Doris Day in the Movies 3

May 19, 2020#1970


By the time 1951 rolled around, Doris Day was a full-fledged Hollywood star. The studio worked her hard, starring her in five movies in 1951 through 1953. Four of them were musicals. The fifth, “The Winning Team,” gave Doris the opportunity to show her newly developed drama talent as she played the wife of baseball pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander, played by Ronald Reagan. The other four movies were “Starlift,” “April in Paris,""By the light of the silvery moon” and “Calamity Jane.”
