Hollywood legend Doris Day dies at age 97

Day was honest about the likelihood of a return to Hollywood, saying she hadn't "thought much about it".

Actress, singer, and animal-rights activist Doris Day died at the age of 97 after succumbing to complications of pneumonia.

There will be no funeral or memorial service held for Doris Day.

Tributes flowed on Monday after the sad news broke.

"I am absolutely thrilled to hear that Cincinnati is honoring me with not only my own street, but my own day". "I miss my hometown and have so many lovely memories of growing up there".

Wilson wrote: "I checked the love scene rumour with producer Jose Pasternak, who said, "Yes, when the director said cut during a scene they didn't cut". "Godspeed. RIP", Sarah Jessica Parker said via Instagram.

Bashara says Day's estate will be donated to charity, per her will.

The song has always been held close by members of the LGBT+ community, with many reacting to the news of her death by sharing the song. And so when all of the financial impropriety came to light, her son put his own successful record producing career on hold and literally devoted years to helping his mother straighten out her financial mess. She took singing lessons and began appearing on local radio. "She would no doubt remind us, upon this day of her passing, 'Que sera sera, ' but we will miss her dearly anyway".

Trailer: "It: Chapter Two" Teaser Floats to the Surface
The original starred Tim Curry as circus clown Pennywise , the most common form of a shape-shifting creature simply known as "It". The trailer starts with Jessica's character Beverly Marsh returning to her old home and speaking to an elderly woman, Mrs Kersh.

Despite withdrawing from the limelight 30 years ago, and giving her final interview in 1994, Day remained an endlessly popular cinema figure whose works continue to inspire.

"She is an icon in the animal protection world and will be sorely missed for her singular advocacy", Amundson said. Though she initially wanted to become a dancer, she had to abandon the dream after an accident, according to BBC.

Doris began her career as a singer, with her breakthrough hit "Sentimental Journey" being re-recorded several times over her career, and she became one of the highest-paid vocalists in the United States in the 1950s. Longing ballads such as "Blame My Absent Minded Heart" led critic Gary Giddins to call her "the coolest and sexiest female singer of slow-ballads in movie history". Her first marriage was to trombonist Al Jorden, who she knew from her big band days.

Day was cast in "Romance on the High Seas" after Judy Garland and Betty Hutton bowed out. Day is terrific opposite James Cagney as a stylized version of 1920s songstress Ruth Etting in Charles Vidor's Love Me or Leave Me (1955): She's a woman under the sway of a gangster who has virtually bought her career for her; his cruelty toward her is too steep a price. Hitchcock did not originally want Day in the film, but to get Stewart onboard, he had to agree to also hire Day and give her a song in the film penned by the famed songwriting duo Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, the writers behind such classics as "Silver Bells" and "Mona Lisa".

Plus, other TV stars who left us in 2019.

Doris Day, who sang away "Que Sera, Sera" to people's hearts, and acted her way to stardom in the Golden Age of Hollywood, breathed her last at 97, leaving fans and fraternity members "sentimental" about her glorious "journey".

With movies trending for more explicit sex, she turned to television to recoup her finances.

She was married four times, and had one son, Terry Melcher, from her third marriage. "She was surrounded by a few close friends as she passed".
