"Doris Day Was A Bigger Star Than Marilyn Monroe"
12 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a wonderful show, but like most of the documentaries on Hollywood stars, the true legends don't get their due. Mr. James DID point out one fact that is true, but if you asked anyone today, they wouldn't believe it: Doris Day was, in fact, a bigger star than Marilyn Monroe.

The way the tragic Monroe is portrayed in countless books, documentaries, etc., you'd think that she was the biggest box office star in the history of films. She wasn't. Doris Day holds that record. In fact, the three biggest female names to this day are: Day, Shirley Temple and Betty Grable.
