Doris Day was a legendary actress and singer who rose to fame in the fifties and sixties. In addition to being named America's Sweetheart, she's also been called 'the quintessential all-American' girl. Day got her break while singing on the radio show Carlin's Carnival, but her real breakthrough came in 1956 when she starred in Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Little

From there she went onto have her own television show, The Doris Day Show, from 1968 to 1973. After her retirement she moved to Carmel-By-The-Sea, California. This beauty received the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2004.

Jacob Shelton is a Los Angeles based writer. For some reason this was the most difficult thing he’s written all day, and here’s the kicker – his girlfriend wrote the funny part of that last sentence. As for the rest of the bio? That’s pure Jacob, baby. He’s obsessed with the ways in which singular, transgressive acts have shaped the broader strokes of history, and he believes in alternate dimensions, which means that he’s great at a dinner party. When he’s not writing about culture, pop or otherwise, he’s adding to his found photograph collection and eavesdropping on strangers in public.
