I have not posted in a while but read your posts regularly. Its interesting how with each book some of us will eiher love it or leave it but something happened to me yesterday on the London underground that I thought you might like to hear.....
I was travelling on the underground and a girl in her early twenties got on. In her hand she had the Vanity Fair that features Doris.
She opened it and started looking at the pics. I too was leaning a bit over and looking at the pics again. She noticed me and smiled, that was all I needed. I started talking to her about Doris and she said that she loved watching Doris' films on Tv in Spain where she was from.
The two people opposite us joined in the conversation and they too knew of Doris and said how much they enjoyed her music. Then another couple who were from the states joined in and the mother said she used to watch Doris's movies as a girl with her parents in the cinema! Lucky girl is what I thought... The funny thing was an Indian lady to my left who was listening to us said that she had watched dubbed versions of Doris' movies, can you imagine Doris talking hindi!!!! that would be so cute...
Its so wonderful that so many people of different age and nationality know Doris and amazing and funny how she brings people together even in the underground!!!!
I like this artcile because it will re-light the interest and passion that the not so ardent fans had for her. Hopefully there will be a renewed interest and a revival of her material for all generations which will lead to highlighting her great work with the animals.
It will be a book, good or bad, that I can not wait to read.
