With her bobbed, blonde hair and flashing smile, Doris Day was the ultimate happy-go-lucky girl next door for the American public. In reality, however, Day’s life was much darker and more troubled. Married young to a violent bully, Day remained a reluctant star throughout her life whose dream of settling down to a happy, simple life was always thwarted by her attraction to the wrong kind of men, namely thugs and crooks who took their anger out on her. From the beginning of her career touring with bands through her Hollywood heydays, Day remained a diligent worker, yet her manger managed to defraud her of millions. Featuring a full discography and film list, this revealing biography takes a fascinating look at the trials and tribulations behind a resilient but troubled American icon.
