Late Movies: Happy Birthday, Doris Day!

Today is Doris Day's birthday! With an entertainment career that spanned nearly 50 years, Day was America's sweetheart. Tonight, check out her crystal-clear voice and watch one of her films, The Thrill of It All. Happy Birthday, Doris!

Que Sera Sera

Though this song has been covered by dozens of artists, Day originated it for Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much.

Fly Me To The Moon

Doris Day recorded this song on November 5, 1964, for her album Latin For Lovers.

Dream a Little Dream of Me

This song was on Day's album Day by Night. It was originally performed by Ozzie Nelson.

I Left My Heart in San Francisco

Tony Bennett performed with Day on her television series, The Doris Day Show. She hated television work, but was locked in a contract set up by her husband.

Let the Little Girl Limbo

I don't know why this song isn't played at more weddings.

The Thrill of It All

In case you need a bigger dose of Day, you can watch this entire film here.

Mister Rogers Is Now a Funko Pop! and It’s Such a Good Feeling, a Very Good Feeling

It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood for fans of Mister Rogers, as Funko has announced that, just in time for the 50th anniversary of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, the kindest soul to ever grace a television screen will be honored with a series of Funko toys, some of them limited-edition versions.

The news broke at the New York Toy Fair, where the pop culture-loving toy company revealed a new Pop Funko! in Fred Rogers’s likeness—he’ll be holding onto the Neighborhood Trolley—plus a Mister Rogers Pop! keychain and a SuperCute Plush.

In addition to the standard Pop! figurine, there will also be a Funko Shop exclusive version, in which everyone’s favorite neighbor will be wearing a special blue sweater. Barnes & Noble will also carry its own special edition, which will see Fred wearing a red cardigan and holding a King Friday puppet instead of the Neighborhood Trolley.

Mister Rogers’s seemingly endless supply of colored cardigans was an integral part of the show, and a sweet tribute to his mom (who knitted all of them). But don’t go running out to snatch up the whole collection just yet; Funko won’t release these sure-to-sell-out items until June 1, but you can pre-order your Pop! on Amazon right now.
