A Down the Drive Tribute to Doris Day, The Queen of the Queen City.

Doris Day died a little more than month ago. We have been remiss in paying tribute to Cincinnati’s Doris Mary Kappelhoff, a lady who represented our great city with grace and elegance throughout her 97 years.

A fine singer, actress and television host, Doris was one of America’s best known and most beloved cultural figures in the third-quarter of the 20th century. If you’ve never seen her on screen, check her out alongside Jimmy Stewart in Alfred Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much or light-hearted comedies like Pillow Talk or The Pajama Game. At every stage of her career, Doris Day lit up the screen.

As a singer, she made classics out of “Que Sera Sera,” “Sentimental Journey,” and “Dream a Little Dream of Me.”

I’ll leave you with my favorite Doris Day song, “Till We Meet Again,” one of the finest ballads of the World War II era.

We’ll wait and pray for you each night, Doris. Till we meet again.
