Doris Day's last interview!

Les Brown with Doris DayDoris at time of interview looking great!

The Doris Day last interview is quite an anomaly to say the least. It was produced when Les Brownwas celebrating his 85th birthday and Doris couldn't resist being a part of it. This program has Les Brown commenting on his records throughout, as well as Doris who goes deeply into her movie career. Plus Steve Allen who worked with Les as well as vocalist Butch Stone who was a vocalist with the band from '42 until his recent departure in 2009.

Connie with Frank SinatraConnie Haines

Her live broadcasts with the Harry James Orchestra as well as her hit records with Tommy Dorsey and Frank Sinatra with the Pied Pipers. And some very candid personal moments in her life. Very touching tribute.
