Doris Day

I saw most of a couple of her movies on TV, but her career arc and my access to media didn't mesh well--and I was more of a Night Gallery than romantic comedy fan.

I read a smattering of retrospectives of her life. They discussed the popularity of her personna. They shared a very odd assumption--that a virginal girl-next-door can't be intensely sexy.

I was mostly attracted to exactly those. Many of us preferred Mary Ann to Ginger.
