A 50s Icon

Driving home just now, I was trying to think of all the people who had both a strong musical  presence and a strong stage or screen presence.

There have been a few stars of either the small or big screen that were 1 hit wonders. But the screen stars who have also had a strong presence on the radio have been few and far between.

I’m thinking of Bing Crosby and Barbara Streisand.

And Doris Day.

Others?

Growing up in Studio City I will always remember this song of hers.

For many years, she lived a quiet life in Carmel.

Celebrate a bit of her legacy here.
