DORIS DAY SAYS: a Never be lonely'' The time we spend by ourselves can be some of the most precious time of our lives, says Doris, who tells how she beat loneliness Bv HELEN HENDRICKS STUDYING script of their new picture, "Pillow Talk," Doris and Rock Hudson look all business. It was first time they'd teamed. LT WAS ON the loneliest afternoon of her life that Doris Day met George Washington. It was the general, himself . . . Father of His Country . . . master of Mount Vernon . . .who turned Doris's most miserable hour into a marvelous adventure and who showed her that she never need be lonely again. Sounds crazy? Maybe . . . just a little. But, actually, when you've heard the story, you'll discover with Doris that to meet George Washington is perfectly possible and that no one ... no one at all . . . is ever really alone. "'Each of us," Doris says today, recalling her experience, "is in a world filled with marvelous opportunities for learning, for friend- ships, and for happiness. I firmly believe that all things work for our good, including occasional solitude. And the time that we spend by ourselves can be some of the most precious time of our lives." But Doris hadn't reached this conclusion on the day she met George Washington. She met the general in Fraunces' Tavern in New York, an ironic place for an introduc- tion, since it is famous for a farewell—Washing- ton's farewell to his army. When Doris met him. he didn't walk up and tip his hat and say, "I beg your pardon, but I'm George Washington." The introduction was a lot more subtle than that but, in the long run, more effective. How did Doris happen to be in Fraunces' Tavern on a dismal, tear-tempting day? She'd come there in flight from four very dull walls of a very lonely hotel room. She'd come to escape from the solitude which she has since learned to appreciate. "When anybody asks me," says Doris, '"when in my life I've been loneliest, I instantly think of an engagement in New York, singing with Les Brown's band. "We were there for eight weeks, and for the first few days, I was miserable. Naturally, I was thrilled to sing with such a fine orchestra, but after the lonely hours I expe- rienced at first, the thrill wore awfully thin. I became very depressed."' continued on page 18 16
