Livingston and Ray Evans won the 1957 Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song for "Que Será Será", which became a hit recording for Day. Known for her wholesome, "girl-next-door" good looks and sparkling personality, DORIS DAY (1922-2019) was one of the most popular and highest paid actresses by the early 1950s. After her would-be dancing career was sidelined by an accident, Day had turned to singing, first touring with bands and then introducing hit after hit in a string of romantic comedies. Nominated for an Academy Award for Pillow Talk (1959), "America's Sweetheart" also brightened up the silver screen opposite such romantic leading men as Rock Hudson and Cary Grant. In 1987, she established the Doris Day Animal League, America's premier lobbying organization dedicated to focusing attention on legislative issues involving the humane treatment of animals. American composer JAY LIVINGSTON (1915-2001) won Academy Awards for "Buttons and Bows" (The Paleface, 1948) and "Mona Lisa" (Captain Carey, U.S.A., 1950) as well as for "Que Será Será", and he was nominated for an Oscar for "Tammy" (Tammy and the Bachelor, 1957). In addition to his songs for Hollywood films, Livingston penned many popular television themes, including those for Bonanza and Mr. Ed. Minor surface creases and smudges (not evident head on). Fine condition.
