|Doris Day's new album|
Sadly Doris Day's career had no contact with cricket. This is remarkable since she was responsible for the song that sums up the batsman's feelings as the ball thumps against his front pad and full throated appeals are sounded all around. 'Que Sera Sera. Whatever will be, will be.' For some reason fatalistic batsmen did not take up the song, but the song did become the anthem of the poor misguided souls who form the band of supporters of the Scottish football team. The song first featured in Alfred Hitchcock's film 'The Man Who Knew Too Much' - but given the Tartan Army's embrace of it, the film could be retitled The Men Who Knew Nothing At All.'
|The Doris Day Appreciation Society|
Among her long long list of movies, FB greatly enjoyed her co starring with Frank Sinatra in the greatly soppy and sentimental Young at Heart. They just don't make movies like that anymore. Tragic.
Doris Day has also been a long time and committed campaigner against cruelty to animals. it is due to her that many movies feature in their title the legend 'No Doris Days suffered in the making of this motion picture.' Regrettably her campaigning has not managed to stamp out the manifest cruelties imposed on incompetent batsmen such as FB. Are they not properly to be considered members of the animal kingdom? Come on Doris - there is still work for you to do.
