Legendary actress, singer Doris Day dead at 97

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

Cape Town - According to a statement released by the Doris Day Foundation, the Hollywood star died on Monday. She began her professional singing career at the young age of 15. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1922, Day went on to become a star of the Classical Hollywood era, beginning with her role in 1948's Romance On The High Seas. The second was "The Pajama Game", with costar Rock Hudson.

During her career and retirement, Day always seemed to adhere to the philosophy of her biggest hit, "Que Sera, Sera", which she initially opposed as a "kiddie song" but which became her signature tune.

The pilot ended up saving all 89 passengers on board as the plane managed to make an emergency landing, against the odds. "The pilot informed us shortly before landing that the plane's nose landing gear was not working", he said.


Doris Day, the perennial girl-next-door whose career as a singer and actress spanned nearly 50 years and made her one of the biggest box Hollywood stars and most popular entertainers in the United States has died.

Day was known as a 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. This included what even she considered her best film, 1954's Love Me or Leave Me, a dramatic, though highly fictionalized, biopic of '20s singer Ruth Etting, who lived under the thumb of her short-tempered, controlling husband. "The Doris Day Show" was a moderate success in its 1966-1973 run on CBS.

Thankfully, in 1974, the actress won a $22.8 million judgment against her lawyer and business manager Jerome B. Rosenthal for mishandling her's and Melcher's assets.
