Please drop this item in rural OR Premium Member Only caches.  Do not place it in an urban cache or abandon it at a caching event.  Transport the bug in the original plastic bag for as long as the bag lasts; the bag keeps the trackable clean, protects the number and prevents tangling with other items.  Otherwise, take the travel bug anywhere you wish.  No permission is needed to leave the U.S.

Photos of the travel bug are appreciated.  I will be re-post them here, where they can be seen by other cachers.

About This Item

This “Star” series of travel bugs is to bring attention to my favorite movie actors.  Some have awards, some do not.  There is no criterion to be included as a favorite beyond I will watch anything that has her/him in it.

One of America's most popular actresses in the 1950s and 1960s, Doris Day was born Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff in Cincinnati, Ohio.   Her grandparents were all German immigrants.  Her parents divorced while she was still a child and she lived with her mother. Like most little girls, Doris liked to dance.  At fourteen, she formed a dance act with a boy, Jerry Doherty, and they won $500 in a local talent contest.  She and Jerry took a brief trip to Hollywood to test the waters. They felt they could succeed, so she and Jerry returned to Cincinnati with the intention of packing and making a permanent move to Hollywood.  Tragically, the night before she was to move to Hollywood, she was injured riding in a car hit by a train, ending the possibility of a dancing career.

It was a terrible setback, but after taking singing lessons she found a new vocation, and at age 15 (but saying she was 18), she began touring with the Les Brown Band.  She met trombonist Al Jorden, whom she married but divorced after two years, not long after the birth of their son Terry.  Doris married George Weidler, but this union lasted less than a year.  

Day's agent talked her into taking a screen test at Warner Bros. The executives there liked what they saw and signed her to a contract.  She had several starring movie roles.  Audiences took to her beauty and bubbly personality.   She had a terrific singing voice and simultaneously had several hit records.  In 1951 she met and married Martin Melcher.

In 1953, Doris starred in the musical Calamity Jane, which was a major hit.  Several more followed, including Lucky Me, Love Me or Leave Me, The Man Who Knew Too Much and what is probably her best-known film, Pillow Talk.  My favorites are two she made with Rock Hudson, Pillow Talk (1959) and Lover Come Back (1961).
