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, has died. She was 97.

The Doris Day Animal Foundation confirmed Day died early Monday at her Carmel Valley, California, home. The foundation said she was surrounded by close friends.

“Day had been in excellent physical health for her age, until recently contracting a serious case of pneumonia, resulting in her death,” the foundation said in an emailed statement.

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.”

  1. One of my 'Most Favorite' singers of all time, I would Recognize Her
    Voice in million voices …. The sparkle Smiled, Ever Shining, ever
    cheerful, Golden Lady, May she be more comfortable then ever and may her
    Voice echoes in heaven forever .
    Its straight from the bottom of my Heart

  2. I love all of her movies between 1953 and 1963 (with the exception of the ghastly “The Tunnel of Love” ).While I love Doris in
    her sunny musicals and comedies,her dramatic movies ; “The Man Who Knew Too Much”,”Julie” and “Midnight Lace” are three
    of my most treasured Doris Day gems on DVD.I wrote to her twice (from N.Z.) and she sent lovely personal replies.Thank you.

  3. Me and my sister would watch on Saturday afternoons and Sunday afternoons many of her films. She didn't do as many films as I thought she did. According to experts they say she only made about 40 films. Though 40 films may seem like a lot there are other actors of her genre who did way more. And they're not all male actors there are just as many female actresses who appeared in way more than 40 films. But she also had numerous TV shows and TV specials under her belt. Both she and Peggy Lipton will be deeply missed. Those legends of yesteryear are leaving us more rapidly than ever. God's calling his people home. Doesn't matter how old you are – enjoy your life the best honest way.
