Doris Day Dies: Actress, Singer, America's Girl Next Door Was 97
Doris Day, whose career spanned radio, film, TV and, perhaps most famously, the
beloved sweetly innocent "sex comedies" of the 1960s, most notably with costar
and friend Rock Hudson, died today. She was 97.
The Associated Press reported the news, as confirmed by The Doris Day Animal Foundation.
Day's Foundation attributed the death to pneumonia, noting the star had been in
excellent health until the recent illness. She died early today at her Carmel Valley, California home, surrounded by friends.
Day was the star of such Hollywood classics as With Six You Get Eggroll, Pillow
Talk, That Touch of Mink, and her own self-titled 1966-73 sitcom, and her performance of "Whatever Will Be, Will Be" in Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much proved so popular that it would become her endurable signature song (and the theme for her TV comedy).
