Doris Day was a major star during the 1950s and ‘60s. Today, forty years after her last film, the star (who was ninety in April 2012) is often still invoked as shorthand for a kind of sexuality now felt outmoded, being typecast as ‘the forty year old virgin’. Close attention to the facts of Day's own life (three times married) challenges this assumption and the majority of her film roles also prove otherwise, with Day most frequently portraying a woman of maturely sexual desires. How did such pejorative labelling arise, and why has it stuck so tenaciously to Day, even now? This book addresses these questions through closely examining Day's characters and performances across her thirty-eight films and her TV work, as well as material from other popular media for the source of the virgin myth. It then focuses on contemporary popular culture contexts, using newspaper stories, articles from film, fan and lifestyle magazines, reviews and gossip to chart the developments in Day's screen ‘persona’ are charted, highlighting the changes in public perception of the star of Calamity Jane, Love Me Or Leave Me and Pillow Talk as aided and abetted by the media.

David Hedison, who plays a tiny human-headed insect menaced by a spider in the SF classic The Fly (1958), says the moviemakers spoiled the scene by giving him a squeaky voice. Imagine if, as the camera moved in closer, you actually heard me screeeeaming for my life, the actor rhapsodizes. THAT is horror. In Tom Weaver's eighth interview book, Hedison--and 22 other moviemakers--discuss their horror and science fiction movie experiences as part of such films and TV series as The Blob, It Came from Outer Space, Star Trek, The Wild Wild West, Somewhere in Time, and Forbidden Planet. Among those interviewed are Dan O'Herlihy, Kate Phillips, John Alvin, Anthony Cardoza, Tod Griffin, Alex and Richard Gordon, Suzanne Kaaren, and Warren Stevens. Full credits are provided for the actors, actresses, and producers.
