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. Lightly toned. Normal bank stamps and cancellation holes, which touch both signature and endorsement. Tape remnants at top edge. Light tears at top and bottom edge. Light dent in right side. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise, fine condition.
