Hi Paul, I love and agree with everything you said in your eloquent post on Doris. Doris Day's kindness, humility and humanity is evident in everything she did in her films, music, dance and advocacy for animals. Hollywood underappreciated Doris' talents and only looked at her as a money - making ma...

I am excited to hear about Paul's book More Than Freckles, ( Perfect Title). Thank you Howard for sharing the story about Doris' kindness towards Gordon MacRae. I imagine there are many more similar stories . Doris spent her life helping make animals' lives better through kindness and advocacy.

Re: PAUL BROGAN'S "MORE THAN JUST FRECKLES" CLASS

Thank you so much Howard for these facinating stories about Doris from Paul. There are wonderful surprises

I do recall reading that Elizabeth Taylor phoned Doris trying to get her to accept a role in the movie These Old Broads. I would think the title alone would sound offensive to Doris.
