...same experience...except, the words can over and over once I heard she died...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.
Casablanca was filmed years before I was born (and I'm no pup), but I've seen it so many times I know much of the dialogue by heart.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.

Here she is at the old LA Sports Arena, probably as the Celtics were beating the Lakers like they always did...These old movies are like a window into a time before society went insane.
"Doris Day"-types are rare finds in today's world.
Rest in peace.

All the old Celtics liked playing there, and they described Doris as "a nice lady"

@Ian We need a Dead Celebrities Thread sticky. That way, whenever an elderly actor or comedian that not everyone likes dies of natural causes, it won't clutter up the main PATRIOTS FOOTBALL forum. Or maybe just have mods automatically move them to the Pub Forum where they belong?PatsFans' Celebrity Grief Therapy main page is an amazing space.
Can you guys take a break for 15 minutes and give the bed pan attendant a chance to tidy up a bit?
I'm considering a new thread in order to properly reflect my depressed state right now.
Does it make a person rude though? It shouldn't.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.
CLEVER TIP: Do not click on "OT" threads.I would like to send my thoughts and prayers......via this football message board......
Just stop it. Patriots football has absolutely nothing to do with Doris Day, Tim Conway or Peggy Lipton. Ian graciously has provided this Pub Forum for off-topic discussions about dead celebrities and whatever non-football topic interests you. This is where that stuff belongs.CLEVER TIP: Do not click on "OT" threads.
Since the invention of the sport, American football has had relevance and relation to our entire culture and way of life that is rivaled only maybe by baseball, which as George Carlin correctly points out is the opposite environment.
Boston has been a baseball town, and a hockey town too for almost 100 years, and has the greatest dynasty ever in our basketball team.
But pro football captures the essence of a community's culture and spirit in its own unique fashion. People express their passion and loyalty to their region and their love for competition in rooting for their football team.
No, they did not win a title prior to 2001. But following and rooting for the Patriots was an integral part of living in New England. As in life, things don't always go well and sometimes things just go terribly. Politics, celebrities, and current events are all perceived and often put in perspective in the context of us being Pats fans. It's what we have in common.
Football may not be life. But, it's a huge part of our lives and I'm grateful for the many things I've learned from fellow posters on this site. Including stuff about football.
