Product Description

Doris Day: Virgin Territory (2007)


 Karen Whiteside


 Michael Brandon, Sue Baker, Richard Carpenter, James Garner
This documentary does a more than creditable job of explaining Day's significance in post-war American culture as an on screen icon; someone cast in stereotypical roles as the pliant wife or the perpetual virgin who nonetheless challenged such stereotypes. Likewise in the Sixties her sex-comedy roles in PILLOW TALK had a risquéness that seemed innovative at the time they were made. The fact that the times changed, rendering her screen persona obsolete, was not her fault. The documentary also illuminates her turbulent private life, from her traumatic relationship with her father, her first two failed marriages, her long-standing third marriage to a man who lost all her earnings, and a brief fourth marriage. It is only in retirement - from the screen - that she has discovered some kind of tranquility as a campaigner for animal rights.
