I know these Waldina Week In Reviews are not very every week. I am still going to post-date this one to be published on Sunday night.
I just noticed that Silk Stalkings, Hunter, The Greatest American Hero, and Madame Sin on Amazon Prime. All I need now is influenza. It’s the best time to watch TV you would never watch. So what did I watch while getting ready this morning? I chose It Happened To Jane (1961). It has Doris Day, Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs, and too many recognizable supporting actors to count. There is something about Doris Day and Jack Lemmon that I find exceptionally comforting and I have not seen this film. So far, it is exactly what I wanted.
Then I read that today Doris Day passed away.
The AP reports: ‘The Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed Day died early Monday at her Carmel Valley, California, home. The foundation said she was surrounded by close friends. “Day had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia, resulting in her death,” the foundation said in an emailed statement.’
Variety adds: ‘The vivacious blonde, who also had a successful singing career, teamed with Rock Hudson in “Pillow Talk” and other lighthearted romantic comedies including “Lover Come Back” and “Send Me No Flowers.” Her other significant screen roles included Alfred Hitchcock thriller “The Man Who Knew Too Much” (1956), co-starring James Stewart and featuring Day’s Oscar-winning song “Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be”); and “The Pajama Game” (1957), based on the Broadway musical.’
