Email a Friend
Hollywood starlet Doris Day was a household name back in the 1950s and 1960s and while she withdrew from public life shortly thereafter, she is still the top-ranking female box-office star of all time. We look at her career with a Doris Day biographer and hear songs inspired by Day's career performed by singer-songwriter Nellie McKay live in our studio. Also: Film composer Carter Burwell and cellist Maya Beiser discuss the art of film scoring.
