The Globe Magazine recently published an entire issue this month devoted to the life and career of Doris Day. Unfortunately, one of the photos of "Doris" in the piece is really film star Jean Seberg. The photograph of Jean on the beach wearing a large hat was taken while she was filming Moment to Moment in 1965.
Doris Day was known for the many hats she wore in most of her 1960s films. To make matters worse, The Huffington Post reprinted the photo with accoladesto "Doris's look" and "smokey eyes".
Jean had stood in for Doris doing a promotional tour on the east coast of Day's 1959 film It Happened to Jane. Jean was signed to Columbia, the studio that released the film, and Day fell ill unable to make the trip. Later in the year, Jean made Breathless, which changed the course of her life and career--and film in general. The same year, Doris made Pillow Talk which brought back sophisticated adult comedies, the beginning of her five year reign as the top box office movie performer, and her sole Academy Award® nomination.
McGee (Emmy® nominated writer of the documentary The Last Wright) has joined Emmy® nominated filmmakers Kelly and Tammy Rundle (Lost Nation: The Ioway 1, 2 &3; Country School: One Room - One Nation; Villisca: Living with a Mystery) to produce the documentary feature on Jean Seberg's life entitled Movie Star: The Secret Lives of Jean Seberg. The film is slated for release later this year.
