One thought on “Winner of the 50’s Era (6th Favourite Classic Movie Actress Tourney)

  1. These polls fascinate me because they speak to trends and styles and expectations of both past and present. Doris Day is probably my least favorite actresses within an era of social upheaval (i.e. changing public roles for and perceptions of women and African Americans as well as the Cold War) that Hollywood addressed in genres like noir and SF and resisted in most romantic comedies and musicals. It’s why I’m drawn to the disruptive comedy of Judy Holliday, for example, and not to that of Doris Day. Anyhow, just some thoughts that come to me as I enjoy participating. 🙂
