They can't all age like Betty White...or Joker
She has been retired for 50 years. I am old enough to remember when reruns of her movies on TV were hugely popular and there were only 4-5 channels back then.
I have adults kids, though, who are in their 20s and graduated from ivy league schools with highest honors, who couldn't tell you who Bogart, Bacall, Cagney, Mae West, any of those megastars were.
With the gigantic expansion of entertainment options, one can realistically phase out exposure to whole swaths of the history of entertainment. It doesn't make you stupid, just different.
That's unfortunate. If they have never seen Casablanca, To Have And Have Not or White Heat you should do them a favor and make it happen
I didn't call anyone stupid. I just said that they'd need to improve their education if they were adults who didn't know who Doris Day was. We all have holes in our education, but not even knowing Doris Day is something that should have been remedied back in childhood, unless we're talking about a family that avoids television like the plague.
Having said that:
Bogie? Really? How the hell does anyone let their kids grow up without knowing Casablanca, Bogart, Bergman, and Raines? That one boggles my mind a bit. It should probably be illegal.
Im not into Hollywood movies and don't watch live-action outside of sports, but rip
Seriously. This is Pats Pub material all the way, not main forum.
rip Doris day. she was one of the last real Hollywood stars. there is no such thing in today's Hollywood. god bless her family
Can't believe Douglas is still alive
There was a lot less Hollywood BS, except for the tabloids who were always pressing some sort of controversy.... but to a much less degree. Media was completely different then, as there was a lot less of it. News cycled weekly sometimes monthly not by the minute..
Consider Doris Day's old friend, Rock Hudson he was always thought to be some heterosexual hunk but somehow they kept his homosexuality quiet and out of the news.. Tab Hunter also.
Doris Day is a good memory, "Please don't eat the daisies"...
The day before, out of the blue, "Qué Será, Será" started running through my head on a continuous loop. Weirdest thing, I hadn't heard that song in decades. But there it was, and it turned out the deep recesses of my brain knew every word in Doris Day's crystal-clear voice. RIP.
Joker once dated Betty White.
I marvel at the fact Olivia DeHavilland is still alive at 102 years old. She worked with Clark Gable and Errol Flynn. The woman is a living breathing history book.
Stayed in her inn a few times over the years. Nice lady. Great place to relax
Tim Conway, Star of The Carol Burnett Show , Dies at 85
Visited my Mom the other day on Mother’s Day. She was actually just watching an old Carol Burnett rerun, parents always used to watch it.
She was always a big fan of Tim on that show. Was actually just thinking about how he was one of the few on that show that was still around... crazy. Rest In Peace Tim.
Dorf on Death.
BTW as you know these two DID get married
