From my collection: "The Other" Doris Day

Yes, before "our" Doris Day burst onto the Technicolor screens in ROMANCE OF THE HIGH SEAS in 1948 there had been another, older, Doris Day, a Republic Pictures starlet who appeared opposite Roy Rogers in THE SAGA OF DEATH VALLEY (1939). For the sake of completion, if nothing else, this Doris Day was under contract to Republic from September 29, 1939 until January 28, 1940, after which she spent another year or so in pictures playing background roles. The Hempstead, NY, native died at Huntington Beach, CA, in 1998. She was 88.
