Considering Doris Day by Tom Santopietro
Book DescriptionThe biggest female box office attraction in Hollywood history, Doris Day remains unequalled as the only entertainer who has ever triumphed in movies, radio, recordings, and television. But while on screen Day may have projected a wholesome image, her acting and singing range made her the role model for independent career women for four decades. Tom Santopietro reveals why Day's work continues to resonate today, both in ever increasing record sales and Hollywood lifetime achievement awards. Placing Day's work within the social context of America in the second half of the twentieth century, "Considering Doris Day" is smart, funny, and grants Day her rightful place as a singular American artist.
