Singer, actor and animal-welfare spokesperson with a decades’ long recording and screen career, Doris Day (*1922 – †2019) passed away yesterday at the ripe old age of ninety-seven. Here is Miss Day—courtesy of Nag on the Lake—belting out a number about Geiger counters and the comparing the feeling of being in love to radiation-sickness during an audition for a variety radio show called the Hour of Enchantment in the 1949 Technicolor musical My Dream is Yours. Aside from showcasing Day’s talent, the film is also remembered for extended, animated dream-sequence, with cameos of Looney Tunes characters and directed by Friz Freleng.
