Screen legend Doris Day is celebrating a landmark birthday with an auction to benefit her favorite cause: animals.

A spokesman for Day said Tuesday the nonprofit Doris Day Animal Foundation will mark her 90th birthday in April with a bash in Carmel, Calif.

A sold-out fundraising celebration at Day's Cypress Inn will include a doggie fashion show, adoption event and an April 4 tribute dinner for fans and friends.

I always thought that she was a beautiful and talented woman. I enjoyed both her movies and singing.

Her 1954 song, “Secret Love,” spoke to my dreams when I was in the 8th grade and in love with a very pretty girl. She didn’t know it, though, and I never had the nerve to do anything but admire her and occasionally speak with her at recess.

Yes, she was fantastic. If girls could look like her today.

Too bad, in her time she was paired with so many Hollywood homosexuals. Rock Hudson. Cary Grant. And, by extension, oh my God, Randolph Scott.

Yeah, a lot of Hollywood fooled us for a long time. Lot’s of deviants running around and making themselves seem normal.

Ha Ha !

Incidently, I quote DDE every morning and evening to Lynn-Dah-the-Dog just before we take our walk.

It is the iconic quote from D-Day, and every time i say it, Lynn-dah does the doggie dance of joy.

The quote is, of course:

“OK...let’s Go.”

Nah, don’t believe that about Grant and Scott. A lot of that rumored nonsense was started by the usual crowd of homos and deviants (like Kenneth Anger and his ilk) even back then, who liked to claim ‘everyone’ was a homo. A lot of more modern fruity authors writing about Hollywood continue the trend. Grant and Scott shared a beachhouse during their salad days at Paramount, before they both really hit it big. That’s all the wags based their rumors on. Just like the old photos of Rudolph Valentino in effeminate period garb led many to say he was a fag. He wasn’t.

Not that there weren’t indeed a hefty number of homos around in the industry back then... Charles Laughton, Dan Dailey, William Haines, David Manners, Richard Cromwell, etc. But be wary of the sleazoid authors and their agendas.

When I was in eighth grade I was in love with Maureen O’Hara. And before that with Margaret O’Brien.

Yet, I cheated on neither one.

I know who he is. A very gifted pianist & actor. He was in AN AMERICAN IN PARIS. That’s the movie my parents went to see the night they realized they were in love. We love us some Oscar Levant in my family.

God bless Doris Day and all the wonderful work she does to help animals.

Doris did it up right. She retired from Hollywood relatively young (preferring to be remembered as she was in her heyday) and devoted her life to doing good in the world- using her fame/name/money for a good cause.

She didn't try to hang on to her glory days and become a pathetic parody of herself as some big name stars of yesteryear do. She's done with Hollywood- and they can't stand it. They want her out so they can ridicule, as they did poor Kim Novak. Doris has been called a 'bag lady', 'senile' and worse because she won't play Hollywood's game. She is none of these things. She is still a bright, attractive and active lady.

Another former big star, Bridgett Bardot, did the same, and I admire her. She has a world famous animal help organization, and has fought hard to help keep Muslims from overtaking France. [in vain] She has been fined and jailed for her efforts

Doris Day is a living legend, an American treasure- the likes of which we will never see again.

Over the course of her career, Day appeared in 39 films. She was ranked the biggest box-office star, the only woman on that list, for four years (1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964) ranking in the top 10 for ten years (1951–1952 and 1959–1966). She became the top-ranking female box-office star of all time and is currently ranked sixth among the top 10 box office performers (male and female), as of 2012. She received an Academy Award nomination for her performance in Pillow Talk, won three Henrietta Awards (World Film Favorite), received the Los Angeles Film Critics Association's Career Achievement Award and, in 1989, received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for lifetime achievement in motion pictures. Doris Day made her last film in 1968.

Doris Day has also released 31 albums, and her songs have spent a total of 460 weeks in the Top 40 charts. She has been awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a Legend Award from the Society of Singers. In 2011, she released her 29th studio album, My Heart, which debuted at No. 9 on the UK Top 40 charts. As of January 2014, Day is the oldest living artist to score a UK Top 10 with an album featuring new material.

She could do it all; sing, dance, drama, comedy- you name it. If you haven't seen her in a drama, see 'Midnight Lace'[the best crier in the movies] and 'Love Me or Leave me'- both outstanding dramatic performances.

Sadly, she has been still been underappreciated. She's never been given an Academy Award. Too normal. Too much of a lady, I guess.

By the way, she laughs about the 'eternal virgin' bit, too. She says it just the way she was always cast.

Happy birthday, Doris- and thank you for all the wonderful entertainment you left us.

What a talented, funny, and troubled human being. He was a friend to the Gershwins, and he could play their music more artfully than could they.

Update: Doris has fudged her age by 2 years for her entire adult life. According to census records and her official biographer, she’s actually 92. Common with celebrities — e.g., Shirley Temple, and even the detestable Rachel Zoe.
