Day at a Time
Doris Day was at an apex moment of her career and personal life in
the years 1969-1974. Completing a cycle of some of the most popular
films in history, she lost her third husband, Marty Melcher just before
she began work on a TV series, "The Doris Day Show." She was just
beginning to re-bond with her son Terry and to cultivate her life-long
interest in the humane treatment and care of animals.
The star needed a secretary, and she hired Mary Anne Barothy, one of
her most devoted fans, who had experience as an Indianapolis newspaper
reporter. Mary Anne spent four years as Doris's secretary, two of those
years in the star's home.
"I'm anxious to share with you what it was like to know, work for, and
live with my friend, America's Sweetheart, Doris Day. A dream come true
for a Doris Day Fan!" - Mary Anne Barothy.
