The Doris Day Blogathon has arrived!

Singing. Dancing. Acting. Doris Day could do them all terrifically and for the next three days, we'll be celebrating the enormous talents of Ms. Day, whose birthday is on the third! Best of all, the gorgeous lady is still with us!

Bloggers, please send me your links as soon as possible and I'll link to them as fast as I can. I'm not a big social media person, so if you could please spread the word about this event, that would be so lovely of you! This is my second blogathon and I'm hoping to make it even more successful than the last!

UPDATE: Since it appears that other blogathons and personal events have delayed submissions, I'll be extending the blogathon an extra day. Doris deserves all the love we can give her, after all!

Enjoy the wondrous entries!

I write about one of the most underrated musicals you'll ever see, The Pajama Game (1957).

Crimson Kimono tells us about Day's magnificent performance in The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956).

Wish you were in Paris right now? (Always.) Vintage Anne takes us there with April in Paris (1952).

Old Hollywood Films shares with us one of Day's best films, Love Me or Leave Me (1955).

Day is one of classic Hollywood's biggest fashion icons and It's a Wonderful Movie shows us why in her look at Day's film fashion. (Make sure you wish Nell a happy birthday, too!)

Reelweegiemidget Reviews gives us the details on Day's last film, With Six You Get Eggroll (1968).

Cinema Cities explores Day's favorite role in Calamity Jane (1953).

James Garner was one of Day's best partners and Phyllis Loves Classic Movies tells us what made them such a lovely team in her post Doris Day and James Garner: Their Films and Friendship.

The Wonderful World of Cinema writes a beautiful tribute to Day. (She also shares a birthday with Ms. Day, so stop by and tell Virginie "happy birthday!")

LA Explorer writes about two of Day's films, the delightful On Moonlight Bay (1951) and its sequel By the Light of the Silvery Moon (1953).

Champagne for Lunch writes about the fun of Move Over, Darling (1963).

Whimsically Classic recommends one of Day's first films, It's a Great Feeling (1949).

Back to Golden Days looks at one of the quintessential romantic comedies, Pillow Talk (1959).

Crítica Retrô looks at Young at Heart (1954), a terrific film co-starring Frank Sinatra.

Christina Wehner tells us why Day is such an extraordinary singer in her post Doris Day -- Singer.

In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood tells us about Day's longtime dedication towards animals in her piece Doris Day and Her Undying Love for Animals.


Thank you so much to everyone who participated, both bloggers and readers!
