Doris Day's entrance -- and dress! -- in 'Do Not Disturb'

  Doris Day knows how to make an entrance.  In 1965's "Do Not Disturb," she not only stuns in an orange sequin dress, she also has a coat with a matching liner. Not to mention -- the back of the dress! Reel Old Movies posted the movie clip of Day's entrance on New Year's on TikTok . Almost 60 years later, audiences still love the dress, the entrance and the actress.  Below is the original post, along with some comments. Several followers asked to see the back of the dress. So, as requested, we're posting a photo (see above). You can also see the dress in action at around 2:30 in the trailer video.  @reeloldmovies May we all enter 2023 with this swagger #dorisday #newyear #fashion #vintagefashion #movie #film #cine #cinema #oldmovies ♬ original sound -
