Thanks Jas.

Marilyn Monroe has the distinction of being the most photographed person of the 20th century. Books are still being written about her, 55 years after her death.

She was viewed by the industry as a money machine and did not receive the respect she so richly deserved.

Like Doris, Marilyn made a connection with the public that has grown with admiration and love for her over the years. Her life story is both the Hollywood dream and Hollywood tragedy.

I came to appreciate Marilyn's work as an adult. The camera loved her. The more I see her films, the more there is to appreciate. She was a gifted comedienne and her work in Bus Stop and The Misfits is evidence of her skills as a dramatic actress.

I read that Marilyn wanted to do Pillow Talk with Rock Hudson. I think there would have been good chemistry but I wonder if Pillow Talk would have been as successful as it was with Doris Day.

Johnny, I remember reading that too [years ago] about MM wanting to do Pillow Talk- I honestly cannot picture her though in the role of a smart confident interior designer living life on men's terms.

Johnny, you do a good job on this topic. I don't remember Veda Borg in the first 4 films noted, but she didn't really have a supporting role in "Love Me or Leave Me." (She had only one line, and she was uncredited.)

I was 10 when Elvis died- sitting in my aunt's kitchen - she burst out crying when the news came over the television or radio. That was my first indication that "stars" could touch our lives to the extent that we genuinely and truly cared for them.

I agree with you James. I started hearing Doris sing on the radio when I was very young and growing up in a troubled family. In all this time she has been in a special place in my heart.

Thanks, Johnny, Yes, Cary Grant died in Davenport, Iowa, on this day in 1986,

Image

Cary Grant and Doris Day shop for clothes in New York for That Touch of Mink, circa 1962.
The debonair actor starred in films with many of the top leading ladies of the day, including Mae West, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman and Doris Day.

In the mid-1980s, after he had retired from acting, Grant visited several cities for fundraisers and to appear in a one-man question-and-answer show.

He was at the Adler Theater in downtown Davenport preparing for an appearance on the afternoon of November 29, 1986 when he started feeling ill.

Grant was taken back to the nearby Blackhawk Hotel (known as “Hotel Blackhawk” today) where a doctor found him to be having a massive stroke.

After being taken to St. Luke’s Hospital, which later became part of Genesis HealthCare System, Grant died at 11:22 p.m. at the age of 82.

The New York Times in reporting his death said Grant was “devastatingly handsome” and “a beloved figure in American film for over 30 years.”

His ashes were scattered in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of California.

Just read an obituary for Peter Baldwin, who died on November 19 in Pebble Beach, California. His name is lesser known than many, but all of us on the Forum will no doubt recognize him as the actor in "Teacher's Pet" who portrayed the young reporter who so annoyed Clark Gable's character. He later became a director of more than 500 TV episodes, including 2 of "The Doris Day Show," and was reportedly a good friend of DD's Cypress Inn partner, Denny LeVett. LeVett was quoted in the local paper as saying that Baldwin was a true gentleman and "a wonderful man to be around." In my book, that's a pretty nice legacy.
