Happy Birthday: Doris Day!!
Doris Day's childhood idol was Ginger Rogers, with whom she starred in Storm Warning (1951). Which maybe the only Doris Day classic movies have not yet seen.
The story is about Marsha Mitchell, a traveling dress model, stops in a southern town to see her sister who has married a Ku Klux Klansman.
Marsha sees the KKK commit a murder and helps District Attorney Burt Rainey, in bringing the criminals to justice.
Joan Crawford was asked by studio boss Jack L. Warner to play Doris Day's sister in the film, Joan declined saying "Come on, Jack. No one would ever believe that I would have Doris Day for a sister!"
Doris Day's first non-singing role.
