Quizzical Ponderings 8: 60s Screen Siren

It’s no secret that I would always, always choose to live in the 60s if I could. The fashion was always on-point, experimenting with makeup was a “do”, the movies were so fun, and the music… OH THE MUSIC! The 60s–although I was technically 2+ decades removed from them–would have been phenomenal to live through. (Although this may have been the decade my father broke his nose 5 times during. He probably thinks it was justified when he won the Little League Championship in 1969 with his Northtown Lumber team. But I digress.)

 

(My father's bragging rights. He's on the far left in the top row (next to his father). His brother is in the front row toward the middle. My boyfriend's dad is in the top row on the far right. Small world, huh?)

So, of course, I took the “Which 60’s Screen Siren Are You?” quiz. Although I would probably prefer a Julie Andrews or an Audrey Hepburn because of my admiration for those women, I don’t hate Doris Day. I mean, such an accomplished and overwhelmingly good woman! So–as unexpected as it may have been–below are my results. Click here to take the quiz yourself.

Congrats you are Doris Day! Doris Day is an American actress, singer, and animal rights activist. Over the course of her career, Day appeared in 39 films. She was ranked the biggest box-office star, the only woman on that list, for four years (1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964) ranking in the top 10 for ten years (1951–1952 and 1959–1966). She became the top-ranking female box-office star of all time and is currently ranked sixth among the top 10 box office performers (male and female), as of 2012. Her strong commitment to animal welfare began in 1971, when she co-founded “Actors and Others for Animals”. She started her own non-profit organization in the late 1970s, the Doris Day Animal Foundation and, later, the Doris Day Animal League (DDAL). Establishing the annual observance Spay Day USA in 1994, the Doris Day Animal League now partners with the Humane Society of the United States and continues to be a leading advocacy organization. In 2004, she received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in recognition of her distinguished service to the country. You’re gorgeous but more importantly you have a warm, caring personality to go along with your beauty! Like Doris, you also have a sense of humor and smile that can cheer anyone up! There’s no heart that you can’t melt. Animals have a special place in your heart and you may even be a animal rights activist one day!
