A life that has had more down's than up's, a victim of domestic abuse, more than one failed marriage and more than one rumoured extra marital affair, financial embezzlement and ruin at the hands of one of her spouses (to list but a few of her tribulations) it is a wonder that this lady has maintained not only her sensibility but more importantly her senses! All that said she is not without her faults (something that the lady herself has reiterated many times), and it is in her relationships with friends, acquaintances and employees that we learn that Doris Day could and can be in her own way, quite ruthless and unforgiving. And it is perhaps these traits that I found particularly difficult to digest.
Perhaps like many I bought into the "public" persona and finding that Doris Day is a many faceted and complex persona kind of had me questioning her character. But my antipathy was only temporary. In the pages of this well researched and very detailed biography we discover that 'flaws and all', Doris Day today, is still a remarkable and endearing human being. As a movie star, a recording sensation, television legend and animal rights crusader Doris Day remains for me a true, legend.
This is not, as Mr. Kaufman would have it, a woman who is hiding from the rest of the world due to the bad treatment she received from people that came in and out of her life. Known to be a woman with a very forgiving heart and one who consistently has shown strength through adversity, she has been thrown a lot of life's surprises along the way. The fact that she is forgiving and moves on, does not make her someone who is afraid to look at the past, nor is she someone who is trying to get over an abandonment issue and so has devoted her life to the animals....his whole thought process through his book just makes me ill.
Ms. Day has always had a love for animals. This is a part of her nature. Now, that she has retired and has the time away from the silver screen, she is doing what she loves to do, and so for all the great humanitarian contributions she has made across this nation, we have people like Mr. Kaufman who have their own theories and then put them in print for their own self gain.Read more ›
