Hollywood Legend Doris Day Dead at 97

STAR She was known for staring rolls in Calamity Jane and Move Over

One of the biggest stars of the 1950s and '60s, Day passed away at the age of 97 at her home in Carmel Valley, Calif. Following The Pajama Game, one of her last big musicals in 1957, Doris Day starred in a slew of romantic comedy roles that saw her paired with some of Hollywood's biggest gentlemen icons.

After her contract ended, she entered the most fruitful period of her career, including dramatic parts in 'Love Me or Leave Me, ' opposite James Cagney, and in Alfred Hitchcock's 'The Man Who Knew Too Much, ' starring James Stewart.

"She brightened our lives and lived out her life with dignity".

"My public image is unshakably that of America's wholesome virgin, the girl next door, carefree and brimming with happiness", she also said in the book, via The New York Times. "But I am Miss Chastity Belt, and that's all there is to it". "Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Kim Novak?"

What were Doris Day's most famous roles?

Fellow Star Trek cast member.

Though the Blue Jackets pushed hard each play and hoped to stay alive, Rask shut them down on 10 power plays in the final three games of the series.

Just a month ago, Day granted a phone interview to THR as she turned 97, summing up her legacy in film by saying, "I enjoyed working and always tried to do the best job I could with every role". She even missed various awards due to having to travel by plane.

More recently, UDA leader and drug dealer Jim Gray, who was murdered by rival loyalists in 2005, was nicknamed Doris Day because of his dyed blond hair, his gold jewellery and pastel coloured clothes.

She dreamed of a career as a dancer until she injured her right leg in a vehicle accident as a teenager. "Que Sera, Sera" remains one of Day's most popular songs, featured in both TV and movies. She changed her surname at the suggestion of a band leader who heard her sing "Day by Day".

Day's movie debut, "Romance on the High Seas" in 1948, was a hit. Her turn as the mother of a kidnapped child, in The Man Who Knew Too Much, was an eye-opener.

Day, who had a string of hit records before becoming a superstar of the silver screen in films like Pillow Talk and That Touch of Mink, has been described as a "legend of an innocent age" in Hollywood with a radiant smile to match her whiter-than-white reputation. "She had a heart of gold and was a very amusing lady who I shared many laughs with", McCartney said in a statement on his website. Her gift for phrasing suggests that she treated each song as a fresh adventure: Her version of Irving Berlin's "I Got the Sun in the Morning" is a joyous ramble-it swings, but Day controls the beat with the same command a butterfly has over the movement of its wings. Television stardom on "The Doris Day Show" followed her movie career.

Her eponymous animal foundation have revealed the Calamity Jane actress wanted to be buried in an unmarked grave but fans wishing to pay their respects can honour the star by visiting their charity. "She was surrounded by a few close friends as she passed". She was a true star in more ways than one.

Her last release, the compilation album My Heart, went to number one in the United Kingdom in 2011. Proceeds from the recording went to her animal foundation.
