    Seems like that is about all she ever drives in those old movies.

    Of course today, James Garner is driving a 58 Impala convertible.

    Cops just pulled up in a Ford.

    But Doris herself is generally (always?) found in something with the pentastar on the hood.

    Product placement, even back then. She may have even had a personal services deal with them to do print or television ads.

    I fell in love with DD when I was about 10 years old and she was singing "secret love" right straight at me at the movies. I saw "Calamity Jane" about 800 times I stole all the empty pop bottles in six counties to cash in a see her movie.

    The tractor she used on her TV show was an International Harvester, and in the '70s the International Harvester Scout, and other light truck based vehicles, used mopar transmissions and transfer cases.

    i would petition for Doris Day

    she represented the everyman

    yet she gave up and turned to other animals, as so many do

    I can't remember who said it, some other Hollywood actress IIRC. "I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin."

    I think he was referring to non-automotive "body parts."

    "...as so many do" :lol:



    Saw Doris Day in a movie from '63 recently and then 2 days ago , another from '63 with Debbie Reynolds (bit of a TCM jag lately).

    I dunno what it was but Doris just had it (whatever "it" was).


    Debbie ? Distant 3rd after Doris and Natalie Wood.

    it's funny, I always picture her singing the Chevrolet jingle, during a commercial, driving a large convertible. you know, "See the USA in your Chevrolet"
