Pillow Talk

According to this article, the picture to your right, taken during the filming of the Doris Day/Cary Grant flick That Touch of Mink, is a snapshot of seduction:

Singer/actress DORIS DAY once embarked on a whirlwind affair with late American baseball player MICKEY MANTLE, according to an upcoming book.

American author David Kaufman clams in his tell-all tome Doris Day: The Untold Story of the Girl Next Door that Day met Mantle on the set of 1962 movie That Touch of Mink.

He writes, "A notorious womaniser, Mantle boasted to friends that not only had he slept with Day at his regular suite in New York's St. Moritz Hotel, but that she was 'one of the best f**ks of his life.'"

Sources report that Cary Grant made a pass at Berra as well, but that he lost interest when he found out that by 1962 Yogi wasn't really a catcher anymore.

Is it just me, or have you been getting more and more... ummm... crass than you used to be on your blog?

I'm just asking...

Certainly not a conscious decision, Jake. Sorry if I've offended. I generally try to keep it respectable and will continue to do so, but sometimes, well, we're all human, for all the good and the bad that entails.
