PBS documentary on the life and career of entertainer Doris Day, who began as a vocalist in the Big Band-era before attracting the attention of Hollywood producers, resulting in a lengthy movie career of 'clean' musicals, comedies and dramas--many of which gave her the reputation of a goody-two-shoes. Interviewed her, Day isn't as incisive as she was when dictating her memoirs to biographer A.E. Hotchner in 1975; however, her personal or professional woes don't appear to be the theme this time. PBS (perhaps wisely) turns the focus to Day's music, and the special features some rare and beautiful vocal performances. Lovely all the way through, Doris in 1991 was as vital as ever, particularly when delivering a modern love song such as the end-credits gem "My Heart".
