    Some historians believe when Mary Shelley began writing Frankenstein in 1816, she named the main character after the von Franckenstein family. Clement, whose middle name was George, may have grown weary of hearing Frankenstein jokes; he occasionally used the name Clement St. George. He portrayed the royal announcer in Mel Brooks' Robin Hood: Men In Tights and had a small uncredited role in – yes – Young Frankenstein.

    Legendary actress and singer Doris Day dead at 97
    The Associated Press, May 13 2019 9:07 AM

    Doris Day, the honey-voiced singer and actress whose film dramas, musicals and innocent sex comedies made her a top star in the 1950s and '60s and among the most popular screen actresses in history, died early this morning at her Carmel Valley, California, home. She was 97. With her lilting contralto, wholesome blonde beauty and glowing smile, she was a top box office draw and recording artist known for such films as Pillow Talk and That Touch Of Mink and for such songs as Whatever Will Be Will Be (Que Sera Sera) from the Alfred Hitchcock film The Man Who Knew Too Much.

    Her 1976 tell-all book, Doris Day: Her Own Story, chronicled her money troubles and three failed marriages, contrasting with the happy publicity of her Hollywood career. She never won an Academy Award but Day was given a Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004, as George W. Bush declared it "a good day for America when Doris Marianne von Kappelhoff of Evanston, Ohio decided to become an entertainer."

    Born to a music teacher and a housewife, she had dreamed of a dance career, but at age 12, she suffered a crippling accident: a car she was in was hit by a train and her leg was badly broken. Listening to the radio while recuperating, she began singing along with Ella Fitzgerald, "trying to catch the subtle ways she shaded her voice, the casual yet clean way she sang the words." Day began singing in a Cincinnati radio station, then a local nightclub, then in New York. A bandleader changed her name to Day, after the song Day After Day, to fit it on a marquee. Her Hollywood career began after she sang at a Hollywood party in 1947. After early stardom as a band singer and a stint at Warner Bros., Day won the best notices of her career with Love Me Or Leave Me, the story of songstress Ruth Etting and her gangster husband-manager.

    She followed with another impressive film, Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much, starring her and James Stewart as an innocent couple ensnared in an international assassination plot. She sings Que Ser, Sera" just as the story reaches its climax and viewers are beside themselves with suspense. The 1958 comedy Teacher's Pet paired her with an aging Clark Gable as an idealistic college journalism teacher and her student, an old-school newspaper editor.

    But she found her greatest success in slick, stylish sex comedies, beginning with her Oscar-nominated role in Pillow Talk. She and Rock Hudson were two New Yorkers who shared a telephone party line and initially hated each other. She followed with The Thrill Of It All, playing a housewife who gains fame as a TV pitchwoman to the chagrin of obstetrician husband James Garner. The nation's theater owners voted her the top moneymaking star in 1960, 1962, 1963 and 1964.

    Her first musical hit was the 1945 smash, "Sentimental Journey," when she was barely in her 20s. Among the other songs she made famous were Everybody Loves A Lover, Secret Love and It's Magic, a song from Romance On The High Seas, her first film. Warner Bros. cashed in on its new star with a series of musicals, including My Dream Is Yours, Tea For Two and Lullaby Of Broadway. Her dramas included Young Man With A Horn, with Kirk Douglas and Lauren Bacall, and Storm Warning, with Ronald Reagan and Ginger Rogers.

    Her last film was With Six You Get Eggroll, a 1968 comedy about a widow and a widower and the problems they have when blending their families. With movies trending for more explicit sex, she turned to television to recoup her finances. The Doris Day Show was a moderate success in its 1966-1973 run on CBS.
