2013 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 2: Doris Day

Welcome to DAY TWO the 2013 TCM Summer Under the Stars blogathon!

We have more classic film bloggers to spotlight on Day Two, better known as Doris Day Day! Wait. That sounds funny. You know what I mean.

First, a little Doris Day trivia … According to IMDb (so it MUST be true), Doris Day TURNED DOWN the role of Mrs. Robinson in 1967’s The Graduate. The role was eventually made famous by Anne Bancroft.

SUTS and Oscar: Doris Day has been nominated for only one Oscar in her career: for 1959’s Pillow Talk (lost to Simone Signoret in Room at the Top).

Now back to blogging!

Calamity Jane Doris Day LTBX

Making her second consecutive appearance is @BellaKarma, aka Jill from Stix on the Beach. Today she looks at Day in the wonderfully titled A Difference A Day Makes.

Another two-day participant is Mary from Classic Film Watch. Today Mary has two essays on Day: her film debut Romance on the High Seas and the fun musical Lullaby of Broadway.

Making her 2013 SUTS blogathon debut is Jennifer Garlen (@garlengirl on Twitter), author of Beyond Casablanca: 100 Classic Movies Worth Watching, with her take on Day in Love Me or Leave Me.

Aurora from Once Upon a Screen returns with a post on Calamity Jane, one of Day’s personal favorites.

Margaret Perry may not be a huge fan of Doris Day, but she still put together a fun post filled with quotes and anecdotes.

Jessica from Comet Over Hollywood joins in today’s tribute to Ms. Day with her piece From Hollywood Party to Leading Role.

Over at The Moviola, Carley dishes about how Calamity Jane almost destroyed her parents marriage. It’s totally funny now, though.

EXTRA:

Kimblery Truhler, style expert and owner of the fabulous site GlamAmor, has graciously allowed us to share some past pieces on Doris Day and her fabulous sense of style. First up is a look at Day’s colorful wardrobe in Please Don’t Eat the Daisies. Next is the gorgeous Norman Norell designs Day wore alongside co-star Cary Grant in That Touch of Mink. And finally, Kimberly discusses the legendary Jean Louis designed wardrobe from Pillow Talk. Amazing costumes. Plus it’s Doris Day, Rock Hudson, and Tony Curtis! The best threesome since…ever? (and can we get a hell yeah for Thelma Ritter and Allen Jenkins? #TeamThelma)

Check back throughout the day because there are MORE POSTS COMING!
