In the new issue of Closer Weekly, on newsstands now, Doris Day reflects on her iconic Hollywood career and co-stars.
Which of her leading men was the best kisser? In typical Doris fashion, the very private film star tells Closer, “Even at age 90, a girl never kisses and tells!”
On Moonlight Bay (1951)
“This was one of several films I made with the wonderful Gordon MacRae. It was fun and sweet and captured a more innocent time,” Doris tells Closer.
Calamity Jane (1953)
As the rootin’-tootin’ Western legend, she tamed Howard Keel’s Wild Bill Hickok. “I’ve always been a tomboy at heart, so I had a ball filming it — and the fans seem to love it, too. It has some great songs, including ‘Secret Love.’”
Pillow Talk (1959)
Doris and Rock Hudson fall madly in love while sharing a phone line in this box-office smash. “This sophisticated romantic comedy was considered a bit risqué in its time,” Doris admits to Closer. “It was the first of three films I made with Rock. We hit it off immediately and laughed ourselves silly.”
The Thrill of It All (1963)
“I liked playing a wife and mother torn between her family and her career. It was also my first film with James Garner — a sweet, funny man who remains my buddy.”
With Six You Get Eggroll (1968)
“This was my last film, and I think it captured the challenges of blended families with great humor. Brian [Keith] and I improvised some of our scenes — he was such a joy to work with.”
