Author/Doris Day Biographer Tom Santopietro (“Considering Doris Day”) Guests On Harvey Brownstone Interviews

Movies, Television

Harvey Brownstone conducts an in-depth Interview with Doris Day biographer, Tom Santopietro, Author, “Considering Doris Day”.

Tom Santopietro has worked for the past twenty years in the New York theater as a manager of over two dozen Broadway shows. He is also the author of The Importance of Being Barbra and the forthcoming Sinatra in Hollywood.

About “Considering Doris Day”: A revealing look at a star who was much more than just our favorite girl next door. The biggest female box office attraction in Hollywood history, Doris Day remains unequaled as the only entertainer who has ever triumphed in movies, radio, recordings, and television. But while on screen Day may have projected a wholesome image, her acting and singing range made her the role model for independent American career women for four decades.

In Considering Doris Day, Tom Santopietro reveals why Day’s work continues to resonate today, both in ever-increasing record sales and Hollywood lifetime achievement awards. Placing Day’s work within the social context of America in the second half of the twentieth century, Considering Doris Day is smart, funny, and grants Doris Day her rightful place as a singular American artist.

“A vibrant portrait of the artist and the woman” ―Publishers Weekly

“There is something thrilling about Doris Day rediscovered, especially when the archaeologist of this American treasure—Mr. Santopietro—is so right-on-the-money.” ―Liz Smith

“This book offers serious insight into a relatively neglected life. The observations are apt—and often bold.” ―The Atlantic

“Extremely acute in his critiques, Santopietro is also devastatingly witty.” ―The Globe & Mail

“Santopietro concentrates on her multifaceted career. He is sympathetic to women and knowledgeable about his subject, and his respect for her is refreshing.” ―The New York Times Book Review

Harvey Brownstone is a retired judge of the Ontario Court of Justice and was the first openly gay judge in Canada. He is also the bestselling author of “Tug of War: A Judge’s Verdict on Separation, Custody Battles and the Bitter Realities of Family Court” and hosted “Family Matters with Justice Harvey Brownstone,” a television talk show on matters involving the family justice system.

After a distinguished legal career, Harvey was appointed a judge at the age of 38 in 1995. He has presided in family and criminal courts. He has been a trailblazer in several ways. He was the first openly gay judge in Canada. He was the first sitting judge in the world to write a national best seller and to host a TV talk show.

Harvey has been a role model and icon in the LGBTQ community. When same-sex marriage was legalized in Canada in 2003, he was the only judge to make himself publicly available to officiate at weddings for lesbian and gay couples travelling to Toronto from all over the world to get married. In 2007, he officiated at the wedding of Edith Windsor and Thea Spyer, the American couple whose marriage triggered the 2013 United States Supreme Court decision overturning the definition of “spouse” in the federal Defence of Marriage Act.

In February 2021, Harvey launched his online talk show “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” on his own YouTube channel. He saw this as an interesting hobby. Within several months, the show attracted hundreds of thousands – and then eventually, millions – of viewers. Because of the overwhelming success of the show, Harvey decided to retire from the judiciary on December 31, 2021 after having presided as a full-time judge for 26 1/2 years. Free from the constraints imposed upon judges regarding the expression of opinions and the endorsement of private enterprise, Harvey now happily devotes his full-time attention to hosting “Harvey Brownstone Interviews” as a regular member of the public – albeit one with a rather illustrious and unique career history.
