Doris Day gets her due at The Music Box Theatre

For several weekends now, The Music Box Theatre, 3733 N. Southport Ave., Chicago, has been screening classic Doris Day movies. The series is titled “The Inimitable Doris Day” and the films have been screened, for the most part on Saturday mornings at 11:30 a.m.


Saturday, November 2, they’ll be screening one of Day’s most famous roles as Jan Morrow in Pillow Talk (1959). The film costarring Rock Hudson, was a tremendous box office hit, earning Day her only Academy Award Best Actress nomination. The picture did wonders for both Day and Hudson’s careers and they made two more successful comedies together: Lover Come Back (1961) and Send Me No Flowers (1964). The film also stars Tony Randall and Thelma Ritter. Randall also costars in Lover Come Back and Send Me No Flowers.

Pillow Talk demonstrates Day’s ability to tackle any movie genre with ease. She’s a natural comic actress and she’s a knockout in the clothes designed for her by Jean Louis.

Lover Come Back will be screened on November 23 and 24 at 11:30 a.m. For more details, please visit the Music Box Web site.
