she always lights up the screen with her grace. As if there is even more reason to adore her, Doris is also an animal lover and advocate. In the late 1970’s, she started a foundation called the Doris Day Animal League which merged with the Humane Society in 2006. While Doris is no longer active in the film industry, she spends her time helping animals across the country.
