★ If anyone truly deserves to be called ‘lovely’, it’s Doris Day. Beautiful, talented, kind, and with a wonderfully sunny disposition, she’s one of my favourite actresses from the golden age of Hollywood. I think her charming personality really shines through in this photo, don’t you? It was taken as Day welcomed home the anti-aircraft cruiser, USS Juneau, from a stint in the Korean War. Spending time visiting crew members and attending. This photo shows her holding a bouquet consisting of 16 red roses – again, one for each division aboard the ship – that had just been presented to her by Bernie W. Boyer (left) on behalf of the crew, as James E. Stanford (right) looked on.
