I’m excited that Doris Day will be releasing a new album. It doesn’t surprise me, because she seems to have stayed incredibly active and healthy-- Laura’s Miscellaneous Musings

Check out Day’s recorded message to her fans on her official website. She sounds wonderful. She’s planning to be in the spotlight more often now, and it’s all because of her desire to raise money to help animals. (I just happened to get a disc with Storm Warning (1951) in the mail today. It was really weird hearing her voice right after seeing that movie. Those of you who have seen it know what I mean!)— Doris Day

This lucky woman has made contact with both Olivia de Havilland and Joan Fontaine. She’s collected some amazing memorabilia as well-- Olivia and Joan: Sisters of the Silver Screen

A lovely tribute to the voiceover. I’m a fan of them if they are approached throughtfully-- The Stuff Dreams Are Made Of

The last movie I decided to watch because of pics I saw of the costumes was Nazimova’s Salome (1923). Based on these shots, I am willing to give it another try with La Siren Des Tropiques (1927). I think that I have sufficiently recovered-- Flapper Doodle

I love these gorgeous paintings inspired by Hitchcock flicks Pictures

Turns out the ending of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969) might not be accurate-- NPR
