Doris Day
As wholesome as a bowl of cornflakes and at least as sexy.
(Dwight MacDonald, Esquire)
The only real talent Miss Day possesses is that of being absolutely sanitary: her personality untouched by human emotions, her brow unclouded by human thought, her form unsmudged by the slightest form of femininity.
(John Simon, National Review)
Actress, Romance on the High Seas (1948)
This was Doris Day’s first picture; before she became a virgin.
(Oscar Levant)
It is hard to work up enthusiasm for the Warners' new starlet, Doris Day. Maybe this bouncy young lady has ability and no personality. But as shown in this picture, she has no more than a vigorous disposition which hits the screen with a thud.
(Bosley Crowther, New York Times)
